We meet at the Fitzgerald State School Hall (Norris Road, North Mackay). We hear from God’s word, ask questions, pray, sing and share some food. We kick off at 4pm followed by just over an hour of teaching, prayer, hearing the bible read and singing.
Kids head out at the start of church for Kids Church where they dig into the bible and have anything from raps, videos, skits and more to reinforce the teaching and have fun. We think it’s important to provide age appropriate teaching for the kids but if you prefer for your kids to be with you during the service that is fine too. We have creche for those little ones.
We share afternoon tea together after church (and pizza on the first Sunday of the month) and the kids are served a kids dinner.
Come as you are! No church experience required
We now have four age groups:
- Creche is for babies from when they are sitting/crawling (and when you think they’re ready!) to about kindy age. This time is loosely structured with a song, short picture story and lots of play.
- Prep-Yr2/3 (plus toddlers who are up to joining in) are taught a Bible lesson using Serious Play CEP material as well as getting to enjoy clay modelling, pictionary, cooking and games to reinforce the teaching.
- Yr3/4-Yr6/7 are also taught using the Over The Top CEP material (which includes lots of games/different teaching styles to reinforce learning) substituted with some topical teaching that tackles common preteen issues like: acceptance, popularity and friendship.
- Youth are catered for by a great group of young people, after church from 6 to 7:30pm, to meet up with them to read the Bible.
We have a number of groups meeting to help us to understand the Bible better for ourselves, to encourage each other to apply this in our day to day lives and to love each other in whatever circumstances we are in. We currently have mixed groups meeting on Wednesday and Thursday evening and a men’s group on Tuesdays. Two of these groups meet in Mount Pleasant and one in West Mackay. This is a great chance to get to know each other better, support each other, to read the Bible and pray together. Contact Jai on 0429 852 949 if you’d like more details or are keen to come along.
Daytime Woman’s Bible Study
For those women who can’t get out of the house at night, we meet Tuesday Mornings at 9:00am. God willing we will have someone to help look out for any kids who are there so that we can chat, study and pray.
