- Who we are
- What we do
It’s now a full school term since we started the Oak Flats High School ‘JOLT’ lunchtime group, and we’re delighted to report that it’s off to a terrific start.
Each Friday lunch we have around a dozen or so students from (mainly) Year Seven, who gather around a large pile of hot chips, lovingly supplied by Mandy.
We spend lots of time eating and talking, but we also share prayer points and even take turns praying for each other and for the school.
It’s a great way to complement the hour-long Scripture lessons I teach each fortnight to the students of Year Seven, especially as we strengthen relationships.
Please pray that the students who don’t yet know Jesus will come to follow him, and pray that the students who already follow Jesus will serve him with boldness and perseverance.
A few weeks ago I read a ‘tweet’ from a ministry friend in which he described his church weekendaway as their ‘annual holiday.’
It’s funny, but even after a lifetime of going on camps, houseparties and church retreats, I can’t ever remember hearing this title used for these residential events.
But I love the name, because it brings all of the warmth and positive feelings of a holiday to the experience of spending a weekend away together with our brothers and sisters from church.
Our weekendaway is a time when we pray that God will grow us in our love for each other and for him as we gather around Christ, present among us by his Spirit as he is clothed in the promises of his Word.
Whatever you do, don’t miss our annual church holiday… and remember, if money is a problem, we’ll have you covered!
