Annual appeal launched for 2019
30 May 2019
This year's annual appeal material is currently being sent out to Lutheran congregations and parishes Australia-wide. The packages should arrive in the post or via an ALC staff member, student or willing volunteer in the next week or so. If your package does not arrive, please let the Principal’s Office at ALC know via email: email@example.com. Likewise, if your congregation requires more envelopes than those that have been sent, please let us know.
The theme for this year’s appeal is ‘All Things New’. It is taken from Revelation 21:5 (with Isaiah 43:19 and Isaiah 65:17 in the background). In both cases, these bible readings were written against the background of upheaval, uncertainty and even despair. The earth was shifting under people’s feet and they desperately needed hope. Into that uncertainty and despair God promised life and hope.
At ALC, we are certain that God’s promise of life and hope are as real today. As the earth shifts under our feet and we feel wobbly as we face financial pressures and uncertain times, we are certain that God is making a new thing among us through the power of the Gospel. God’s promises are at work. We know that.
With that certainty and confidence, you are invited to partner with ALC in this year’s appeal. Your gifts to us matter. They will allow us to continue to serve in partnership with you; they encourage us; and they remind us of the hope that is ours in Jesus Christ. Your gifts are a living witness to that.
