It’s great to share with you at church today.

Please make yourself known to our staff if you are visiting. 

Our loving God has blessed us with many opportunities to share the gospel here at Gymea. I’d love to share one of them with you briefly – Playtime.

playgroup1On any given Friday morning our Playtime ministry sees more than 25 families, bringing more than 35 children. The vast majority of families coming are from outside our church. It’s a loving environment with many generations learning and growing from each other. It is a wonderful ministry.

This term we have been learning all about things that God has made, making crafts, singing songs, reading Bible stories, eating food and learning to pray to God.  Recently we had the privilege of having a reptile show where the children were able to get up close with animals and even get a photo with a real baby crocodile! It was wonderful opportunity to talk about God’s creation

Can you support us at Playtime?

Please join me in praying for this vital ministry. Please pray for our church members who come along each week and invest their time and energy getting to know new families and making them feel welcome. Please lift up to the Lord the hearts of the parents who come along  (we have many good conversations with them too!).
Like many ministries, there is lots of work to be done and we are in desperate need for helpers. Can you spare a Friday morning to assist us in the kitchen making sandwiches and serving tea? There’s nothing fancy involved in the food and it wouldn’t be a weekly commitment. We would love you to join us even if it was for just a week!

playgroup2Please thank God for our wonderful team

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers. You are all a true blessing to this ministry and the families who come along. Thank you also to the families from church that come along to support this growing ministry.

Let’s keep transforming lives for Christ.

 

Many blessings,

Olivia Robson (Playtime Coordinator)
