For many of us, it’s nearly three months since we’ve worn our bright green ‘Get Real’ T-shirts. But that’s going to change this weekend!
After our church service on Sunday morning 30th June, we’re going to head out as a sea of green to put brochures and fridge magnets in as many of the 3,500 letterboxes in Oak Flats as we can.
If you normally come at night to our 5pm church, then join us at around 11am as we head out. After the letterbox drop, we’re all heading back to the church for a BBQ lunch. Yum.
Come along with your green shirt if you’ve got one, or buy or borrow one from us on Sunday.
In many ways, it’s a fairly impersonal, low-impact kind of way of connecting with our community… but certainly every bit of publicity for our church will make a difference.
Let’s pray that some people will be motivated to join us at church next Sunday after receiving these brochures, and that through this, more people might come to know the Lord Jesus.
It was a great delight to meet with our seniors for our quarterly SAS (St Andrew’s Seniors) lunch and service on Friday.
Here are comments from those who joined us: “It’s been many years since being at communion because of being aged. Thank you!”; “Very nice to hear the old hymns”; “The looks on the faces told the story… everyone loved it!”
I am passionate about providing the best possible ministry to our older brothers and sisters, as we seek to grow them in the Lord and to reach out to their friends who do not attend regularly with us.
Please pray for this ministry, and if you’re keen to help us take our seniors’ ministry from good to great, then join us this Saturday morning for the Seniors’ Task Force meeting.
It is with sadness that I let you know that our dear brother, Gordon Orange, passed away peacefully on Monday night.
Gordon has been a member of our church for more than 40 years, and has been the source of great encouragement to us for all those years.
It is sad for us that our brother has passed away from us… but we also have a deep sense of joy, knowing with confidence that he is with our Father in Heaven, free from pain, and released from the sufferings of this life.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Gordon’s funeral service to be held at our church on Monday at 11:00am.
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants.” (Psalm 116:15)
I’m delighted to announce that I’ve accepted the invitation to be the Chaplaincy Team Leader at Warrigal Care.
My role will be to support the team of volunteer chaplains who devote themselves to caring for the residents of the Warrigal Care facilities around the Illawarra.
As our church seeks to grow our ministry to seniors in our church and in our community, this opens up many opportunities which I look forward to exploring at our upcoming Seniors Ministry Meeting on 29th June.
Please pray for me as I seek to encourage and support the chaplains, and pray that God will give us more opportunities to minister the word of God to seniors living in Warrigal Care and throughout the Shellharbour region.
