Report from our Convenor: June 2021
The PWA Christian Education Standing Committee has not met since February 2020 due to Coronavirus pandemic restrictions but there have been numerous communications between members. There have been some ‘Time Out’ Bible studies conducted and the Cowell’s ‘Sketch’n’Scripture’ Ministry to Primary Schools in the far North West NSW and South West Queensland have proven to be very popular and recommenced in 2021. Letter Box lessons through PSSM (Postal Sunday School Ministries) have been promoted. Opening Devotionals, The Bible Puzzler Book, GLOSS Stationery packs and Bible League publications are available from PWA centre office and at Rallies
What is a Christian Education?
‘The Presbyterian Women’s Association Christian Education Standing Committee seeks to assist PWA branches and members of the PWA in sharing the Gospel of the living Christ with people of all ages, leading them to a personal and vital relationship with God as revealed in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, and guiding them into a life of total commitment of the fellowship of Christ’s Church.
The Committee supports prayerfully, practically and financially Christian outreach of SRE (Special religious Education) in schools, the Sketch’N’Scripture Ministries to outback primary school children, Letter Box Lessons of graded Scripture lessons suitable for children up to adults through PSSM (Postal Sunday School Ministries), and Missionary Teachers.
A ‘Time Out Bible Study’ is prepared by the Resource Sub Committee and launched in the city PWA Rooms and shared in Presbytery Groups as requested. The Resource Sub Committee prepares ‘Opening Devotionals’ books. Devotionals, study resources and Christian Literature are available from PWA rooms and at annual Presbytery Group Rallies.
The annual Craft Camp is designed to bring ladies together for a weekend of Bible Talks and Worship, fellowship and sharing of craft skills.’
We also support Presbyterian Youth (PY), Special Religious Education (SRE) and Chaplains.
Christian education is here to encourage those who are bringing Christ to peoples life. The harvest is Plentiful.
Past years Opening Devotionals will be available at a special price.
