LCA Story of the Week
With ALWS Walk My Way community events cancelled due to COVID-19, four Year 11 students from Concordia College in suburban Adelaide thought creatively about raising funds to support the education of children in refugee camps. Motivated by God’s love, they raised enough to help 143 children to go to school.
Every week St Mark's shares a wonderful resource for families to use at home called "Faith at Home" offering devotion and activity ideas in a one-page summary - great for busy families to use. Check out Faith@Home here>>
Budget & Elections meeting has been tentatively set for the weekend of 28th/29th Nov.
