FAN CLUB: Matt Hill is heading up the Food After NightChurch Club, and is looking for volunteers to organise a place to go for dinner after church on June 22 and 29. Please get in contact with him if you can organise dinner somewhere on one or both of those weeks.

KBC CHURCH FAMILY CAMP: We will be heading off to Camp Wilkin in Anglesea for our church family camp on the weekend of July 11-13. There will be no official program, just a chance to have some rest and relaxation and to get to know each other. More info and registration can be found here on our website: http://kewbaptist.org.au/kbc-church-family-camp/.

PRAYER: There is prayer at the back of the church at 5pm every Sunday. We’d love you to join with us in this important ministry!
