Got a green thumb?
The good news is that it doesn’t matter whether you’re gifted or challenged in horticulture, you can still help us keep our gardens and lawns looking nice. We’re looking for a few people to help with lawn mowing and gardening for a few hours every few months. Can you help?
Petition against Abortion
There is an extreme abortion Bill currently before the NSW Parliament. If passed, this legislation would be one of the worst abortion laws in the world. You are encouraged to sign a petition at our Welcome Desk to request that the Legislative Council oppose this bill.
We now have a new integration with Elvanto called ChurchBot. ChurchBot provides a way to find out about what’s happening in our church using Facebook Messenger. You will be able to “chat” to ChurchBot to access the Elvanto system, and you can RECEIVE reminders of volunteering, TAP to easily find out about your upcoming rosters, and ASK questions like “When am I on roster next month”. How great is that? For more information see the Facebook group or Valerie.
Each week we need to receive $5,000 in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was $4,745, leaving a gap of $255.
Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received $235,000. Compared to that total we received $206,833, leaving a gap of $28,167.
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.
