Reading: Sueann read Romans 8:33

Hymn 3 – Wonderful Grace
Hymn 4 – The Wonder of your Mercy Lord

Reading: Kevin read Matthew 25:31-46 which was the introduction of the main message.

The Message was given by Irene Wilson who began by playing a piece of music relating to the King is alive. She said sometimes things have a catch… It is important to follow the Lord, and having a good foundation. We need to share time with one another, and that Jesus is with us. Our Salvation is a gift, having compassion for all, to serve others, Jesus served others, and we need to watch for opportunities to serve. Irene also read, James 4:17 and John 3:17 Jesus is it ! and a day of Salvation is coming. Irene hit home by saying – When will it be ? and What will it be ? ! A day of mercy when Christ will return. Acts 2:7 and Mark 13.32 Having the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. She also read Matthew 27.51 and Luke 24.2. In closing Irene said lets be humble and grateful for everything.

The Final Hymn was Rejoice the Lord is King after which James Esom closed the service in prayer.

Refreshments and Fellowship followed the Service

Young People’s Church met during the Sermon time and was taught by Richard Fowler. Today, we explored the existence of God. Did this universe come from nothing? What about life? Has it been designed or did it develop by chance? In this discussion, we will built spaghetti and marshmallow towers and we also each got a Kinder Egg! How does this activity and egg tell us whether there is a God or not? Through fun and discussion we see that we, as humans, are very special and valued by our Creator and Maker God. Young Adults Church meets most weeks during the Sermon time at our regular Saturday Service. Why not come and have fun with us?
