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.
Children's Talk: The story of the floating axe-head. Elisha the prophet is enabled to make an axe-head lots in the river to float so that the person who borrowed the axe could return it to its owner.
Morning Service: (1 Samuel 29): David finds himself in a very difficult situation. However the LORD's remarkable power in being able to use anything to fulfill his purposes gets David out of a dilemma. The LORD never compromises his standards of holiness but will use anything/anyone is his care for his people.
Evening Service: (Matthew 7:13-14) Jesus told us that there two eternal destinations that we are all heading towards i.e. Destruction or Life. The way to life is hard and narrow. Living in this way exposes Christians to reproach, scorn and denying self. Yet the Lord Jesus assures us that the narrow and hard way leads to life
Children's Talk: Using "Blankety Blank we learnt this BIbl;e verses "With God all thimngs are possible". (Gyda Duw y mae pob peth yn bosibl).
Morning Service (1 Samuel 28): Saul the king keeps on refusing to wholeheartedly obey the LORD. The LORD judges by not answering his prayer. Saul keeps on rejecting the LORD and his warnings He becomes a most desperate person.
Good time was had by all again today. Plenty of tea, coffee, homemade scones and chat.
Thought For The Day: The lost being found is a picture that the Bible uses to describe coming to know God through Jesus Christ. When a sinner repents there is great rejoicing in heaven
Children's talk: Moses and Aaron tell the king (Pharoah) that God wants his people to be set free. Pharoah rejects the LORD's word despite the LORD showing his power: as Aaron's staff turns into a snake.
Mornings Service: 1 Samuel 27. David doubts the LORD's power to keep him from harm. He doubts and so makes rash decisions. He is at a low point but the LORD will not desert him
Evening Service:, (Matthew 7:12)This is the "golden rule": do to other what you would have them do to you. Another of the Lord Jesus' challenging statements about the Christian life. he sets the bar high for those who confess him to be Saviour and Lord
