WHAT IS A DAD?

Father’s Day 4/09/2011

  A dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead picks you up, brushes you off, and lets you try again. A dad is someone who wants to keep you from making mistakes but instead lets you find your own way, even though his heart breaks in silence when you get hurt. A dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail…
Dad, you’re everything a dad should be and some.

 On Sunday, 23 August 2009, four young people had their first communion, after completing an instruction course with Pastor Brenton.  This is another milestone in the children’s faith journey, as they learn to confess their sins to God, and receive forgiveness through the sacrament of Holy Communion.

LWNSW Convention 2009
2/05/2009
 “Passion, Compassion, Empowerment” was the theme for the LWNSW Convention held in Dubbo on 2 May 2009. Pastor Brenton Fiedler opened the convention with a devotion and a slight twist on the theme saying he thought a ladies get-together may include ‘passion, compassion and…. fashion’!!  Dubbo’s Mayor Cr Greg Matthews then welcomed the 80 ladies from 21 guilds across NSW to our city.
During the day we enjoyed a talk by Jeanie Kenny (filling in for Jenny Pietsch from Albury Aged Care) speaking about these Aged-care facilities. Other ladies from within the room also added their stories of their experiences of visiting or working at these facilities including our Margaret Rohrich. (Part of the day’s offering went towards particular equipment needs for the Aged-care facilities.)
We were also treated to an eye-opening powerpoint presentation by Jenny Pfitzner from ALWS as she walked and talked us through the work that is being done overseas with the funds donated to LWS. A bible study with Pastor Geoff Kuchel, business matters conducted by Pastor David Freckelton, a lunchtime skit, a  talk by LLL’s Marie Pawsey and loads of wonderful singing  made for a very full convention program. Many great comments were expressed for a delicious morning tea and luncheon (thanks to Gilgandra & Dubbo ladies),  for a great powerpoint accompanying our songs thanks to Heather Molkentin and a lovely theme banner by Kylie Semmler.

30th Anniversary & Affirmation of Pastor Brenton

 

 


 PASTOR BRENTON’S AFFIRMATION OF CALL

Dear friends we all have a story to tell about the year of God’s favour as we look to the font and to the altar and as we receive the absolution and the Supper in hearing the Word.  Let’s celebrate and give thanks.

And today we give thanks for those who have been called here to proclaim the Word and bring us the grace of God in their ministry.  Especially today we thank God for Pastor Brenton as we affirm his call as the herald; as the messenger to show us and teach us and proclaim Jesus to us.  Pastor Brenton is called and set apart in this community primarily for this.  He is a faithful servant and seeks to carry out his calling to the very best that he can.  Brenton we thank God for you as the Spirit of the Lord guides you in your ministry.  God is with you and he is faithful.  Through the word spoken and enacted God does what he promises.

Our call first of all then is to receive Jesus for us.  The church building assists us.  Our pastor is a gift to bring us the message.  But above all our call is not to a building but it is to focus on Jesus.  To receive all he has for us and to hear his call to us too.

For we too have received the Spirit of God.  We too are called to live and speak and act in the world.  We too are called to bring the good news to the poor.  Wow!  Friends this is certainly something to celebrate and give thanks for.  Our God fills us to be overfilling with his grace in this world, in this community!  He equips us with faith to worship him, to receive all his gifts and then to go out from this building to serve.

You are holy!  Paul writes in 1 Thess 5:22, 23.
    Some parish member greeting Pastor Brenton with a verse from Scripture and a word of encouragement.

Winery Tour

On the 5th April 2008 members of St Marks and friends went on a tour of the Dubbo wineries. They visited four wineries and took a lunch break back at St Marks Church before soldiering on. Much monies were raised to replace the church carpet and other projects. It is plain to see a good time was had by all.
