    QB Kids & Families Resource: A guide for blessing your children

    God has granted us the wonderful joy and privilege of blessing our children in His name, a practice we see exemplified in Scripture. In Mark 10:16, it is written that Jesus “took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Blessing your child reinforces their sense of value within the family and in God’s eyes.

    The QB Kids & Families Team have put together a great “Guide for Blessing Your Children” and a “Blessing Card” to help families navigate and pray a prayer of blessing over their children. Check it out here:

    Here’s Pastor Tracy Valetine of QB Kids & Families, to tell us more about praying a blessing over our children.

  4. QB Launches Everyday Disciple Resources

    Comments Off on QB Launches Everyday Disciple Resources

    As our movement focuses on “Intentional Discipleship”in 2024, we are thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new series and resource at QB that we believe will deeply enrich the journey of discipleship for all our churches. It’s called “Everyday Disciple”.

    At QB, we’re passionate about fostering mature disciples who not only grow individually but also multiply their impact in their communities. And “Everyday Disciple” is designed precisely for that purpose.

    This series offers a wealth of resources tailored to empower both individuals and congregations. From full sermon manuscripts to exegetical outlines, from video messages to small group materials, we’ve curated a comprehensive toolkit to support your church’s growth.

    But it doesn’t stop there. What truly sets “Everyday Disciple” apart is its emphasis on practical, everyday discipleship practices. Inside, you’ll find devotions, spiritual disciplines, and training modules aimed at equipping every member of your congregation to engage deeply with Jesus and His word on a daily basis.

    Our vision is simple yet profound: to see lives transformed as hearts and minds are renewed by the power of God’s word and Spirit. We believe that “Everyday Disciple” has the potential to catalyze this transformation in your church and beyond.

    So, we invite you to explore this series and prayerfully consider how it could bless your congregation. Together, let’s embark on a journey of growth, multiplication, and transformation as we seek to become mature disciples who reflect the heart of Christ in all we do.

    We’re excited to see how God will move through “Everyday Disciple” across our movement, and we’re eager to partner with our churches and services on this transformative journey.

    Is Prayer Week in your Diary? – 3-9 June 2024

    We are gearing up across our movement of churches and services for Prayer Week 2024!

    Prayer Week is a significant opportunity for our movement of churches and services to unify, engage, and mobilise across the state of Queensland. Set to unfold from the 3rd to the 9th of June 2024, this week-long initiative marks a collective effort to unify our communities in fervent prayer, seeking a powerful move of God.

    During this dedicated week, the Queensland Baptist Movement will come together with a shared purpose – to pray earnestly for a profound outpouring of His Holy Spirit upon our state. In 2024 we again pray expectantly for a transformative and impactful move of God that extends across various regions of the state, where more people in more places will come to experience the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

    Let’s pray earnestly, pray expectantly, and pray in unity, that there will be a harvest of lost souls for the Kingdom of God.

    As we eagerly anticipate Prayer Week 2024, we want to keep you informed. Stay connected to the QB Hub and follow our updates on QB Social Media for forthcoming details regarding the resources and format for this year’s prayer week. We look forward to sharing more information with you soon on how you and your church can get involved in the transformative power of unified prayer during QB Prayer Week 2024.
