Nungalinya eNews - August 2015

Dear <<First Name>> 


Third term has begun and we are delighted to have a new group of students eager to learn from God's Word. It has been a struggle for many just to get to the College and some didn't make it for various family and transport-related reasons. 

Nevertheless, those who have arrived are in good spirits and looking forward to a fruitful term. Our new iPads have allowed more students to take advantage of helpful apps which make learning easier and more enjoyable. Once again we want to thank everyone who donated generously to this project.

Prayer Points

If you are short on time:

  • Give thanks for the students who have safely arrived at college for term 3. Pray that they will be greatly blessed and equipped for service in God's Kingdom through their communities.
  • Please give thanks that John Bonney has been able to fill in during a temporary teacher shortage. John is a member of our Board and an experienced teacher.
  • Praise God for the teams of volunteers from Mona Vale Anglican and Austinmer Anglican who helped with many maintenance tasks and improvements to the College campus during the holidays.
If you have a bit longer:
  • Give thanks that many staff were able to enjoy a refreshing break during the holidays, visiting friends and family down south and overseas.
  • Please pray for the Finance Committee which meets this month to discuss strategies for coping with changing funding arrangements.
  • Give thanks for the deployment of the new iPads which were generously donated and prepared during the holidays. Pray that students will use them well and gain confidence using technology.
The Rev'd Dr Bruce KayeAdjunct Research Professor, Centre for Public and Contextual Theology at Charles Sturt University, is presenting three lectures at Nungalinya College.

Darwin Mid-Week Lectures - Open to the Public


Nungalinya College has begun a series of Mid-Week Bible Lectures on Wednesdays 29 July, 5 and 12 August, 7:30pm - 9:00pm. These will be substantial lectures suitable for thoughtful students of the Bible. Pastors are especially encouraged to attend.

Living the Gospel in Different Cultures - Paul as Cross-cultural Apostle 
 
1. Being a Christian in an Imperial city (Philippi)
Listen to it HERE
 
2. Being a Christian in a Free City within an Empire (Thessalonica)
 
3. Being a Christian in a Cosmopolitan trading city (Corinth)

 
Each of these cities is identifiably different and the way Paul presented the gospel and built a church was also discernibly different in each place.  

Why not bring your home group for some in-depth teaching and encouragement?

 
These lectures are presented as a service to the Christian Community at no charge.

From the Bible

2 Corinthians 5:18

New International Version (NIV) 
 

All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation

Volunteers help during holidays

We have been greatly blessed by having volunteers, both teams and individuals, at the College who have helped us use the holiday period for much-needed repairs and upgrades.
The team from Mona Vale Anglican Church tackled jobs from painting and gardening to Library and website maintenance. But it was Scotty's work in making a new ramp for the Resource Centre that had us all sweating on the sidelines. Thanks for a fabulous job Scotty; our friends with mobility issues are very grateful.
