HBC: LAKE MAC CONGREGATION LAUNCH
The new HBC congregation launched on the 21st of August! 90 people attended the launch, with 20 visitors.
Keep praying that Lake Mac would grow and the plant team would continue to be bold in inviting others along.
On the 12th - 14th of August, Youth had their weekend away. Over the weekend Matt Sheridan gave a series of talks on Philippians. Youth were challenged to live their lives for Christ as he is returning and lord of all.
PM16 Weekend Away
On the 19th of August, our PM congregation headed to Toukley for their weekend away. Despite sickness (and the speaker not being able to make it!!), it was a great opportunity to look at what God thinks about identity, gender and sexuality.

BIG IDEAS NIGHT: PREDESTINATION
On the 31st of August, we had our fifth Big Ideas Night. Richard explored predestination and what it means for our lives.
GRAD DINNER #1 & #2
Graduating is a time that requires us to make decisions that will affect the rest of our lives. On the 31st of August, recent and soon-to-be graduates from Unichurch had dinner together where Greg explored the topic of money. They were challenged to make wise decisions about their future and how money should shape their lives as Christians in the workforce.
From the 5th- 8th of September our senior staff headed to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches' Conference. It was a great opportunity to spend time with other ministry workers and be encouraged to keep persevering from 1Peter in a hostile world.
MTS Mission Minded
On the 30th of September, staff, MTSers and HBC members headed to the MTS Mission Minded Conference at Katoomba. They spent the long weekend hearing what the bible says about full-time ministry and considering if that might be a path for them.
Please thank God for all those who came and thought through these massive ideas.
