NightChurch News 19 August

THIS SUNDAY: Mel Hill is leading the service and Andy Mitchell will be speaking on ‘Holy Spirit in the Early Church’. We will also share in communion together. Katie Adams is organising the music team, Em Fox will lead in prayer, Zach Moore and Phil Prior are on audio/data, Lauren Morgan and Steph Ward are providing supper, and Laura Holley is convening. Thanks everyone.

THIS WEEK OUR SERVICE WILL START AT 7PM: You’ve probably noticed that our services often don’t start until 7.10pm or later. We value the laid back informal atmosphere of NightChurch but we also want to honour our word and start at 7pm. By starting at 7pm we are respecting the preparation that has gone into the service as a whole and we are better accommodating both visitors (who come early), and workers and young families (who can’t stay too late). So make sure you come at 7pm this week – you never know what you might miss!

ANNOUNCEMENTS: If you would like to make an announcement at NightChurch, simply get in touch with the service leader to give them a heads up before the start of the service. So for this week, contact Mel Hill.

CHANGES TO EMAIL: As many of the same people are on both the weekly prayer and bulletin email lists, we are now combining these into one email which is sent out on Thursdays. We are also starting a new “Prayer Alert” email list for sending out more immediate requests that come in from people. If you would like to receive these alerts, or if you would like to opt out of the weekly bulletin/prayer email, please advise the church office (info@kewbaptist.net.au).

HOSPITALITY LUNCHES will be held on Sunday 9 September, so we’d love 15-18 people or couples to offer to host a lunch, in their home, or even in a park or restaurant.  Everyone will be invited to attend and contribute to one of these lunches. This is a great way to get to know others at KBC.  If you can host a group, contact Deirdre Willis or Laura Holley. Please also let us know if you will be away or unable to take part.

AUDIO/DATA TEAM is looking to recruit more members! If you want to get involved with the tech side of NightChurch, please speak to Phil Prior or Amy Williams.

HOLY SPIRIT SERIES: Copies of ‘Forgotten God’ by Francis Chan and ‘Discovering the Holy Spirit in the New Testament’ by Keith Warrington are available from the church for just $10 and $5 respectively. Grab your copies this Sunday night!

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: This week I thought I’d feature an article about Microsoft Office 2013 which is currently at the preview/beta test stage. There are some significant changes in this upcoming version of Office. Read the article Microsoft Office 2013 preview: details, screenshots and impressions at http://tinyurl.com/7d6nft4.
