A BIG thank you to everyone who has been busy collecting and donating items for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. The children will have plenty of lovely items to choose from when they pack the shoeboxes at Kidz Church next Sunday 8th Sept. Please, if you have been waiting to bring your donations in, we do need them to the church office by Friday 6th Sept. All of our children have also prepared an "All about me" letter and a small craft item to go into the box as well, for a personal touch:) Excitement has been building all term and we look forward to making lots of special memories next Sunday when we pack and pray over these boxes. As mentioned previously, each box requires $9 for postage and handling costs so any financial contributions will be gratefully accepted. There will be opportunity to give for this appeal in early October also as a 2nd offering has been planned.
Kidz Church and Jnr Kidz Church finishes up for the term on the 15th Sept. Kidz Church has a celebration/activity morning planned as it's nearly holiday time as well as having many of our boys and girls away on Gems/Cadets camp. We may even be packing some extra shoe boxes:)
During holiday time (22nd and 29th Sept, 6th Oct) our morning church services will be family friendly:) so please plan to come along and worship God together as a family. I am on the look out for children who would like to be part of the service (Bible reading, welcomers, singers) so let me know if your children are keen. We will continue to have care provided for our Jnr Kidz Church age children (3-6yrs) during the service in the shed, as well as creche as normal.
Kidz Church and Jnr Kidz Church will start back for term 4 on the 13th Oct.
If you would like to be part of our Kidz Church ministry I would love to hear from you. I am currently looking for a teacher for our grade 3s and a number of helpers. What a great opportunity to invest into the lives of our little people here at BPCC. Please prayerfully consider coming alongside us in this amazing ministry.
