COMMUNITY EASTER BUFFET 24 MARCH
Some 100 adults and children attended this outreach event where the message of the gospel was clearly presented and people challenged to commit their lives to Jesus.
Some were clearly touched by the message and we claim God’s promise that His word will not return void but will accomplish its purposes.
Our prayer is that God’s Spirit will continue to work on people lives and that some will seek and find the peace and joy of sins forgiven.
Please pray with us.
We would like to sincerely thank all who made this evening possible. Members who provided and served the meal, who prepared and cleared the hall, who looked after the crèche and the children, who invited friends and neighbours and who prayed for this event.
Rom 15 v13- May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, and may you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Thanks, Nora McKnight, Norman Allison & Angus Cuthbert
