Congregational Meeting (incl. Elders Election)

At Coro, we seek to be a people focused on Jesus; worshipping God, building one another up, enacting God's justice and proclaiming the good news of Jesus to the world.

On Sunday 25 October we will have our Congregational Meeting (AGM) where we will provide an update on various aspects of our life together as a church family as well as elect elders to help us prayerfully work towards our vision. Three of our current elders have retired since our last election; they are Loki Ingham and in recent weeks both Norm Tucker and Cat Patrick.

The current eldership comprises Wes Chambers, Jenny Wichert, Sam Cheesman and Steve Kaesler with Rick Seaman co-opted onto council until the end of October.

There are some changes to the process from last time, particularly to include those who are unable to be physically present at this time (refer the below tab 'How do I take part remotely?' for further information):

- The meeting will be live streamed so that those unable to attend can still participate (including the ability to make a comment or ask a question)

- Those unable to attend in person will be given the opportunity to cast their vote for eldership remotely over the seven days following the meeting.

We would love you to enter fully into this process. Firstly, please pray for the Lord's leading and His choice of elders to be elected. Secondly, consider who you may nominate:

- Read the [Election Info Sheet](https://www.corouniting.org/d/puzQm3aBj6y7BxL9uI9sMKSMm) for an overview of the process - green A5 flyer at the Welcome Desk

- If you are nominating someone (or are being nominated) you will also need:

- [Eldership at CoroUniting](https://www.corouniting.org/d/udUKcf0YzUO5NBrZqOTFqDOMM) (essential reading - explains the role of the elder in more detail) - cream A5 booklet at the Welcome Desk

- [Eldership Nomination forms](https://www.corouniting.org/d/30KjKrMh2yFhk2PyoaS71nMjk) - white A5 card at the Welcome Desk

See below for further information on the key dates and who can vote and how to take part remotely.

Monday Prayer Evening

Several of our church family meet together to pray each Monday evening - these meetings are open to all. Here is some info from the team:


We believe that we are at a significant time in history.

We come to pray for ourselves, our loved ones, our community and our world as never before. We feel we need to fast, seek the Lord, and stand in the gap for others - to pray with groans and cries for them.

We want to be like tennis players, alert and ready to receive a served ball, not asleep on the court – which means we want to be ready and alert to hear what God is saying to us and be ready to join with him in praying for what is on his heart.

We feel that obedience, repentance and humble spirits are incredibly important.

We want to use the gifts we have each been given so that when we come together we are like the picture of a body, all with particular jobs to do which benefit the whole.

We feel that the gifts of the Holy Spirit (wisdom, words of knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, the ability to tell the spirits apart, to speak in different kinds of languages and to be able to interpret what was said ([1 Cor 12](https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Corinthians+12&version=NIVUK)) are vital for this.

We remember the Great Commission:

(Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved but whoever does not will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons, they will speak in new tongues, they will pick up snakes with their hands and when they drink deadly poison it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well.’ [Mark 16:15-18](https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+16%3A15-18&version=NIVUK))

and understand that in order to fulfil this task we need to be baptised with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

Everyone is welcome to join us. Contact [Sue Thompson](mailto:david.suethompson@gmail.com) (0412 793 611) for details.

Further Information:

Males have an adventurous disposition. The world is a place of adventure. So what could go wrong!?!? Society today is plagued with boys struggling to know how to courageously step into the world, navigating the pitfalls of isolation, mental health, (screen) addictions, and lack of enduring role models. GENTS SA Father & Sons Camp facilitates unforgettable conversations around identity, value, purpose and virtue. These are weaved through great fun activities like archery tag, the amazing race, and just cooking your own food. This year's camp will explore the relationship between the vast internal world that must be mastered to take on the external world that beckons for an adventure.

Know a boy without a present father figure? Bring him along too!
