Good number met up today.
Home made cakes went down a treat.
Good company and good chats added up to a great morning.
Children's Talk: Paul wanted to obliterate Christianity. However he meets Jesus Christ. He is converted and changes into a person who preaches the Good News about Jesus. He now is persecuted and has to escape by being lowered over the city wall of Damascus in a basket.

We had a guest preacher today: Mervyn Christopher. It was great to be in church.
In the morning service. We thought about one of the outstanding members of early Christianity. He encouraged others and sold a field to help with the collection for people in need. He went on long journeys telling others about Jesus Christ. We were challenegd to be a support and encourage others.

Evening Service: We all like a fresh start from time to time. Becoming a Christian is becoming new and it never gets jaded. Christians are "in Christ": Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. It's knowing God. All this possible because of Christ's death on the cross.

Morning service: Romans 15. When it comes to enduring and being encouraged Christians find that the Bible is key. The things written there encourage us. God works in his people so that they abound in hope - be certain that God will do that he has declared.

Evening Service: Christ is raised from the dead. The body is not in the tomb. His followers are confused - they are not expecing the resurrection. He appears first to Mary Magdalene and tells her to tell the others that he will ascend back to heaven.
