Holidays are here!
We’re delighted that you could join us today during this time of holidays. If you’re taking some time off with family and friends then be sure to give thanks to God for the joy (and sometimes challenges) of relationships, as we hope for Heaven!
Office arrangements during Summer Holidays
Valerie O’Regan, our new Personal Assistant (PA) to the Senior Minister, begins on 25th January. In the meantime, our other staff will be monitoring our church phone and emails.
Jodie and his family are now on leave until the 7th January. Graham Errington will be leading our parish during this time. You can contact him on 0430 043 765 or 4232 4914 or firstname.lastname@example.org
During the five Sundays after Christmas, we will be hearing from a range of local and guest preachers on a variety of topics, before we commence a new sermon series in Term One. Next Sunday we welcome Graham Errington as our preacher.
Dates for your 2016 Diary
Don’t forget to put aside 1st to 3rd April next year for our church Weekendaway! Also, start praying and planning for our Moore College Mission 15th to 22nd May.
Last Sunday to meet our financial deficit
Please pray that we will be able to close the gap on the shortfall in our budget before the end of the year.
Each week we need to receive $5,500 in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was $4,964, leaving a gap of $536.
Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $143,000. Compared to that total we received $121,915, leaving a gap of $21,085.
Electronic giving is a great way to give! It helps us prayerfully plan our giving, and then the bank will help us keep that commitment, even when we may be unable to attend.
