It’s great to share with you in at church today. Please make yourself known to our staff & ushers if you are visiting so we can warmly welcome you.
Workshop on the book of Romans
On Saturday 21st June Dr Peter Orr from Moore College will lead us through an overview of the book of Romans. Peter will share with us his insights into Romans which will be our LIFE group study and sermon focus for Term 3. We’re meeting at the Crews at 8.30am to 10.30am - you can just turn up on the day but we’d appreciate you letting us know for catering. This is for all LIFE group leaders, ministry leaders and interested members. 8.30am for LIFE group leaders, 9am for all others. Free Bible study notes are available from GoThereFor.com website.
You can play a part in finishing the task!
Over the past 5 1/2 years our members have halved our mortgage of $800,000. We are seeking to reduce it this year by another $70,000. To do this our “Annual June Appeal” target is $20,000. All donations large and small are appreciated.
Men’s Breakfasts – a great chance for men to support men in our love for Jesus
George Milton leads a team of dedicated men who provide our breakfast on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays every month in school term. They welcome all our men to join them for fellowship, food, bible teaching and mutual encouragement.
Daily Bible Reading Help
Do you have a method of reading the Bible daily? Would you like some help and support? Various methods are available and used by our members. The GoThereFor.com website has personal bible reading notes to download free— our church has purchased this for all our members this year. See staff for your login code. Robert McCheyne’s yearly bible reading card is free on our foyer stand. Don Carson’s yearly guide “For the Love of God” has been used by many of our members.
These are core to our life and growth as a church. They are the key to our pastoral care and Christian Education. I want to encourage all our members to be part of one. New groups are starting all the time and existing groups are keen for new members.
Hope Beyond Cure for cancer sufferers
Dave McDonald had led the growing and important Crossways church in Canberra for two decades when was diagnosed with inoperable and incurable lung cancer. “Hope Beyond Cure” is his very honest story of his journey. 2 years later he is still with us … just. I found it a moving, uplifting, challenging book. This is a book I can pass on to those with cancer or those caring for sufferers. But it’s not for everyone. Read it prayerfully first and see if it’s one that will help you in caring for those you love.
Your brother and pastor, Graham Crew
