“God is for us, then who can be against us.”Rom 8:31
Fellowship Day on the 10 September 2020 in Kingaroy was our first major function in a long time, We could feel the atmosphere and anticipation was warm and inviting from a beautiful group of ladies from St John’s Lutheran Ladies Friendship Circle. They worked so hard to make sure they had everything Covid19 safe, there were no hugs, a lot of elbows and much enthusiastic chatter. Joan Yappa President of Kingaroy opened the fellowship welcoming all the ladies with instructions in place to inform everyone the procedure we must follow to be Covid19 safe.
Bible Study was conducted by Jordon Bennett who is South Burnett Parish Worker/Youth Dude. Being a young parent he shared that nothing could come between him and his children. We were reminded that we are God’s children and that he has our picture on His wall and we are not random accidents. He chose us before we were born. He calls us and waits for us as we pray, He understands our needs even when words are too hard for us to find or express.
Glenice Larsen opened the morning devotion by asking the question, “Do we see ourselves as others see us?” Karen Bryce Qld.L.W. President reminded us of the importance of continuing to be shining lights in the community and for us to continue supporting all projects where possible. Our offering to be donated to “Asia Focus” was $787.00 . After a tasty lunch we were able to watch a video centred on the hymn “It is well with My Soul” the video narrated the life of Horatio Spafford and his family. After suffering the loss of his children, Spafford wrote this beautiful hymn as a testament to the salvation he found in Jesus through the good and bad times in life.
Heidi Lane, President of WBB Zone, congratulated President Joan Yappa and all the Kingaroy Fellowship on organising such a successful day. The closing devotion centred on “A Peaceful state of Mind” from Philipians 4:7 this was read by Kay Bochman.
