Children's Talk: Jesus Christ claims to be the Good Shepherd. Using the old favourite of blankety blank we put this Bible verse together and learnt it.
Morning Service: 1 Samuel 2:22-36. The priests have despised the Lord's blessings. He will judge them fairly and appropriately for this. It is a dreadful thing to keep on opposing the Lord and standing up to him
Evening Service: Ephesians 2:8, One of the Bible's great teachings is that God breaks into our hoplessness (spiritual death due to our sin) because of his grace. He loves and shows favour to undeserving sinners. We know that this is true because Jesus Christ dies for us.
"Quiet but nice" describes our time this morning. Plenty of interesting discussion about Dafen history amongst other things (i.e. the row of houses once situated near the pond).
Our "thought for the day" concentrated on Jesus' telling us that the second greatest commmandment was "love your neighbour as yourself". Try as we might we can never reach this standard. How glorious to know that Jesus Christ, as Saviour, dies for every shortcoming (sin) in the lives of those who trust him.
Children's Talk: Prayer is "speaking"to God. We can say prayers, sing prayers and think prayers. We can pray anywhere confident that God hears our prayers in Jesus' name.
Evening Service: To help Christians in Colossae being kidnapped into a religion where Jesus Christ isn't central and supreme Paul prays that they be filled with the knowledge of God's will. He prays that they will know and understand more of the Good News about Jesus and God's blessings in the Gospel
Our harvest supper went well. As they did in Bible times we met, had a simple meal (fish and chips from Migels) and gave thanks to God.
Our speaker was John Treharne: he explained the Good News about Jesus and outlined how important it is to believe this Good News.
A good time was had by all
Good to meet up this morning. Home made scones were on offer and they went down a treat
Our Thought for the Day was: There are many laws making up British Law and it's difficult to decide which one is the most important. When it comes to us and God Jesus says that the greatest commandment is to "Love the Lord you God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength".
