Lost Coins and New Members- Message 3rd March 2019

In today’s All Age Service our Youth Worker, Cassie, looked at the Parable of the Lost Coin, in which a woman loses a precious coin, searches for it and celebrates its finding with friends and neighbours. After an interactive telling of the story, Cassie considered the significance of the Parable for us.

Our minister, Peter, then spoke about what it means to become a member of the Church. The congregation welcomed a number of new members.

Sunday Connections_ 03.02.2018

The astute among you may have picked up that we missed out a week of Sunday Connections. My apologies for this as it was quite a full week. On Sunday, we looked at Esther in our all age service. We will have a short Sunday Connection this week below.

Two video retellings of the story of Esther can be found HERE and HERE

To Think Together: Esther was a women of courage, who had to trust in God to bring her through a scary situation. What does it look like to be a person of courage as a Christian in 2019 in Scotland? How about in Iran or North Korea?

Word Wall: Across the week, think of some positive attributes about your children and teens, add these to there door or other place they will see on post it notes. What were Esther’s positive attributes? Thank God for the way he has made each and every one of us.
