Children's Talk: Following a display of the LORD's great power as 10 plagues devastated Egypt, Phaoroah let the Israelites go free. He soon regretted this and chased the defenceless Israelities to the shores of the Red Sea. The only way for the Israelites to escape was through the Sea. The LORD opens the Sea, they cross in safety but the Egyptins army was drowned. The people then knew that the LORD is God.
Morning Service: Ephesians 2:8. "Grace alone" is one of the great principles taught in the Bible. Sinners who are dead in transgressions and sins are given know life and forgiveness through Jesus Christ because of God's grace. We therefore cannot boast in our own achievements
Evening Service: (1Timothy 2;5-6) "Christ Alone" is one of the great themes of the Bible. Pardon for our sins and all blessings given to us by God and through Christ alone. It is through Christ alone that our prayers, worship and service are made acceptable to God. We don't need a human mediator as Jesus Christ does the work perfectly.
Children's Talk: God's people through the wicked king, Ahab, turn from him to worship Baal. Elijah the prophet challenges Baal's priests. They and he will build alters to their respective gods.The God who answers their prayers with fire is the true and living God. Baal cannot respond to the prayers of the priests. Elijah prays and the LORD answers with fire. The people respond, "The LORD he is God"
Morning Service: (1 John 1:5-10). To have fellowship with God, who is light, through Jesus Christ is the greatest experience for each of us. This fellowship is on God's terms: the people in fellowship with him must not live lives motivated by self and evil (walk in darkness) but seek to walk in the light (live as God commands). However when Christians fall they have God who is faithful to forgive (because of Jesus' blood) to turn to.
Evening Service: (2 Timothy 3:16-17). "Scripture Alone" is one part of the motto of the Protestant Reformation. The Bible is God's word given to us. It makes us wise for salvation: showing us that we need saving from our sins through the Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Bible is the Christian's final authority for faith and lifestyle.
A nice number got together again this morning and enjoyed plenty of tea, coffee and homemade "goodies".
In our Thought For The Day we considered Jesus' great challenge that one day everything will be disclosed (even the idle words that we have said). The Bible declares that to be ready for that great day we need to put our faith in Jesus Christ.
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.
