Great to be in Maescanner last Sunday. We had two guest preachers
Morning Service [Guest Preacher: James Hughes]- [Psalm 24} To be able to "ascend" to God we must have inward purity and perfect behaviour. Only Jesus Christ, who is the King of Glory, has ever achieved this. Yet we can "ascend" to God though faith in Jesus as God gives to us the righteousness of Christ when we believe.
Evening Service [Guest Preacher: Roger Bale]
A rich, young, law abiding young man asks Jesus how he can get eternal life. Jesus probes deep with some penetrating questioning. and reveals that the rich, young man isn't really sincere in his love for God. The young man goes away sad.

The selection of homemade cooking available continues to increase and be of a great standard. Thank you for all contributions.
We had a good time this morning meeting and chatting. Warm welcome to all. Please join us.
Children's Talk: Using everyday objects - torch, candle, light house, traffic lights, sun etc, we focused on Jesus' great claim: "I am the light of the world"
Morning Service: Acts 13. Paul and Barnabas sail to Cyprus and then onto Antioch. "Paul's First Missionary Journey" has begun. Many will hear and believe the Gospel: Jesus Christ is God's promised Messiah.
Evening Service, The 10 Commandments, part 5 - 9th and 10th Commandments. You shall not bear false witness & you shall not covet. Respect the truth and always say the truth. Be satisfied with God's provision, then we won't crave things in an unhealthy way. Always remember that God gave his law so that we recognise the fact that we need a saviour - Jesus Christ.
Superb home cooking once again available; sausage rolls, strawberry flan and cup cakes. Thank you for contributions. These with good quality tea, coffee and good company all made for a lovely morning. Nice to see somebody joining us for the first time on a Thursday morning. Warm welcome to all to call in for a cuppa
Morning Service; Acts chapter 12. Christians face terrible persecution in Jerusalem, one of them is executed. Herod, who heads the persecution is "struck down". Through it all the word of the Lord multiplies and increases.
Evening Service: God commands you shall not murder, commit adultery or steal. This is part of what it means to love your neighbour as yourself.
Respect life, marriage and others' property.
Interestingly Jesus Christ uses commandments 6+7 to emphasise that we can break these commandments by thinking the act. Sin is more than just doing; it's also thinking and feeling
We had a great day out. In the short service before we got on the bus we concentrated on these words from 1 Peter 1:
All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains for ever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.
The short bus ride took us to Rhossili, where cream teas went down a treat. Then to the "Bridge" in Llangennech for a carvery. A good time was had by all.
Childrens' Talk; To day was an object lesson - a torch can only light up when working batteries are used. Only jesus Christ can light up our hearts with God's light. He is the light of the world.
Evening Service: The fifth of the 10 commandments - "Honour your father and mother". Children are called on to honour their parents in all that they do. Parents must make sure that they are worthy of their children's honour. Try and we might the best of us can never reach God's standards. God law and commands point us to Jesus Christ.
