Maleny Presbyterian Church Mission

The Mission

*Worshipping*

Worshipping God is a life of obedience and calling. This worship is expressed in a corporate sense as we meet together under God’s word and lift our hearts and voices in praise as well as within our families and personally. The Maleny Presbyterian Church ministry seeks to be a joyful worshipping community. Prayer, praise, unity and fellowship are at the heart of our worshipping Hinterland community.

The Mission

*Teaching*

The teaching of God’s word is at the heart of Maleny Presbyterian Church ministry both formally and informally. A practical, challenging, biblical teaching ministry is a cornerstone of this church and sits deep in our Reformed heritage. Small groups, seminars and conferences will challenge us to grow in our understanding of God and His word.

The Mission

*Reaching*

Jesus came to seek and save the lost and at the Maleny Presbyterian Church we aim to be a church that reaches out. We hope to be the sort of church that Christians will be excited about bringing their friends to, and where many will discover their faith for the first time. But we shall not wait for the lost to come to us…but rather go out into the world and make disciples where they are.

The Mission

*Caring*

A church is called to be a caring community. We become the church God has called us to be through building networks of fellowship & support with and for each other, by caring for one another in practical ways, and in reaching out to a needy world to provide the care and love of Jesus.

IMPORTANT NEWS...
The Session of Elders met to discuss the rapid rate at which the government is ramping up policies of containment for Covid-19 Virus. Physical separation is the key to flattening out the timeline of virus exposure and so with this in mind, the Session of Elders are cancelling all activities of the Maleny Presbyterian Church for the foreseeable future…resumption of which to be reviewed at a later date.
 
This means that Sunday services
will be cancelled in the Church Hall until further notice.
…so don’t bother showing up.
 
 
We will set up worship services for each Sunday and post live services on FaceBook at 9:00 am each Sabbath Day. I will also seek to post it on our FaceBook page for you to view in total. The sermon will be included, but will also be in its usual place in the Sermons area on this website. We encourage you to tune in and join us…and yes even sing the songs we find for you. Take notes on the sermon and let the Spirit of God feed your soul. Plan to be online.

Scripture used for tonight’s Bible Study
Luke 2:52
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
Prov. 2:1
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Prov. 2:9
Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
Prov. 2:20
Thus you will walk in the ways of the good
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
Prov. 3:13
Blessed are those who find wisdom,
those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
those who hold her fast will be blessed.
19 By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations,
by understanding he set the heavens in place;
20 by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
and the clouds let drop the dew.
21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,
an ornament to grace your neck.
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,
and your foot will not stumble.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
25 Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
26 for the LORD will be at your side
and will keep your foot from being snared.
Prov. 8:12
“I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
I possess knowledge and discretion.
13 To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
I have insight, I have power.
15 By me kings reign
and rulers issue decrees that are just;
16 by me princes govern,
and nobles—all who rule on earth.
17 I love those who love me,
and those who seek me find me.
18 With me are riches and honor,
enduring wealth and prosperity.
19 My fruit is better than fine gold;
what I yield surpasses choice silver.
20 I walk in the way of righteousness,
along the paths of justice,
21 bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me
and making their treasuries full.
22 “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
23 I was formed long ages ago,
at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
24 When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
when there were no springs overflowing with water;
25 before the mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
26 before he made the world or its fields
or any of the dust of the earth.
27 I was there when he set the heavens in place,
when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28 when he established the clouds above
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29 when he gave the sea its boundary
so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30 Then I was constantly at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
31 rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in mankind.
John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
Col. 1:15
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Prov. 8:32
“Now then, my children, listen to me;
blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
do not disregard it.
34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
watching daily at my doors,
waiting at my doorway.
35 For those who find me find life
and receive favor from the LORD.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
all who hate me love death.”
Prov. 1:20
Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
21 on top of the wall she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech:
22 “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
23 Repent at my rebuke!
Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you my teachings.
24 But since you refuse to listen when I call
and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand,
25 since you disregard all my advice
and do not accept my rebuke,
26 I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;
I will mock when calamity overtakes you—
27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,
when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
Prov. 9:13
Folly is an unruly woman;
she is simple and knows nothing.
14 She sits at the door of her house,
on a seat at the highest point of the city,
15 calling out to those who pass by,
who go straight on their way,
16 “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
To those who have no sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet;
food eaten in secret is delicious!”
18 But little do they know that the dead are there,
that her guests are deep in the realm of the dead.
2Pet. 2:1
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
2Pet. 2:12
But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish.
2Pet. 2:13
They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you. 14 With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed—an accursed brood!
2Pet. 2:18
For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error.
Prov. 4:7
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
8 Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
embrace her, and she will honor you.
9 She will give you a garland to grace your head
and present you with a glorious crown.”

Normally...

Our Sunday morning services start at 9:00 a.m. as we worship together with the Creator of the universe in the Spirit of his Christ.  

Afterward, we stick around for a cuppa and some food.  Join us!  

While many of our parents prefer to keep their children in the Service of Worship,
if given notice we can cater for a Sunday School for school-age kids if needed...
during the service with adults who are holding an approved Blue Card for Child Safe.
