NOTICE OF EXTRAORDINARY MEETING
for the Formal Members of
Woden Valley Alliance Church Inc
81 Namatjira Drive, Waramanga ACT 2611
11th February 2024
(11am - Immediately after the morning service)
Please refer to the attached letter from the Chairman of the Board of Elders, in regard to the Extraordinary Meeting to be held on 11th February 2024.
All Formal Members are expected to make every effort to be present for this important meeting.
Once a year we have an opportunity to give a love offering to God. It is appropriate that it is around the same time as Valentines day. It is your way of being thankful to God for all His blessings. This year our Love Offering will be on 11th February.
Some say that it should be directed to some project with some price tag, I don’t believe that is what it is about! It is a love offering between you and God given to Him through the church. This is not replacing your usual Tithe but an extra offering on top of what you would normally give. Generally, we give from our overflow, may this be a gift from your heart to God’s.
You can give in the following ways
- Direct Debit (with the reference Love Offering)
- During the service on 11th February (mark your gift "Love Offering")
- Clicking on the payment link to pay via Credit Card
2 Corinthians 9:7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
The C&MA Australia would like to assist the Jaffray Theological Seminary, Makassar, Indonesia with our Christmas Offering this year.
Funds raised will go to the following:
- New books for the campus library
- Building a new girls dormitory
We want to bless struggling families from Mt Stromlo High School & Arawang Primary Schools this Christmas.
Please mark your donations (cash or direct debit) "Christmas Hampers" or click on the payment button on the left.
Last date for donations is 3rd December
The team heading to Uganda have decided to participate in a walk-a-thon, to help raise funds to provide medical supplies and resources for the health clinics that they will be visiting. The team will be walking 60km over two days. So, if trivia isn't your thing, why don't you sponsor them in this endeavour? You can donate following the link.
We are a church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. We have a great heritage; rich in mission, both local and overseas. We are motivated by God’s Word which says, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matt 28:19).
In the C&MA, one of our greatest concerns is, that all people have the opportunity to hear the gospel.
We, as a local church, have our responsibility to reach this community here in Canberra. But we also have the opportunity and responsibility to share the gospel with people in other nations at the same time.
The Faith Promise for the Great Commission Fund has been our way of supporting our missionaries in the C&MA for over 100 years. We have taken the approach that we raise the support of our Alliance Missionaries as local churches and allow our missionaries to get on with and focus on the ministry to which they have been called.
Our Faith Promise is not related to our local church tithes or offerings. We would encourage you to consider making a Faith Promise which supports our Alliance Missionaries, The Alliance Institute for Mission and other ministries supported by the National Office. This is a commitment over and above your local church giving.
