ON SUNDAY 29 August the Granite Belt Uniting Church celebrated Blue Care Sunday at their church in Stanthorpe.
Personal invitations were sent to all staff, committee members, volunteers and clients.
During the service, members of each of these groups participated, commencing with Service Manager Sandra Bamberry lighting a blue candle to represent the special role of Blue Care.
Rev Alan Baker, Chaplain of Blue Care at Gold Coast/Tweed Region gave the message and reminded those present that we are never too old for God to use us and our talents to work for him.
There have been many changes since the early days of 1965 but one thing that has not changed is the wonderful work ethic and the willingness to go the extra mile.
John Morrison, chairman of the Blue Care committee, thanked all present for their support and thanked everyone for attending.
Morning tea followed the service.
The Granite Belt Uniting Church thanked Blue Care Queensland for the support given to the service and the resources supplied to make this a special time for Blue Care and the Church.
