Brrr. This Sunday was so cold. And yet, we more than filled the building. Such excitement to be in the house of the LORD. Hopefully we will see you?
As we’ve gone through the book of Haggai what’s stood out for you? I’d love feedback. Here’s links to the previous sermons in this series: 1:1-15, 2:1-9, 2:10-19.
Here’s our weekly round-up. It’s jammed packed with what’s going on at Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni. Be praying for your church as we strive to glorify God, together, proclaiming His Word, in Benoni.

One service at 9:30am this Sunday

We will have only one service at 9:30am this Sunday (22 August 2021). We really are looking forward to seeing you. It’s such an encouragement to have friends-like-family back in the building. And honestly, your soul needs it too.
This is important: You can come to church without registering. But registering secures your seat. 50 of the available seats this Sunday are in the main hall. And 50 of the available seats are outdoors or in the fellowship hall. On the day seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
We’ve tried to simplify the registration process (it’s now as easy as pie). Click here to book a spot at the 9:30am service this Sunday. Or contact the church office on WhatsApp (+27 87 700 5319).

Cleanse out the old leaven

In recent times, we’ve all been very concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. But we should be even more concerned about the spread of sin. The Bible likens sin to leaven that spreads. Just a little bit of leaven has the potential to spoil a whole batch of dough. Let’s consider this eternal truth so that we can apply it both corporately and individually.
