Sunday School and Bible Studies kick off for 2017
School’s back, Australia day’s over and so things are kicking off again for 2017. On Sunday (January 29) our Sunday morning children’s teaching program will start. This term the children will be learning from John’s gospel. Sunday School starts part way through the service—so our church family spends time hearing from God’s word and praying together first, before the children head down to the hall for their own teaching.

Trash ‘n’ Treasure - Update
A big thanks to everyone who supported our Trash ‘n’ Treasure sale on June 11. We had a great day, cooking up sausages and selling loads of ‘stuff’—collectables, bric-a-brac, clothing, plants, relishes…even a piano! The total amount raised during the sale was around $800, and as church we ‘rounded up’ the total to $1000. So we’ve been able to donate $500 each to Care Outreach and Community Action Gympie. In addition, we had loads of leftover items which have been donated to Little Haven, so they can sell the items and raise funds for their services in palliative care and cancer support services.
