16th June 2024 - Fourth Sunday After Pentecost

Together Sharing Christ’s Love

 

Welcome to:

Redeemer, Macalister

St Mark’s, Dalby

 

Liturgical Colour: Green

The Sundays after Pentecost (known as the "non-festival" season of the church year) are the Sundays in which we concentrate on the growth of the church.

They begin with Trinity Sunday, and ends with "Christ the King" Sunday, where we focus on the end times, and the second coming of our Lord Jesus.

The Gospel lessons for this season concentrate on the teaching and ministry of Jesus.  The Old Testament and Epistle lessons have a semi-continuous narrative, with the Revised Common Lectionary (which we customarily use) giving two options for the Old Testament lessons, either the stories of the Patriarchs through Genesis and Exodus, or the Prophets.

The liturgical colour for the Sundays after Pentecost (which comprises roughly half of the church year) is green, as this symbolises new life and growth.

Nominations Committee:

The Nominations Committee are looking for 2 extra committee members - we are asking for people who aren’t already on a Committee.

Please talk to James Kessler or Chris Kowald if you are interested or have questions about what’s involved.

 

 

Anti Discrimination Bill

A resolution was passed at Synod to encourage us to be a Gospel presence in the World.  The Queensland Government have released a draft Anti Discrimination Bill, that would be the most restrictive regime in Australia for religious freedoms. It would significantly restrict the ability of churches, schools and other faith organisations to choose who we employ, as well as introducing other harsh restrictions.

The most important thing you can do is to write to your local MP and tell them you are concerned about the bill – a template has been emailed out and paper copy available.


Christian Life Week:

There are a number of CLW and Winter Kids Camps coming up.  These Camps are  fantastic opportunities for Leaders and Children alike to spend time learning about God, making friends and having fun!

*We would greatly appreciate any donations towards the cost of “CLW”

- please note on your Offering or EFT – Thank You*


Dalby Churches Together:

Churches Together Dinner @ Uniting Church Hall on 26th June 2024 – 6pm for 6:30pm start – Guest Speaker is Nerilee Sowter.


ALWS Refugee Settlement Initiative

ALWS is partnering with the Australian Government’s delegated immigration settlement response pilot - the Community Refugee Integration and Settlement Pilot (CRISP), and we are currently on the scope for community groups that might be interested in walking this journey with us.  Your congregation has been identified to us by the LCAQD as a church that might be open to welcoming a refugee as part of your church mission/reach initiatives.  This refugee resettlement program would entail a small community group (of 5-10 key, time-rich people) being responsible for the refugee/refugee family feeling at home in your area.  If you are interested, please let a Member of the TEAM Committee know or St Mark’s Office. 


Happy Birthday this week to:

Gail Bartsch (Tue); Charlie Brauer (Tue); Daniel Glasby (Wed); Max Boshammer (Wed);


Baptism Anniversaries:

Audrey Fresser; Alex Kruger


If we missed your birthday or baptism anniversary, please contact St Mark's Church Office


Prayer Points for the Week:

  • for the church, that God would make it grow like seed in the ground in his own time, and bring a rich harvest

  • that the church would hear and proclaim Christ's teachings about the kingdom of God

  • that Christians would live their lives in faith and confidence, ruled by the love of Christ

  • that all those in need and despair would know the love of Christ, who died for all.
