29 MAY – SUNDAY @9.30am
This Sunday is Reconciliation Sunday – the Sunday in Reconciliation Week that invites Christians to reflect on their journey of reconciliation with Australia’s First Peoples. As God’s people, we share communion together to remember what Jesus has done, and we seek to live that out in lives that are reconciled to God, to one another, and to all people. Reconciliation Sunday encourages us to consider how the journey of reconciliation is going, and to live out reconciliation in every part of our lives.
Mike Bullard will be bringing us his final message from 2 Samuel 21:1-14. This is an unusual story from David’s life. It highlights the profound effect that listening and mourning can have on the journey of reconciliation. Join us to explore and discover some insights about how wounds from the past can be resolved and blessing come into difficult places as people move through processes of reconciliation. What might a journey of reconciliation look like for each of us?
We have been so blessed to have Mike preach and support our staff in Craig’s absence, please take the time to acknowledge him on Sunday after the service! Craig will be back from leave next week and we look forward to hearing about his adventures 🙂
MEMBERS’ MEETING after the service!
Don’t forget our quarterly general meeting of members is on straight after the service this Sunday. If you are a registered member then please stay on for the meeting, as with numbers down due to illness we need as many members present as possible to meet our quorum for voting! All welcome.
*We can choose to be mask-free these days, but please also continue to follow good hygiene practices, and please don’t come to church if you are unwell. Covid is still amongst us and the cold and flu season is nearly upon us. We want to do our best to take care of each other and our community and this helps enormously.
Some time ago, Peter Claessens helped out with barbecuing at Parky and unfortunately ‘lost’ his Realtree camouflage mens’ apron. If you recall seeing it or maybe picked it up wondering who it belonged to, could you please let Peter know on 0448 163 858 or contact the church office.
