BBQ3 

Last Sunday we had our BBQ Community! 

Thanks to all for coming, the event was a big success. 
We served lunch for more than 150 people, including Foodcare and others passing by; but more important than that, we had the privilege of meeting and chatting to so many precious people who live around Dee Why.

The bible says that the church is the light of the world and that we should not be shy and hidden, instead we should be shinning His light in our community so people will see the goodness of Our Father (Mt 5:14,16). 


"We need to be out there sharing the good news, interacting with the community more so they can see Jesus in us, our actions, our servant hearts, our family at Grace City, etc. 
What better way to do this than handing out free burgers and food to the public and chatting to them which impacts the community and raises awareness of the Grace City and Gods love. 
I know the Community BBQ started as a way to connect Church family with Foodcare family, but it can be so much more!!!”  Glen Mace, Welcome team leader

 

And Glen is right; the Community BBQ is an opportunity for the church to be together on the streets, blessing others and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. So, we would like to encourage the whole Grace City Church family to engage in this amazing privilege of being on the streets showing God's love and sharing life with our community.

We would also like to honour Joel and Annie and Shaun and Lara for organising this event and serving with a smile on their faces despite the extreme heat of 38 degrees! You guys and all the other volunteers are champions!

If you couldn't attend last Sunday, there's no need to be upset, we'll have more in May. Stay tuned!

Our Tibetan Friends

Tibetan Heading

How good it is to live in a Multicultural area, where we can meet people from all parts of the world! 
We had the pleasure of meeting the Tibetan community through Grace City Foodcare. They frequently come to our shop where we can talk and share experiences. It did not take us long to learn how generous and full of life they are.

But more than that, they showed us that they are a people full of gratitude, a people who appreciate relationships; and last, but not least, a people who can cook amazing food. 
They held a feast for all the volunteers of Foodcare with the purpose of thanking them for serving the community in such a loving way. The feast was made of delicious traditional food and incredible dumplings. 

They also shared some of their life stories and the struggles they’ve been through. We are truly blessed to have them around us and to call them friends. And there’s more, the Foodcare Team was invited to celebrate the Tibetan New Year this Saturday with them. What a privilege!

Exercise in the Park // James Meehan Reserve!


The energetic men of Grace City Church have been diligently gathering to work up a manly sweat before sunrise on Wednesday mornings! All men are welcome who are keen to meet new friends and fit in some much needed exercise into their often busy weeks. All are welcome to come and bring along a mate to the super friendly and inclusive ministry. Also at $5 a week to cover equipment, what a bargain and worthwhile reason to wake up a little bit earlier for fellowship, fun and fitness.

"It is a lot of fun having varied and creative workouts every week, and such a great fun community"

Check out some pictures from last week and if you know anyone who would be keen let us know or bring them along!!!
