The Church Launch – Be There!

We are less than two weeks away from launching of The Church in Caloundra. To celebrate the event, you are invited to join us on the weekend of Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October for the following planned events.

II Soul Winning Marathon – Sunshine Coast

The second soul-winning marathon on the Sunshine Coast will be held the day before the first official church meeting. If you came to the first soul winning marathon, the meeting location is directly across the street (Arthur St) from where we met last year.

The whole family is invited. As we did last year, children and one of their parents are welcome to remain at the meeting hall for fellowship while those who are soul-winning will be out knocking doors and preaching the gospel. The meeting location has a large sporting grass field so the children are free to run around and kick balls.

Soul Winning Marathon 2016

As we make preparations for The Church in Caloundra, we take a look back at the Soul Winning Marathon which took place on Saturday the 29th October 2016. This event was an opportunity for Kevin Sepulveda to gage the need for a gospel preaching church on the Sunshine Coast. It also allowed the local believers to gather together for a time of work and fellowship, many of whom met for the first time.

The event was co-hosted by The Church in Punchbowl and Thus Saith The LORD Ministries. The local believers also had an opportunity to be baptised.

Thus Saith the LORD Ministries published a fresh batch of leaflets (which have to be the best and most visually attractive tracts) just in time for the event.

The Caloundra Scout Group hall was decided as the central meeting point with Little Mountain as the targeted gospel preaching suburb.
Mark 3:13 And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.

The schedule was planned as per below, which for the most part were able to keep in track of.

Schedule:
8:00 a.m. Doors opened
9:00 a.m. Official starting time
9:30 a.m. Morning soul winning
12:30 p.m. Baptisms: Currimundi Lake, Westaway Parade, Currimundi: (See Map Below)
1:00 p.m. Lunch: Currimundi Lake
2:30 p.m. Afternoon soul winning
6:30 p.m. Dinner
7:00 p.m. Evening Gathering for Hymns, Prayer, Bible Reading & Sermons
9:00 p.m. Official end time
10:00 p.m. Doors closed

The day started with 12 soul winners divided into six teams knocking the doors of Little Mountain. Six residents believed the gospel and received Jesus as their saviour.

Next we headed to Currimundi Lake for lunch and baptisms. Seven believers took advantage of being baptised as a step of obedience on the day.

In the afternoon we had 11 soul winners divided into five teams. We thank God for one more soul who called upon the name of the Lord, receiving eternal life.

The day concluded by gathering together for dinner, a time of singing, prayer, bible reading, and bible preaching. We praise God for the fellowship and opportunity to meet with other like-minded believers.

In Summary:

  • 44 in attendance
  • 13 soul winners preaching the gospel
  • 7 souls saved from Little Mountain
  • 7 believers baptised
