NightChurch News 10 June

REASON FOR GOD: Last Sunday we launched the Reason for God series, with Nicholas speaking on the topic “Is there only one way to God?” A few books on Jesus and other religions that might be helpful from Sunday night’s message:

  • Jesus Among Other Gods – Ravi Zacharias
  • A Spectator’s Guide to World Religions – John Dickson
  • Christianity at the Religious Roundtable – Timothy Tennent

(Try for cheap second-hand books).

Copies of Timothy Keller’s Reason for God are available for $10. Please email the church office ASAP to reserve your copy, as any leftovers will be sent back late this week.

THIS WEEK AT NIGHTCHURCH: We continue our Reason for God series with a John Ortberg DVD: “Is Christianity a Straitjacket?” Bec Paterson will lead the service, Corey Leslie is coordinating the music team, Zach Moore and James Hayes are on audio/data, The House will be providing supper, and Corey Leslie is the convener.


  • State Youth Games are on this weekend, June 8-11.
  • Lauren Morgan writes: “I’ve been invited to perform at a ‘café church’ event in Essendon this coming Sunday June 10. It’s at International Baptist Church (held at Buckley Park Secondary College, Cooper St, Essendon), service kicks off at 11am and I’ll be playing a half-hour set from 11-11.30am. Would love to see you there!”

CAMP LEADERS NEEDED: Southern Cross Kids’ Camps is a unique organisation designed to provide assistance to child victims of abuse, domestic violence and neglect. Programs are specifically planned to bring fun and laughter back into the lives of these children, to provide a time for them to forget about their “experiences” and just enjoy being a child again. Leaders/volunteers are needed for Southern Cross Kids’ Camp Yarra Ranges, July 8 – July 12. They need a few female leaders/buddies, a couple of photographers, and a nurse.
