Next Sunday will be our (online) Harvest celebration and although we can’t meet together we do want to make this a really meaningful service. We want to include as many of you as possible in the service and so, in this week’s news sheet we will be inviting you to join us in several different ways.

Firstly by contributing to our food collection for Food bank. Secondly by taking place in the great bread making challenge or the pie/crumble challenge or even the beauty of God’s creation challenge.

Intrigued – then read your news sheet carefully!

After the debacle in the A level results, aren’t you glad God doesn’t grade us using an algorithm to see if we are “worthy” of saving?
We deserve nothing from God but judgment, but in His grace, He offers mercy and full pardon to the one who trusts in the shed blood of Jesus Christ to wash himself clean.
Never forget that salvation and everything that we have comes from God as a free gift by His grace. Hallelujah.

Series – Hidden Heroes of the Bible – Part 3 – Dorcas

Welcome

Welcome to our midweek worship service where we will be continuing with our series on hidden heroes of the Bible. This week will be thinking about an ordinary woman who served God by doing ordinary things – much as many of you do. It is inspirational story that hopefully will inspire us all in our quest to serve the Lord in these difficult times.

Worship song – My hope is built on nothing less (Cornerstone).

Worship song – All I once held dear.

Reading Acts 9:36 – 43

Sermon – Dorcas – An ordinary hardworking woman.

Worship song – Here is love, vast as the ocean

Blessing to close

May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5-6

The weather over the last few days has changed dramatically as we have moved from wall to wall sunshine to an overcast sky. The rather dark morning today reminds me that we are meant to be light – whatever the weather. For in Ephesians 5:8 we are reminded that “For you were once darkness, but now you are the light in the Lord. Live as children of light.” So this weekend, why not really try to bring the light into your neighbourhood.

Blessing to close

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favour and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:3-6

AMEN

Although God has already done many amazing things for us, we sometimes still struggle to grasp that we need need His power in our lives if we are to be the people He wants us to be. Consequently, this week, why not pray that you may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (Eph 3:17-18); and that you may then use that power to spread the Gospel?
