For 65 years, The Christmas Bowl has meant special Advent giving from people in our churches for aid to people in need in the world’s Developing Nations. The Christmas Bowl represents churches working together through Act For Peace, the aid arm of the National Council of Churches.
Each year envelopes are distributed in the churches, frequently they contain gifts from Christian families from an extra bowl on the Christmas Day Dinner Table. In South Australia, Blackwood Church of Christ and Blackwood Uniting Church have been among the strongest supporters in our State in recent years.
One way of witnessing to the general public, (and preparing ourselves) is by sharing in a state-wide Badge Day. This year Blackwood Foodland and Blackwood Coles have agreed to badgesellers on Tuesday December 9. We need more badge sellers if this is to work. Please contact Malcolm McArthur on 82781294 a.s.a.p. if you are able to help for an hour between 8.30 and 2.30. (The Russells are also a contact in the Church of Christ)
Grace and Peace,
