Funding a Place for People

Funding A Place For People to Know God

We have launched a fundraising campaign to create a ministry base for our church.  We would love you to continue to pray about and explore how you can contribute to our goal before the end of March.  Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Use your savings now for the Kingdom
  • Extend your mortgage by a year or two
  • Work for a year or two before retirement
  • Put off trips, renovations, upgrades, and purchases
  • Work some overtime if you can
  • Share this message with friends and family

You can make deposits direct into our Building Fund account:

Here’s how we are tracking so far:


Volunteer

Do you have some spare time and are looking to help out somewhere?

We are always looking for people to serve others, to help in small and big ways.  You might be able to offer 30 minutes a week, or 30 minutes a day, but whatever the case, we can use the time you have available!  Let us know what you like to do, how you can help, or what time you have available, and we will find a way to include your time and skills.

Here are some of the opportunities:

Sunday

Welcoming – welcome people on their arrival at church, ushering

Morning tea – organising, serving coffee and tea

Kids Church – key leader, other leaders and helpers (for grades 1-5 and 6-8)

Creche – key leader, other leaders and helpers

Gathered Worship – praying, data operator (changing song slides on the computer), leading communion, music, preaching, and more

 

During the Week

Youth – Friday night youth program leaders and supervisors

RE Day Camp – leaders, organising crafts, playing music, running games, and more (once a term)

Bookkeeper – (weekly)

Administration – various individual tasks

Prayer

Join our weekly prayer meeting on Thursday mornings:

  • Meet down on the Airlie foreshore
  • From 6:30 am at one of the picnic tables under the trees
  • Share breakfast afterwards on the Esplanade if you’re free
  • Head off to work or play by 8 am

We would love to see you there.


Community

We love to serve our local community, and we do this in a variety of ways.  Sometimes we hold special events and invite the locals to come along.  Other times, you may find us at a stand at one of our local shopping centres or handing out free coffee at the Christmas carols at Airlie Beach.  We assist those with little resources, with practical help and we like to help out in other ways as much as we can.
