Well, August is over and along with that came our end-of-month church-wide collection for Forward. For the entire month of August we focussed on the Auckland City Mission and doing our part to bless the work they do in our city.
We suggested that you volunteer your time, txt a financial contribution (Txt "FIGHT" to 4741 to donate $3 directly to the Mission) and/or bring some food along to the last Sunday of the month. It turned out to be a great collection, which resulted in a station wagon bulging as it left on Sunday to take it to the ACM.
Winter has been hard for families in our city. The ACM has already delivered more emergency relief parcels to families in need this year, than they did for the entirety of 2015. The items we collected on Sunday will immediately go into the homes of those who are struggling to meet their basic needs as we begin Spring.
Thank you for being a church who wants to play our part in blessing our city. Stay tuned for September's focus shortly!
