This is our weekly round up. The intention is to communicate everything in one place. I hope it’s useful?
WHY BECOME A MEMBER?
The pattern of the early church recorded in Acts 2:41 was believe, be baptised, be added. Membership at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni is the way we describe the adding. We want to disciple you in the context of membership at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni. Here is a great resource about church membership: https://tinyurl.com/wvtj2dnu.

WHY COME TO THE 10:30 am SUNDAY SERVICE?
Reaching Benoni and beyond with the message of the Gospel is our mission. But our 8:30 am service is full. Please consider coming to the 10:30 am service so that we have space to host visitors at the 8:30 am service.
WHY PREREGISTER FOR THIS SUNDAY’S SERVICE?
We’re working as hard as we can to ensure that we have safe spaces at our Sunday services. Last week 45 people preregistered for the Sunday service. Well done. And thank you. This week I’m hoping we have even more.

WHY STUDY GOD’S WORD?
Because Christianity was never intended to be a spectator sport. Small group Bible study is not just valuable, it is invaluable. Small group study is so effective that Jesus used it to train the men (Luke 6:12–16; Mark 4:34).
Connect with a small group (Young Adults, Benoni, Ladies, Men, Youth, Sunday School): https://tinyurl.com/5he86px2.
You can attend some of our Bible studies on Zoom. Find a list here: https://tinyurl.com/ss83hh9m.
HOW TO GIVE
Giving is a familiar theme throughout Scripture. Our giving is a tremendous privilege, not a heavy burden. It should be anonymous, cheerful and sacrificial in nature. You can give via our website: https://tinyurl.com/v9buksyk. Or drop a donation in the white box at the back of the church on Sundays.
Our EFT details are: Bank: Standard Bank, Account: Crystal Park Baptist Church, Number: 021 103 100, Branch: Benoni, Code: 013 042.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Did you know, we feed 40+ school children every day at a local school? We also need a church secretary. Would you like to get involved in either of these ministries? Contact the church office (+27 87 700 5319). Find other ministries to get involved with here: https://tinyurl.com/2y6e4xn2.
HOW TO SUBMIT A PRAYER REQUEST?
Need prayer? Please tell us. Want to make us aware of a praise item? Please share with us. Contact the church office (+27 87 700 5319) or fill in this form: https://tinyurl.com/j5zxmd.
LET’S BEAT THE THIRD WAVE
The Covid-19 protocols we have put in place include: 1.) Sanitise at the door. 2.) Wear a mask while on the church property. And 3.) exercise appropriate social distancing. Read our Covid-19 plan here: https://tinyurl.com/rzsf8u74.
Until we get over the third wave: 1.) We will not serve tea and coffee between services. 2.) We will not have Sunday School. 3.) We will limit the preregistration of our services to 80.
Disciple, and be discipled. Add 1.) Prayer and 2.) Purpose to your relationships. By prayer I mean, share prayer requests and praise items with one another. By purpose I mean, study a part of God’s Word together. Looking for material to use? Or looking for someone who can begin the process with you? Contact the church office (+27 87 700 5319). We’ll help you.

Yours in Christ,
