for the week of 17 November 2019

Presbytery Information Forum – Wednesday Nov. 20th, 7pm @ BCUC
In preparation for the congregation to decide at the Nov 24th AGM whether we will join Generate Presbytery or remain in the default, regional presbytery (named “Presbytery B”), we will host an information forum with special guests: Rev. Steph Tai (Secretary of Generate) and Rev. Sue Page (Assoc. Gen. Secretary from the presbytery restructuring task group). They will be available for a Q and A.

Netball Christmas Celebration – Sunday 1 December, 6pm @ BCUC
Dinner, drinks, and ice cream. Activities, carols, and a Christmas message.  Free! RSVP for catering purposes to bcucnc@gmail.com or call Cathie.

Christmas Psalm Booklet
Please write your own Psalm to share in our Christmas Psalm Booklet.  Psalms teaches us how to relate to God as God’s beloved children, individually and together. Some poetic styles such as Sonnet, Haiku, Acrostic, Free Verse and others can be used to describe God’s nature, His relationship to the world, His Son, His Spirit, and His relationship with you. “Psalms is a form of storytelling. The key to writing is making the audience feel. Give them something to remember and hold onto. It expresses time with God”.  Send your Psalm to bcucchats@burnsidecityuc.org.au

Elder/Church Councillor Nominees
Profiles of nominees standing for Elders to Church Council have been emailed to the congregation.  Printed copies of this booklet are available today at the reception desk.  Voting for Elders will be held at the AGM on November 24th.    Be guided by the Holy Spirit as you consider your vote.

AGM
Please join us for our AGM on
Sunday November 24 at 2pm. The agenda, budget, Annual Report, and Elder nominee profiles have been emailed to members.  Paper copies are also available at the reception desk.

Mid Week Communion
A communion service will be held Monday November 18th at 2pm in the Chapel.  All are invited.

Unwrapping Joy – Wednesday Study Group
As a follow-on from our recent Alpha event, we are holding a five session study series Wednesday lunch times (12 noon). We are using Benji’s book, “Unwrapping Joy”, which focusses on the joy of Jesus’ arrival here on earth, and the joy that we can experience as believers. We meet at BCUC and bring our own lunch to eat with others in community. This Wednesday will be our second week but please feel free to join in and to invite anyone else to these sessions, as we look forward in joyful anticipation to Christmas time as a celebration of Jesus’ birth.
