Church News Sunday 17th September

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF meet at 10.50am today. There is a Crèche for pre-school children each Sunday morning.

PRAYER GROUP  Prayer meetings continue on Wednesday mornings at 10am in the Church hall. Prayer is the essential powerhouse of the Church, and your participation would be greatly valued. The small group is very friendly, and there is no pressure to pray aloud if you do not wish to. The group is happy to pray for concerns of the congregation, whether for individuals or on wider issues. Please place any prayers requests in the box in the Church vestibule.

PASTORAL CARE We have dedicated people on the Team who are willing to be of assistance. Give us a call either contacting your elder or the coordinator, Janette Steele (01349 861591). Please remember to give as much notice for appointments as possible to allow arrangements to be made.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The group meets each Wednesday at 1.30pm in the Church hall for approximately one hour. The book being studied this session is Daniel and the series is entitled ” Living Boldly for God”. Do think about coming along to read, study and discuss the relevance of God’s Word for us today. Look forward to seeing you there.

FERINTOSH FOCUS Copies of the September edition of the Ferintosh Focus are available in the annex for those who distribute them.

CROSSREACH An example of the latest Wall Calendar for 2018 is available at the rear of the Church (after service in Hall). There is a list for names for orders either for the wall calendar or the appointments calendar which has the same views. The wall calendar is a very reasonable £5 and the appointments one £4.50.  A few copies of the catalogue are to hand for anyone who wants to order other Christmas items. By getting the order in early we should be able to have the calendars to hand for posting abroad.

HARVEST THANKSGIVING The Harvest Thanksgiving will be held next  Sunday 24th September. The Church and hall will be open on Saturday 23rd from 9.30am to receive flowers and foliage for decorating the Church. If you can help in ANY way please come along – you do NOT need to be a flower arranger!  The flowers will be distributed immediately following the morning service.  Contact Jeannette Cameron 01463 870416. At Harvest Thanksgiving this year, instead of bringing items of food for the local foodbank, the congregation is asked to donate in a retiring offering to the Elderly Feeding Programme in Viyele Congregation in Malawi. This is a programme Ferintosh congregation has supported in the past, but it is some time since we did so. As it is not possible at the present time to send goods to Malawi, the Session decided on this retiring offering instead. For more details about the Elderly Feeding Programme, see Ferintosh Focus.
