The Carols music team began rehearsals in October, for Christmas Carols in Lambton Park in December.
Carols is looking to be awesome this year, but as always, we rely 100% on God's help and grace. Please pray for great weather, 7000 people and for Jesus to be at work, moving people to want to know more about him!
LAKE MAC LIFE SERIES
The Lake Mac Life Series kicked off on the 11th of October at Warners at the Bay. Pray for the 6 Non-Christians who have come along, and those who are being followed up by our Lake Mac team.
Gunnedah Mini Mission
On the 14th of October a team of 11 HBCers headed to Gunnedah for a weekend-long mission. The team shared the gospel with over 200 non-Christian students in the local high school, visited the homes of the elderly to encourage them in their walk with Jesus, did walk-up/door-knocking, ran their youth group and Sunday services.
Another mini-mission is coming up out to Quirindi at the end of November! Let us know if you're keen to come help.

AM Family Lunch
Newy:Am had a lunch get-together the other week. This was especially great to hang out with all the Sprout Kids helpers. Newy:PM recently had an after church dinner too.
Please keep praying that God would help us all be a loving and connected fellowship, while always looking outwards to see more people saved.
October was a much better month, and we've clawed back a bit of our deficit. We're still about $40k behind our 'year-to-date' target.
Some of the things our giving went towards in October were:
$3,200 to our Missionaries
$1,000 to cover some MTS Training Courses
$1,100 for some repairs, equipment, resources and cleaning
$12,000 to cover rent for the Hub, Lambton High, Eleebana and the Uni
Thank God for one another's generosity. Every dollar we give goes towards helping our church deepen our faith and reach more of the lost.
