Lots of Ways to Get Involved

Browse through the areas of church life below to see how you and your family can grow together with our church community.

Children’s Church

At Patria Mossel Bay we provide ministry for children between the ages of 6 and 13.

We take great pleasure in partnering with parents to disciple their children to honour God and make discipels. Our goal is to help children encounter Jesus in a personal way so they will grow up with His teachings firmly implanted in their hearts.  It is our desire that the encouragement they receive here will be taken with them throughout their lives. We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment.

Our children ministry includes three main areas – Grade R to 2, Grade 3 to 5, and Grade 6 to 7. If you would like more information about our Children’s Ministry, please contact Ilze du Toit.

Youth

Tides is a dynamic and exciting part of Patria Mossel Bay that is geared for teenage girls. Our youth group can be described as an environment of great vibrancy and friendship of young people coming into contact with an awesome God! Our love for God and people is what brings us together.

It is our passion to see God’s Kingdom established in the lives of young people. We desire to see young people finding and living out their God given calling with excitement and enthusiasm. Tides gets together on Fridays at 7pm at our church premises.
Our relevant program encourages meeting new people, building friendships and learning about living an authentic Christian life.

If you would like more information about our youth ministry, please contact Ilze du Toit.

Young Adults

The Young Adults Ministry at Patria Mossel Bay is for anyone between the ages of 18 and 36. Each week we take the time to grow spiritually in an environment that is fun, faith-filled and uplifting. Jesus is at the centre of all we do. We aim to know Him more, imitate Him more and to share His love with people in our community.

Young Adults is a place where we commit to know God, know each other and do life together.

If you would like more information please email Corinne at corinne@enmb.org

Adults

We believe that we have a compelling mission to honour and make disciples and in the process reach the world with the incredible, unconditional love of God. We are a multi-generational, multi-ethnic church, striving to be a place where all people can experience the life changing power of Jesus Christ.

We hope that you decide to join us on a Sunday or visit a connect group. If you do, our heart’s desire is that you would be encouraged and strengthened by what you see, hear and experience.

In the meantime, peruse our site, listen to a podcast, or visit our Facebook page.

We look forward to seeing you at ENMB.

Tabitha Mercy Ministries

The Bible says “whatever you do to the least of these you do unto Me” (Matthew 25:40).  The joy that is experienced when people get clothes and shoes and food is overwhelming.

Abba Father is working in the lives of needy people so they can give Him the glory and thanks. And so, the gospel of Jesus is proclaimed.

We are in urgent need for: Non-perishable food, Canned food, Rise, Pasta, Porridge, Tea, Coffee, Milk, Sugar and Toiletries.

Connect Groups

Connect Groups are the lifeblood of our church and the best environment for people to love one another in a biblical community and to make and multiply disciples (see Matthew 28:18-20).

The New Testament repeatedly challenges and inspires the Church not only to meet together, but also to live in authentic community with one another. A Connect Group is a smaller group of people within our church that meets weekly. We believe the Connect Group is a comfortable environment to establish Biblical foundations, build authentic relationships, tackle the tough questions and challenges of life, and have the opportunity to live out the reality of the Christian life on a day-to-day basis. It is a great environment to be discipled, for growth and life change.

Membership

The Bible says that “those who are planted in the house of the Lord will flourish in the courts of the Lord” Psalm 92:13. Many people want to flourish and prosper, but they don’t want to be planted. We all need to make a decision to be planted in the house of the Lord and be committed to a church. Jesus says, “I will build my church”, and he invites you to be a part of that.

We believe that God’s primary way of advancing His Kingdom is through the local church. God has a purpose for our lives and has called us to walk with others in fulfilling that call. You do not become a member of a church by signing a piece of paper, but by coming into agreement, coming into fellowship, and expressing your agreement.

If you feel that Patria Mossel Bay is the church where you would like to commit, then please come along to the next Spiritual Family Training class. You will be able to find out more about who we are, meet some of the leaders, and ask any questions you may have. Our desire is to serve you, helping you fulfil the destiny to which God has called you. Please contact our church office to find out when the next Spiritual Family Training class will be presented.

Prayer

James 5:16: “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”  We acknowledge our complete dependence on the leading of the Holy Spirit in this ministry.

Our main objective is to come into our Father’s presence and to stand in unity as watchmen on the wall.  We know that He hears and answers all our prayers. We have been given the power and authority to stand victorious against the schemes and plans of the enemy in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ through the finished work of the cross.

We identify the needs of the brethren and pray the Word of our Lord Jesus Christ over each situation. It is important to keep all the ministries, leaders and members of our congregation under the cover of prayer. We pray God’s will, His promises as revealed in the Scripture through the Holy Spirit. His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

May every believer realise the privilege of this intimate ministry and become part of it.  Let us keep the fire of prayer burning!

Missions

At Patria Mossel Bay, we believe that we are called to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our neighbors, our community and around the world, as directed in Matthew 28:18-20:

“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Counseling

Here at Patria Mossel Bay we are passionate about discipleship and we believe that inner restoration and healing is an important part of that process. We want to go on a journey with believers to help them come to a place where they find wholeness through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We have a team of counselors who are ready and able to facilitate that process.

Please contact us for more information.
