“Big enough to impact – small enough to care”
The vision for Pakenham Christian Church is to be a large and influential Church in Cardinia and beyond, but also “small enough” to reach individual needs through the ministry of the body of Christ.
Our desire is to make an IMPACT WITH JESUS upon our families, our community, our town, our city, the nation and the world (Acts 1:8). The vision of Pakenham Christian Church is to impact our community. We impact by preaching Christ and growing people (1 Corinthians 1:18).
Acts 2:46-47 “So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved”.
Life Groups consist of Geographical Neighbourhood Groups and Special Interest Groups. It is our vision to encourage the Church in being involved in the Life Group Ministry. We currently have 6 Life Groups in Pakenham Christian Church:
Life Group 1: KYB (Know Your Bible) Ladies Bible Study. Every Tuesday morning, 10.30-12pm. Leader: Julie Strother
Life Group 2: Tuesday Weekly Life group, 7.30pm. Leader: Rich Paton
Life Group 3: Wednesday Weekly Life Group, 7:30pm. Leader: Stan Strother
Life Group 4: Art Group (Special Interest Group) Every first and third Thursday, 1:00pm-3:00pm. Leader: Pam Buchanan
Life Group 5: Young Adults Life Group (17-30yrs), every Wednesday at 7pm. Leaders: Mary Mills & Mitchell Lowe
Life group 6: Prayer Life Group, every second and fourth Thursday, 7:30pm. Leader: Trevor Thomas
Please contact Pastor Carl if your require more information.
Pakenham Christian Church also has two evangelism ministries that run during the year:
Main Street Evangelism Ministry: On the second Tuesday of each month, 10.15am. Leader: Stan Strother
Pakenham Christian Singers meets at 10.30am on the last Monday of every month at the Ron Andrews Nursing Home. Leader: Debbie Finn
The vision of the Life group network in Cardinia is to be inwardly working to meet the needs within the Church, but also outwardly evangelising the community. The early Church recognized that it was not able to accommodate for and meet the needs of the growing Church in the temple alone. The needs of our growing Church cannot only be met in the church auditorium on a Sunday. Life Groups are not only a Biblical concept but also a necessary step in our Church’s growth.
Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.”
Numbers 13:30 “…We shall go up and take possession of the land for we can certainly do it.”
