This Element Youth update is coming mid-week as we make sure there was clarity on restrictions.
The good news is that WE CAN HAVE YOUTH IN PERSON THIS WEEK!
Of course we will be abiding by the directives from SA Health and so that means a couple of things:
1 - Masks will be required at youth for all of us 12 years and older (unless you have a medical valid reason not to)
2 - We will be meeting in the auditorium instead of the youth lounge (in order to comply with the 1 person/4sqm)
3 - We will enter in the main entrance of the church for sign in and pick up
But aside from that - it will be youth as normal! In fact we'll have some fun making our own masks, as well as playing games, hanging out, eating food and starting our video series.
SEE YOU FRIDAY 7pm @ MARION!!
Youth and Young Adults Pastor Stephen Scott
Side Gate Café and Good Gear will be closed until Monday 9 August (usual hours) - subject to COVID guidelines.
We wish all our faithful and dedicated volunteers an enjoyable time-out to recharge and refresh.
We look forward to seeing you back on Monday 9 August 2021.
Hello Church Family,
Lockdown in SA means we can't meet onsite this Sunday but watch this space because we have a great team working behind the scenes planning and organising a way that we can connect online. Check your emails and this APP as we come closer to Sunday for all the information.
Tonight is our MCC Prayer Night via ZOOM. If you would like to connect in, please email the church office and we'll send you the link.
During this time, take time to feel God's presence with you through reading your bible and praying- our Heavenly Father is not in lockdown!
Philippians 4:6-7 New International Version
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Due to Level 4 restrictions the following will not be in operation for the remainder of this week.
(20th July to 23rd July.)
· Side Gate Café
· Good Gear shop
· Craft (Wednesday)
· Marion Movers (Friday)
Thank you for your understanding and we continue to pray for the COVID situation across our nation and the globe. We uplift those who are suffering, those caring and grieving for loved ones and the many wonderful medical staff.
Stay connected through Facebook and APP, or leave a message on the answer machine in the office.
Side Gate Café will be closed for the first week in August (Mon 2 Aug—Thurs 5 Aug) to give our hard working volunteers a well deserved break!
ELEMENT YOUTH is back this Friday with a sessions night! We’ll also have the chance to write letters to our Compassion Youth and do a bit of decorating of the youth room.
We’re looking forward to reconnecting with all of you and hearing what you have (or haven’t) been up to over the holidays.
Looking ahead this term we will be:
- Doing a video series ‘AWAKEN’ to think about how we can live out our Christian faith
- Enjoying a bonfire one night
- Eating cake
- Becoming movie stars (or at least Marion News Stars)
- Having fun!
As usual - 7pm at the church with pick up around 9pm!
Don't forget that Thursday 22 July is our next Music Team practice.
Come along to catchup as a team and learn some new worship songs.
It's a fun night - you want to be there!
Our next MCC Prayer Night is on Wednesday 21 July at 7.30pm
Come and See!
Be encouraged by His words in Luke 11 9-10 9 “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
We encourage you to come physically at church. Prayer starts from 7:30pm. If you are not able to come, that’s ok- you can still join us via zoom. Keep a look out for the Zoom Link leading up to Wed 21 July 2021.
Psalm 13:5-6 New International Version
5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. 6 I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.
Nothing in your life is too big or small for God to handle.
But sometimes, we need to be reminded that we can talk with Him at any time.
Prayer Reminders are perfect for when you need extra encouragement to do just that.
Next MCC Prayer Night is Wednesday 21 July at 7.30pm.
Everyone is welcome.
