It’s great to share with you at church today. Please make yourself known to our staff & ushers if you are visiting so we can warmly welcome you.
Thank God for our Children’s and Family Ministries
Thank God for much answered prayer . Bec Wallace has settled in well in her 5 month role as Children’s Pastor. Please keep praying for her, Craig and our teams.
The Pupil Free day on Monday 14th July had 41 children and 19 helpers. You’ll remember we were praying for 40 kids! This is up 50% on our numbers at the first event. We had many new contacts and all got invited to Dropzone and the Date Night on 15th August as well as receiving Jesus Brings Quizworks DVD. It was a smooth running day with a call to respond to Jesus’ act of true love.
Scripture has 8 new teachers from our congregations join us in this ministry this year. We have three teachers away this term leaving a gap of 7 classes to fill, but as of Wednesday 16th July all the classes will be covered, by some clever shuffling and Bec Wallace picking up two classes on Thursday at Gymea Bay Public School.
Dropzone has had some good training opportunities so far this year. Kirralie Wallace ran some discipline training with some resources gleaned from her new job at Thomas Hassell Anglican College. This was well received, especially as we have 6 teenage helpers.
930 KidzChurch has had new families join in term 2 which is a wonderful answer to our prayers for this! We are planning 2 family lunches soon so that the families from 930 can meet up and get to know each other better. It’s also been great to see the Brekkie Club teenagers joining us for morning tea in the hall. Thanks Evan, Yolande and Andy.
Arvo Church Kidzchurch has a growing ministry team with 3 staff, and 2 or 3 volunteers.
Playtime Group has continued to grow dramatically this year, averaging 70 people each week and peaking at 102 on the last day of term with the petting farm. We have 2 staff and 5 helpers and would love some more helpers for this vital ministry.
Please pray for:
- Date night 15th August
- Xtreme Camp in September.
- For playtime mums to connect with Church mums & other ministries.
- More relief SRE teachers.
- Bec Wallace settling in as she replaces Olivia on maternity leave.
E.S.L Ministry Commences soon at Gymea
E.S.L ministry will recommence at Gymea after many years, under the leadership of Rob and Chris Leong. A dedicated team of volunteers has trained in this ministry and will commence in term 4. Please pray for this and for the new members of our wider community who this ministry will serve in the loving name of our Lord Jesus.
Your brother in Christ , Graham Crew
