Welcome the Furus family!
The Service of Induction for Calix Furus to the Pastorate at Rehoboth is planned for Saturday 6th February at 2.30pm. and will be held at Brighton Road Baptist Church(by kind permission).
Because of Calix’s association with Outreach UK, the Charge to the Pastor will be brought by Trevor Dickerson (National Field Director, OUK), while greetings and commendation from Copse Road Chapel, Clevedon, where Calix has been assistant Pastor, will be brought by their Pastor Sukesh Pabari.
The Charge to the church (i.e. all of us at Rehoboth) will be brought by our friend, Paul Reed. Refreshments will be provided afterwards in the church hall. Please pray for that occasion that we will know the blessing of the God who is doing a new thing!
Theme Verse for 2016
The Lord Says:
I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun!
Do you not see it?
Isaiah 43 vs 19
You may be wondering why the Church, located at the end of a late Victorian street has such an unusual name. Unusual it may be, but in the Bible we find mention of it very early on in the Old Testament, where Isaac ordered a well to be dug for water after various disputes had taken place over the rights of the wandering Israelites to draw water from other peoples wells. They dug a new well and no one complained about it, and so they named it Rehoboth which means “the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land” (Gen 26 v 22).
Our church may not be very big but we like to think there is room for everyone who comes along and that those who do will have no cause to complain!
