MUSTARD SEED – Pentecost 21
6 November 2011
MISSION PLAN PRAYER: Thank you, God, for congregations welcoming people with physical or intellectual disabilities. Enrich them as they work and worship together.
PLANNED GIVING UPDATE It’s six months since we distributed Planned Giving resources and 24 households generously made their commitment for the current financial year. Church Council is running a little behind budget for the offerings received because there seems to have been a decline in giving over winter. At this half-way point, we’d like to provide you with an opportunity to review your giving. Do you need to: CATCH-UP? Have you been away on holidays or been unwell? Has your income from investments been delayed or is a client late paying you? There are lots of reasons that we get behind on our regular commitments – please try to ‘catch-up’ on your giving if you’ve given less than you intended. GIVE A ONE-OFF? Have you had a pleasant tax return or an investment windfall? Has business been going well or you had a pay rise? Do you just want to give because you’re thankful? We have lots of reasons to be thankful to God – please consider giving a one-off gift to God’s mission in this parish. GET ORGANISED? Have you been meaning to fill in a direct debit form? Would you be more disciplined if you gave a monthly cheque instead of weekly cash? Would you like a set of numbered envelopes or information about how to transfer funds electronically? There are lots of reasons that we get disorganised with our giving – please consider how you can make it easy for yourself to give systematically.

NATIONAL CHURCH LIFE SURVEY - SUNDAY NOVEMBER 20: Every five years the Churches of Australia spend fifteen minutes completing a survey. The results of The National Church Life Survey are an invaluable resource, providing evidence-based resources to churches. Each congregation (or parish) receives a profile pack which can be used as a source of information to build on strengths. The profile pack also outlines how a church may have changed since the last survey. The Diocese is able to compare NCLS data with Census data to help with longrange planning. We will be completing the survey on Sunday November 20 during both services.
