Mark the Evangelist Update – October 8 2015
the latest MtE news update:
- Following worship (morning tea) this Sunday October 11 there will be a short workshop considering the new preamble to UnitingCare Hotham Mission’s Strategic Plan, which is being reviewed after three years. We encourage you, if you are able, to stay for a half hour or so to reflect on UCHM’s work and its link to the life of the congregation, as expressed in the preamble. The focus text for the service will be the gospel for the day (Mark 10.17-30); we may get to finishing up with James the following week! The text of the new preamble is available here.
- Our annual All Saints luncheon approaches again: Sunday November 1! If you are likely to be attending for the luncheon, please let Rod know; if you are able to assist with bringing something to contribute to the meal, please speak to Bev.
- We are seeking someone to take over responsibility for overseeing the provision of morning tea after worship. While the work on any day is done by those rostered, we need a person to maintain the tea and coffee supplies (not milk; with reimbursement), wash the tea towels as needed, order, supply or arrange occasional birthday cakes (usually just the “decade” birthdays) and for baptisms or over special events. If you think might be able to take this on or share it for a shorter or longer term, please speak to Rod.
