LCA Story of the Week:

It’s hard to go past a friendly smile greeting you before Sunday worship, or that warm cup of tea or coffee after service. Isn’t that what makes our faith communities welcoming? For many years, among the hundreds of folks who volunteer to ensure a warm welcome and hot cuppa for worshippers has been nonagenarian couple Grace and Les Dodt.

LCA Missionary Time-Line:

This timeline is a thank you and acknowledgement to the people from Lutheran Churches in Australia who served in mission overseas. The countless stories tell of the joys of serving and the many blessings our overseas brothers and sisters gave to us. The timeline is a work in progress. Contact LCA International Mission if you would like to contribute.

Young Adults home group:

Who: young adults aged 17 (finished high school) -30ish

What: dinner, discipleship, fellowship

When: Every Tuesday night @6:30pm

Where: various locations across Dalby

Why: "To provide a safe and Godly community giving the chance to provide authentic fellowship and deep conversations, with the bonus of food"

Acts 2:42 [NIV] - They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

We would love it if our hosts could commit to hosting us approximately once every month/two months. This involves having us to their house and making dinner for the group. The use of a tv is bonus 👍🏻 We will organise our own study, and they are welcome to join in if they like- we always appreciate the wisdom our older congregation members have to offer. Special thanks to those who have already graciously hosted us: Megan James, Kaylene & Murray, Barb & Keith, Des & Val, Jamie & Mezzie. We really appreciate it! Thank you!! If you wish to host the Young Adult group, please contact Nadine!


C.H.A.O.S:

With C.H.A.O.S youth ministry booming this last term, we are looking for people to join the ‘Youth Support Team’ (Y.S.T.) that will come to a youth night once a Term (possibly one or two adults per night).
