*We may get tired of hearing about the election coming up, because the truth is often missing. Please give our leaders the gift of honesty. We leave the decision to you. Our destiny is in your hands. We look forward to your kingdom.

Hymn 4 – Jesus Christ, I think upon your Sacrifice
Hymn 5 – I the Lord of Sea and Sky

Bible in the chapelThe Message was given by Mr.Carion on Praising God.
Our hymns have praised God today. The book of Psalms is the praise book of the Bible. Isaiah chapter 12 also tells us to Praise the Lord. Jesus told us many times to trust and not be afraid. Verse 2. Verse 4 tells us the mission of our church. To praise God and declare him to others.
Why is praising God so important? It is good. Psalm 92:1. Psalm 147:1. Sometimes David seemed to suffer from depression. Then he was lifted up. If we stumble, God picks us up. We are constantly under his mercy. When our heart is dedicated to Christ, we always want to rush back to him. Even if we are unfaithful, God remains faithful.
All of God’s creation praises him. Psalm 148. These verses can lift our hearts. We know that one day at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow. Philippians 2:10. We should be thankful for the glory of God’s grace. Ephesians 1:5-12. Read the last of the psalms. Psalm 150. Let everything that has breath, Praise the Lord! Verse 6.

The Final Hymn was Now Thank we all our God after which the Closing Prayer was given by Bill Wilson.

Fellowship continued over refreshments in the Church Hall.

The Young People’s Church today continued with the events in the life of Jesus. The young people told the story of Jesus’ last week on earth, which they pieced together from their  memory of previous lessons. The teachers were Caroline Gentil and Peter Beardsmore.
