Mission Prayer

Our mission prayer this week is for Home Mission (Drop In)

Communities around our nation are being transformed by Home Mission through grants to churches and regions which facilitate church planting, the resourcing of local churches and enable churches to develop new and creative mission projects. In our local setting, we will be praying for Drop In this week.

Chance for Childhood - Thank you

Olive would like to thank all who have continued to give their small change to support Chance for Childhood. Just to let you know that she is still collecting and Sue Dickson is coordinating on her behalf, so keep the change coming. It is getting harder to raise money this way due to the increasingly cashless society so your efforts are much appreciated.
