Today was a big day for tree Of Life as we celebrated our first birthday and appointed Dean as Lead elder of the church. During the turmoil of 2011 God gave Graham (leader of Church Of Love & Grace) a clear vision to plant a church into Macassar and on the 15th January last year the vision was realised as Tree Of Life was planted out of Mitchell's Plain into Macassar. We're so grateful to God for his faithfulness and blessing in 2012 and we're utterly convinced that he's going to build on the foundations laid to raise up the church in Macassar for his glory!
2013 is going to be an amazing year at Tree Of Life!
What a great way to start 2013! We had a church braai this afternoon with everyone piling over to Dean & Paula's for some lekker kos and fellowship. Special thanks go to our dear friends who provided for the braai. Thank you!
2013 really is going to be a great year!
Happy New Year to you all. To see more photos click here.
We've been really blessed as a church this year and it's time to spread some of that blessing around so we'll be distributing these sixteen hampers to our family members and the HOPE Home Based Care Team in Chris Nissen Park on Thursday.
Tree Of Life would like to congratulate Graham & Audrey Manuel from Church of Love & Grace in Mitchell's Plain on the birth of their first grandchild, Blake Manuel. Congratulations too to the proud parents Timmy & Janine. We know that Blake will be one blessed boy as he grows up in a loving Christian home with a wonderful Oupa & Ouma. Bless you guys!
This morning we took our children to Helderberg Farm for a strawberry picking trip as a treat for Christmas and the end of year. Much fun was had by all and the ladies were pleased that only the punnets of strawberries were weighed at the end! We have a great group of children at Tree Of Life and we hope to do more for them next year but for now we just want to honour them! We must thank our friends at Hillsong too for blessing us with the transport and money to cover the trip and lunch for all. Hillsong Somerset West, you're an amazing blessing to Tree Of Life! Bless you.
