23rd June 2024 - Fifth 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 Chris Kowald if you are interested or have questions about what’s involved.

 

Anti Discrimination Bill

The Queensland Government have released a draft Anti Discrimination Bill, that would be the most restrictive regime in Australia for religious freedoms.  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 is available.***


Christian Life Week:

There are a number of CLW and Winter Kids Camps starting next week – please include the Leaders and Campers in your prayers.  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.


Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child:

Time to start thinking about filling a shoebox again or maybe you have some items you can donate or are happy to contribute to the cost of postage?

Shoeboxes to be dropped off at 101 Pratten Street before 6th October.



ALWS Refugee Settlement Initiative:

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:

Paul Schreiber (Sun); Jacinta Hensel (Sun); Wayne Horrigan (Tue); Doug von Pein (Wed); August Hensel (Thu); Elijah Kavney (Thu);


Baptism Anniversaries:

Joy Toomey; Joshua Kavney;


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


Prayer Points for the Week:

  • for the church, that it may grow in faith and know that God has a plan for eternity;

  • for the environment and the stewardship of it by those in governments throughout the world and that abuses of the environment might be exposed and brought to an end;
