Church News Sunday 8th October

SUNDAY CLUB AND FYF Sunday Club and FYF meet at 10.50am today after which they are on holiday until 29th October. 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  If you need some help either around the house or to be taken to an appointment, please contact the Team. You can do this either by contacting your elder or by contacting Anne Mackay (01349 861909) and we will try our best to be of assistance. Please allow time for arrangements to be made.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY The group meets each Wednesday in the small Hall at 1.30pm for approximately an hour. Daniel is the book which is being studied this session using the Cover to Cover notes entitled “Living Boldly for God” Do give serious consideration to coming along to read and study God’s word. A very warm welcome awaits you.

KIRK SESSION The next meeting of the Kirk Session will be on Thursday 19th October at 7.00pm and it will meet in the Church hall. Minutes and Agendas are available to uplift now. Elders who get their Minutes and Agenda by email should have received them by now.  Members of the congregation are welcome to attend Kirk Session Meetings as observers but are not allowed to contribute to any discussions that take place unless invited to do so by the Chairperson. Also, from time to time observers may be asked to leave a meeting if any items of Restricted Business are on the Agenda.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe will be held in the Church hall on Wednesday 11th October from 2pm-3.30pm. Why not drop in (even for a few minutes) for some tea/coffee and home baking, while enjoying the all important chat? We look forward to having your company.

CROSSREACH The Calendars and some cards which have been ordered are now available for uplifting from the annex. No money is required at this stage.

HIGHLAND FOODBANK Don’t forget the foodbank over the “tattie” holidays. Your donations are needed more than ever. Please just add an item extra to your shopping each week. It makes such a difference to the lives of people in our local area.

FLOWER CALENDAR The Flower Team would like to thank everyone who has been involved this past year with the Sunday flowers, the Easter daffodils and the Harvest Thanksgiving.  We are very grateful for all your help in any way and I am sure the congregation appreciates the beautiful displays.  At the time of writing there are still three spaces left in the 2018 Flower Calendar. If you can possibly help please put your name and contact number down on the list, which is on the table at the back of the church.  It is not necessary; though always welcome, to do the flowers in an arrangement. There are a selection of vases available in the annex of the church.  If possible, please try to avoid using lilies as some people can to be allergic to them.  The flowers/arrangement can be uplifted following the service and are yours to keep/distribute as you wish.  Donations are also always welcome towards our Flower Fund, which can help with our larger events. Contact Jeannette Cameron 01463 870416

PASTORAL DUTIES Rev’d Russel Smith can be contacted on 861011 if required for any Pastoral duties.
