Children's Talk: Pharoah, the king of Egypt, refuses to let the Israelites go free in spite of being shown the power of the LORD. This was futile and led to Egypt being decimated and the Israelites set free.
Morning Service: John 3, Steve Tucker (our guest preacher) reminded us that no matter who we are we can have an audience with Jesus Christ. Nicodemus, a very religious man, is told by the Lord Jesus that it's faith in him that counts and not trusting religion.
Evening Service: Matthew 7:24-27. The Lord Jesus ends the Sermon on the Mount. He with authority tells us that to hear him and do his words is spiritual wisdom whilst to hear and ignore his words is spiritual foolishness
Ladies Meeting 11th October 2017. From Fear To Faith! Our speaker was Janet Price. God speaks to Moses, the shepherd, from the burning bush and tells him to go and lead his people out of Egypt. Moses was is fear but the promise that the LORD would be with him led Moses to show faith in God and obey him. Moses to able to accomplish the LORD's will
Children's Talk: We started learning a new memory verse - "The LORD, he is God", "Yr Arglwydd sydd Dduw".
Morning Service: 1 John 1:1-4, Jesus Christ is the Word of Life: the full and compete revelation from God bringing eternal life into our souls. When people believe in him they are brought into fellowship with the Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.
Evening Service: Matthew 7:21-23 (part 2). The Lord Jesus drives home the point that a religion based on being confident in the things that we achieve will not be acceptable when we stand before him on the Day of Judgement. The will of the Father is to believe in the one whom he has sent. Christians are poor in spirit, they know that they have nothing to give God and so trust Jesus Christ. Faith in him then leads to living for him.
Tea, Coffee, Chat 5/10/2017
Lovely turnout on Thursday. Great homemade cake and plenty of chat. In our Thought For The Day we considered that the LORD who is the help of his people never sleeps: his care is constant
Children's Talk: Pharoah, king of Egypt, in his pride refused to let God's people go. he was shown the power of the LORD through the plagues God sent on Egypt but his heart remained hard, stubborn and proud. He agreed to let the people go but went back on his word. How dreadful to remain proud before God and break our promises.
Morning Service: 1 Samuel 6: God's people will always face hard times (tribulations). Yet because of their very real relationship with the LORD they can strengthen themselves in him and pray, reminding themselves of the LORD's power and promises. He is the sovereign LORD and no circumstance is greater than him
Evening Service: Matthew 7:21-23. These challenging words spoken by the Lord Jesus warn us of being confident in a false religion. He tells us that true religion is to be known by him and that we know him. To know God and the one whom he has sent is real and genuine Christianity. We must never be confident in our own achievements but trust Jesus Christ alone.
A nice, pleasant morning was had by all. There was an extensive range of delicious homemade cakes today and they went down a treat. In our Thought For The Day we concentrated on God knowing all things. This is an encouragement and also a challenge to us. The encouragement is that when we go through difficult times God knows. The challenge is that he knows every detail of four lives, including our emotions.
Children's Talk: Many years ago there was only one language in our world and the human race built a huge tower in opposition to God. God stopped them in their tracks by causing people to speak in different languages.
Morning Service: Our guest preacher was David Powell. He reminded us of the importance that as Christians we allow the word of Christ to dwell in our hearts richly
Evening Service: The Lord Jesus warns his people about false prophets. They try to deceive by being ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing. Their aim is not the glory of God but to take people away from believing and trusting Jesus Christ.
Children's Talk: We continued with the theme of "with God all things are possible". Elisha the prophet calls out to the LORD and a dead lad is raised to life.
Morning Service: Saul, Israel's king dies on the battlefield. He had been blessed in extraordinary ways but chose to despise the LORD and his word. Saul is a warning to us to take the LORD's word seriously.
"Nice to see people back from hols!", was the comment made by many. The home-made scones with plenty of chat, washed down with tea and coffee made for a good and friendly morning. Jesus claim to be the only way was our 'Thought For The Day'.
Children's Talk: Elisha the prophet performs a miracle that enables a widow who was in debt to obtain a large supply of olive oil. She is able to sell this oil, and clear her debts. With God all things are possible.
Morning Service: David is at a low point (fleeing from the king and his own men want to stone him). He strengthens himself in the LORD his God. The LORD is the unfailing father and friend to all who trust him.
Evening Service: Matthew 7:13-14. Jesus Christ declares that there is only one way to get onto the narrow path that leads to life i.e. the narrow gate. Jesus clearly points us to himself as being the way to the Father and the only name under heaven by which we can be saved.
A good time was had by all. The lemon cake went down a treat. Plenty of chat!
Thought For The Day - how thrilling to know that through the death of Jesus Christ we can have peace with God.
Our "guest" preachers today were Andrew Thomas and Greg Francis.
Morning Service (Andrew Thomas): Jesus chose a real mixed bag to be his disciples. Yet this group (in spite of their personal weaknesses) became the people who fulfilled Jesus' command: go and tell others. (Regretfully the recording of this sermon did not work)
Evening Service (Greg Francis): Revelation 20. The age long struggle between good and evil will results in the final defeat of evil. God through Jesus Christ will triumph and sin, death and evil will be finally defeated. We are warned to prepare for the final judgement.
TEA, COFFEE, CHAT 24TH AUGUST 2017
Even though quite a few of the regulars were on holiday there was plenty of tea, coffee and chat. Greg (Thought For The Day) reminded us of the certain return of Jesus Christ to our world and the necessity to be ready for this momentous event.
