A message from Matthew September 17

“Where there is no vision, the people perish”
(Proverbs 29:18a KJV)

These are dramatic words.

They are words that get my attention.

They are ancient words of wisdom from the scriptures.

On Saturday September 23rd the people of Burnside City Uniting Church are invited to gather for a Vision and Mission Retreat Workshop. This will begin at 10am and will include lunch. Please provide an ‘expression of interest’ to the Church Council
Secretary, Gill Cibich by Thursday 21st of September for catering and preparation
purposes. We will conclude the day at 4pm.

Over recent months we have all participated in the “Gifts of the Spirit” series and have learned that we all have Spiritual Gifts that are to be used in the service of God through our church.

Last year we filled in the National Church Life Survey and these results are now
available for us to better understand our church and the situation for all churches in Australia.

We have valuable ideas from the Vision and Mission afternoon held here on the 20th of August.

Many people have been praying regularly and seeking to hear from God about what God has planned for our church in the future.

From this information we will be asked on September 23 as Gary Stuckey leads us in this retreat workshop to discern where God is leading us as a church community.

We have gathered a lot of information and we will respect the privacy of the people who have shared from their hearts.

This is another step along the way as we faithfully seek to be the church that God has called us to be.

Please make every effort to be here on the 23rd of September.

God bless,
