PTC Short Course—Effective Youth Ministry
This course run by Rev. Brian Harvey, Youth Ministries Director of the PCV is on 6 Wednesday evenings—27 July, and 3, 17, 24 and 31 August and 7 September from 7 to 9.00pm at the PTC in Box Hill North. The cost for the six sessions is $80.
The July/August Prayerletter from the Seymours—”Jesus for the Japanese” – the last before they return to Australia on home assignment is available this morning on the table to your right as you enter the Forrest Hall. The Seymours will return to Melbourne on September 10. They ask for prayer for guidance. OMF is considering assigning them to the “Diaspora” field of ministry—probably in Melbourne. The “Diaspora” field involves working among overseas based Japanese, with a view to seeing them become disciples of Jesus and going back to Japan to evangelise their own people.
Six Steps To Loving Your Church
If you would like to take part in this exciting six-session program which covers subjects such as (1) your current attitudes towards church, and how they are expressed; (2) what the Bible says about church and its purposes; (3) what it means to love your church and the people who go there; (4) how all of us can be engaged in the “ministry of the pew” – an active, loving service of others, before, during and after church, then a new group begins THIS TUESDAY (16 AUGUST) at 7.30pm in Room 1 and will continue through weekly until 20 September. If you are in either the Thursday evening or the Friday morning groups which are undertaking this program on a fortnightly basis you are most welcome to attend the Tuesday group for any of the sessions you miss with your regular group
