For drinking, maintaining hygiene and to help stop the spread of disease.
Join this community of young people across Australia, and give up your favourite drinks this September to change someone's life!
Challenge yourself this September, and make a lasting impact! It's not too late to join in.
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
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!
Yes that's right. We will have no 6pm service on Sunday 4 October.
Please RSVP for the 10am service and ensure your seat.
We would love to connect with you onsite or online in worship.
Also, don't forget Daylight Savings starts this weekend too.
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.
