Bill recently shared in his sermon on Navigating Life in a Troubled World - he spoke on the 'Ponder Signpost'.
Philippians (NIV) 4:8
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things”
So in this light, we encourage you to 'ponder, contemplate, consider' prayerfully the people who have been faithfully serving on Governing Council and give thanks to God for completing their term of office, to those people who God has in mind to step into the vacancies that Governing Council now have.
Information will be forwarded through email so that you will be kept fully informed.
We will send out the link tomorrow for you to be able to connect into the MCC Prayer Night.
So Watch This Space!
We continue to pray for the people who are having to daily deal with COVID. We ask for Your hand to be over the researches and testers of the vaccines. Lord God we ask for your healing, and grace for these people.
Loving Father, we thank You that You know every decision we need to make and every challenge we face. Please forgive us for the times that we try to figure out life on our own. We recognise that we need You. We need Your Holy Spirit to give us strength, wisdom and direction.
Lord, in our happy moments we praise You.
In our difficult moments, we seek You.
In our quiet moments, we worship You.
In our painful moments, we trust You.

Why Safe Water?
When a community receives access to safe water, it literally changes lives and transforms the community. 1 in 10 people worldwide don't have clean water close to home. This has huge negative impacts. A lot of illnesses are caused by unsafe water, and poor sanitation and hygiene. People, mainly women and children, are forced to walk, sometimes up to 10-15km to collect water, that is sometimes still unsafe. Because of this, kids miss millions of school days, and time and energy is spent that could be invested back in peoples livelihoods, families and communities
Let's make a difference together
You can make an impact and join a whole community making a difference right now! It's simple – commit to drinking only water, all September. Then raise money to give safe water to someone in need. Every person deserves safe water – let's do something about it!
Marion Church of Christ is supporting Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child again this October.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organisation. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. After receiving shoebox gifts, many children are also invited back to participate in The Greatest Journey – an evangelism and discipleship program. We ship these simple gifts from Australia and New Zealand to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease. These gifts are given without condition and without regard to the race, creed, gender, religion, or ethnicity of the beneficiaries.
We are a
- Resource Pick Up Point for individuals, churches, schools or other participating groups can pick up resources such as pre-printed shoe boxes and brochures ready for packing.
- Drop-Off Point for individuals, churches, schools or other participating groups to drop-off filled shoeboxes
Remember to shop ethically by choosing goods that have been manufactured without exploitation.

A chance to remember, to reflect and give thanks to our Heavenly Father, to the good men who have spent time (long or short) in our lives - fathers, sons, grandfathers, teachers, carers, church men, neighbours and many others for the positive impact that their presence and caring has shown us over our lives.
Prayer for Gratitude Towards Our Heavenly Father
I am so grateful for everything that You have given me. Thank you so much for the loved ones in my life, and for the many ways in which I am cared for and supported on a day to day basis. Thank you for the many ways I can serve and give to others. Thank you for the rich tapestry of colors throughout creation, for the beauty that is all around me, and for the skies and the ever-changing environment that surrounds me. My heart is so grateful for all that You have bestowed me within my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is in Your name that I sing my praises!
Yes that's right!
