Good morning pastors. Pray you are well and advancing in the plans God has for you. The reason for my email is to give an update of the CityServe projects to date.
October 10th Oak Flats swimming pool. A perfect day of weather with over 120 volunteers in attendance, all of the works completed much to the surprise of council and a great partnership with the local pool committee who were incredibly grateful for the assistance. The pool and surrounds look terrific and ready for the 50 year celebration in November.
October 17th Jock Brown Oval. Another brilliant day of weather. Over 40 volunteers in attendance and all of the projects completed. The day began with another partnership of the local cricket community and CityServe. The oval and amenities look transformed.
I wanted to note that the Gospel has been shared at each of these events with both council and community members.
October 24th A family with need has been identified with the help of council and the Illawarra disability trust, so a team of 15 men will be there Saturday to erect 30 metres of pool fence and remove a large palm tree.
October 31st Little athletics field Croome rd. The combined Churches from the Albion Park area will be combining with council to transform the oval and surrounding parks.
To date we have over 20 Churches partnering across the City and hundreds of volunteers attending to assist in transforming out City, the work of these volunteers is truly inspiring.
On Friday the 6th November will be holding our second prayer breakfast to celebrate the work of CityServe in our City. The keynote speaker is Margaret Court, can I please ask you encourage your congregations to purchase tickets to what we believe will be a significant event in the life of our City. Tickets can be purchased at Manna bookstore or online http://shellharbourprayerbreakfast.org/ .
Looking forward to the great plans God has for our City. Shane
