Spreading the Word – MCF 2017 review

Through the continued love of Jesus and ‘Making Christ First’ we look forward with anticipation to 2018 in the knowledge and faith that God will do wonderful things

Source: Moments With The Book
God has done some amazing things at MCF during the course of 2017 and it is fantastic to see how He uses what would seem to be a small group of people, (compared to other fellowships/churches) to do great things. Our Pastor, lovingly refers to us as a motley crew and Praise God that He has brought together a diverse range of people with different personalities and gifting’s to do His work and to bring His Kingdom here on earth. We thank God for all of the people in our Fellowship and we thank God for the honour of the Ministries that He has laid on our hearts. Through the continued love of Jesus and ‘Making Christ First’ we look forward with anticipation to 2018 in the knowledge and faith that God will do wonderful things. We thank God and give Him all the glory for everything He has done in 2017 and we look forward to 2018 in anticipation of the next stage of our journey.

As 2017 draws to a close we thought it would be a real blessing to share some popular blog articles that members of our congregation and some guests have posted throughout the year.  We have been publishing a new article each Sunday for just under two and a half years and God has blessed the blog to receive over 245,000 views from all over the World. Matthew 24:14 ‘And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come’.

The blog articles below are not listed in any order of popularity. If you click on the article title you will be directed to the relevant article. Why not also take the time to listen to some of the fantastic worship songs which you will find at the end of each article. You will also find other Words of God, Teachings and Testimonies in our blog archive at the right-hand side of the main blog page and if you would prefer to listen to our 2017 online sermons then take a look at our new MCF website (link) or go directly to the message online (link).  Be blessed.

Expect a miracle
A work in progress
Demonstrating the Lord’s Grace and Wisdom
Who determines the circumstances of our lives
The abundance of God’s Grace and Mercy
Seek first the Kingdom of God at all times
Choices, Choices, Choices !!
There is power in the name of Jesus
Do we miss the chance to love?
The joy of Salvation
Whoever has ears.....
How do I know I'm a Christian?
Who am I
Cast your cares on the Lord
Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you
God always shows up
What is your ‘Come to Jesus story’
Please forgive me
From Darkness to Light

As a fellowship, we pray that God's Word speaks into the hearts and minds of those who read and receive it and that lives are changed forever as a result. We give all Glory to God and pray that people Make Christ First in their lives. Amen.

Wishing everyone a happy and blessed New Year from everyone at MCF Life Church. Matthew 6:33 ‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well’.
