    How to have everything you need (The Lack Nothing Life)

    How to have everything you need (The Lack Nothing Life)

    We often feel like we don’t have enough. “I don’t have enough time.” “I don’t have enough money.” “I don’t have enough friendship.” Despite the fact that we live in a culture with more than anyone has ever had, we feel like we’re missing out. One of the most famous poems in history, Psalm 23, presents us with a different way to live. Imagine going through life thinking, “I actually do have enough. I lack nothing!” It might seem impossible, but Psalm 23 invites you into a life with God where you lack nothing.



    This week we ended the livestream early for copyright reasons. You can join us in a reflection based on Psalm 23 after the message by following this link to the song “I Shall Not Want” by Audrey Assad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12NMGC5YjYY

    The mothering heart of God

    The mothering heart of God

    In the Bible we find examples and metaphors that refer to God with mothering characteristics. He nurtures, he protects, he guides and defends. Even Jesus referred to God as being ‘like a woman’ in his parable of the lost coin. Have you experienced the mothering heart of God?



    You can join us in-person next Sunday at 9.30am or 5.30pm, and connect with us anytime at www.thelakes.church

    What kind of church do you want to leave behind?

    One day you and I will leave The Lakes Church. Even if we die as part of our church we’re going to hand it over to others one day. What kind of church do we want it to be then?



    Are you prepared to make The Lakes Church better today for others tomorrow?



    Now is the time to put your hand up to serve on a team specifically in our night service from May 15. www.thelakes.church/team

    Hope of heaven (Easter Sunday 2022)

    We’re celebrating Easter weekend in-person and livestreamed online! If you’re in Cairns, come and join us as we remember Jesus’ death on the cross and celebrate his resurrection to new life. If you’re away or you’re isolating at home, you can watch our livestream of each service.



    Easter this year coincides with the end of our church reading the New Testament in 90 days. On Good Friday and Easter Sunday we’ll look at Easter through the lens of the last two chapters in the New Testament (Revelation 21 & 22).
