Youth Ministry is starting up on the 23rd April, which is 1st week of Term 2.
Though, we know it is the Dalby Show weekend as well, we are just wanting to do a Welcome Night.
Starting at 6:30pm – 7:30pm, parents are welcome for the first night as we are having a sausage sizzle and games for the kids.
A way of everyone getting to know us and enjoy a wonderful evening.
The Gathering is a state-wide event for young adults that brings together people ages 18-30 (or turning 30 this year) from all over QLD to grow, be inspired and equipped to live in community and live faithfully in the way of Jesus. We want to rediscover who we are together and step boldly where God is leading us. A one day conference, 8 May 2021, Luther Heights Youth Camp, 9am-4.30pm. Price $60 (for 1st 30 registered, then $85).

DATE CLAIMER!!! - GROW MINISTRIES WORKSHOP:
Curious what all this “Grow” stuff is about? Every wondered how to share Jesus with others in the community???
Come along to our next Grow workshop on Saturday 17 April.
Dalby Lutheran Church hall. Arrive 8.30 for a 9 am start, Conclude 4pm
Please BYO snacks and lunch.
Tea and coffee will be provided (under our COVID morning tea plan)
Topic: Missional Faith Formation
During this workshop, we will look beyond the walls of our church buildings and seek to understand the people in our local communities. Who are the spiritual but not religious in our area? What about church refugees? And, why is it important to understand those we are trying to reach? We explore models and approaches for missional outreach and pathways for encountering Jesus.
The three parts to our day…
1. Why – Understanding the culture and challenges of our time
2. What does being Missional look like?
3. How do we explore the opportunities in our community to be missional? How do we go about it? What does it look like for us?
LCA Story of the Week
Being with people who are dying can be uncomfortable, daunting and sad. We might worry about saying or doing the wrong thing. But even those with years of experience ministering to people who are dying say that discomfort or anxiety may always be present as we confront our own mortality in the process.
