NightChurch News 3 February

THIS SUNDAY: Dan Follent is leading the service as Paul Pallot brings us the final message in our series on the book of James. Jono Newmarch is organising the music team, Zach Moore and Phil Prior are on audio/data, and Lauren Morgan and Steph Ward are providing supper. Thanks everyone.

KEWMUNITY OF WOMEN: The girls’ gatherings will be held fortnightly this year, and every meeting will be run by a leader who can organise whatever they want to do. It could be that you’re passionate about volunteering and you want a group to volunteer at a soup kitchen, or you might want to run a Bible study, or even do a Zumba class! This will be a great time for people to share their gifts and learn about leadership skills. Laura Baker will be organising a roster, so please contact her if you’re interested in helping out.

FIVE IN FIVE: Five in Five encourages single people to pledge to go on five dates in five weeks, raising funds for charities that work to break the cycle of social disadvantage. A number of people from NightChurch are participating – you can help by sponsoring them, or if you are interested in signing up as well, you can register at the website: http://fiveinfive.org.au.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Karana is an aged care community in Kew and every Sunday morning they have a chapel service at 10.30am. We are looking for volunteers to help take residents from their rooms to the chapel on Sunday mornings. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to serve our wider community. If you are interested in helping out (either regularly or occasionally), please contact Laura Baker.

RES WORKING BEE: Saturday9 Februaryat the Res, starting with breakfast at 8.30am. A great opportunity to serve the Res community and also get to know the new managers Stephen & Anouchka Chatelier. For catering purposes, please contact the Chateliers if you will be at the breakfast.

PRAYER: Andrew Crawford, Roman Falls and Jacquie Johnson are heading to India on 2nd Feb. Roman and Jacquie will be there for almost 3 weeks and Andrew, for about 8 weeks. They will be volunteering in different ways at Mukti for the majority of the time, after doing some travel of India (if anyone is interested in checking out what Mukti do, the website is www.mukti.org.au). They will be travelling with a small group of young adults from Victoria. Please be in prayer for them.

LANSDOWN FAMILY: As a church community, we continue to pray for Dan Lansdown and his family at this difficult time. If you would like to offer financial support to the Lansdown family, you can transfer your gift into the church account – simply put ‘Lansdown gift’ in the transaction description.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Australian evangelist John Smith has a home page at www.bluespreacher.org. On his home page he has some articles, videos and podcasts where he talks about his views on issues that face people living in Australia and other countries as well.
