is the Great Outback BBQ?
year, congregations from all over Australia gather ‘round the grill’ and
host a BBQ event to show support for keeping our Bush Chaplains on the
road and resource our Outback Links volunteering program, ensuring practical,
pastoral and spiritual care is available to people of the Outback. Every
dollar means we will help overcome the tyranny of distance.
on from our church service on Sunday 21 October, we will hold our
‘Great Outback BBQ’ for Frontier Services. Enjoy a BBQ lunch and
contribute your donations to this important fund raising event.
Group – it was pleasing
to hear how the Thursday morning Play Group is continuing to grow in number.
Twenty children are now registered. Apart from the children learning to
share and have fun together, the mothers/carers that come along with them also
find it a time of sharing and caring for each other.

donations from the Teese family and the Warragul Uniting Church Catering Group

the Church Office if you would like to help fund this work.

The minister's five year-old daughter
noticed that her father always paused and bowed his head for a moment
before starting his sermon. One day, she asked him why.
'Well, dear,' he began, proud that his daughter was so observant of his
messages. 'I'm asking the Lord to help me preach a good sermon. '
'How come He doesn't answer it? ' she asked.
UN-TIMELY ANSWERED PRAYER
During the minister's prayer one Sunday,
there was a loud whistle from one of the back pews. Richard's mother
was horrified. She pinched him into silence and, after church,
asked, 'Richard, whatever made you do such a thing? '
answered slowly, 'I asked God to teach me to whistle, and He did! '
