LCA Story of the Week:

Serving overseas as a missionary is something Pastor Murray Smith never thought he’d do. But then God’s call on our lives can often surprise – because that’s exactly what he and his wife Tracy are preparing for, after his call to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea’s Senior Flierl Seminary, near Finschhafen.

Operation Christmas Child:

The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world and together with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

It begins with a shoe box filled with gifts and can lead to gospel opportunities, discipleship opportunities, schools, water projects, health projects and the planting of new churches.

So thank you to the people who have packed boxes and also the people who have bought or made individual items for the boxes.

Another way in which you can still support Operation Christmas Child is by donating $10 to the cost of the transportation of the boxes.

Many people who pack boxes don’t include this cost so it is a great opportunity to contribute, particularly if you haven’t packed a box.

Please put your donation in an envelope marked “Christmas Boxes” and place it in the offering bag or loose cash can be placed in the donation box. Both the bag and box are on the table in the Narthex and donations can be given over the next few Sundays.

Kathy Berlin (Wed); Marlene Hohnke (Wed); William Becker (Thurs); Lorraine Patteson (Thurs); Earla Voght (Thurs); Lachlan Noller (Fri);

Prayers for the Week:

· For those in authority, such as Queen Elizabeth and her representatives; Prime Minister Scott Morrison and members of parliament; Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and state parliamentarians; and Mayor Paul McVeigh and local councillors; that it may not focus on itself as a ruling body but as a servant to the people

· For the Church, LCAQD; as it searches for God's will in the new millennium

· For the pastors Bishop John Henderson, District Bishop Mark Vainikka; Pastor Joel Pukallus and all pastors; and teachers of the word, that they may be faithful to the truth

· For the work of dialogue between churches, and thanks for agreement already reached

· For the people of God, that they may be renewed each day in their baptism

· For reformers in society and those who work for the changes that bring justice

· For all who are weighed down by guilt and sin, that they may be set free by the gospel

· For all who search for the truth, that God's Spirit may lead them to Christ
