THIS WEEK @ NIGHTCHURCH: We will be starting our new series on the book of Daniel, with Nicholas Tuohy preaching on ‘Countercultural: The Power of Resistance’. We will also share in communion together. Grace W is leading the service, Lauren Morgan is organising the music team, Zach Moore and James Crawford are on audio/data, Caitlyn Pryse will lead in prayer, Bree Monahan and Sarah Powys will be providing supper, and Rachel Bakker is convening. Thanks everyone.
- ‘Heart of Worship’ Seminar: Thursday 21 May, 7:30pm in the hall. We will be exploring biblical theology behind worship, practical and technical aspects of church music leadership, and how we can overall grow in our understanding and leadership of worship. If you’re involved in our music ministry, or interested in learning more about worship generally, this is the event for you! facebook.com/events/933610520040228
- Quarterly Church Gathering: Sunday 31 May in the hall. One of the really great things about being a Baptist Church is that we value participation and inclusion from everyone in the church on what we believe God is saying to us and where God is leading us. The 10am service will be held in the hall, with our worship, prayer and sharing to flow into our Gathering and morning tea. We will finish by 12:15pm. Please plan to be there!
- Men’s Muster Camp: May 29-31, Burnside Camp in Anglesea. A great opportunity to be inspired by speakers, fellowship over brilliant meals, enjoy the amazing countryside and pursue some outdoor adventure activities. Cost: $125. For more info, see thecampingprogram.org.au.
