Midweek meetings

by Struthers Cumbernauld


 Airdrie

A very good meeting at Airdrie this week. John led some singing, including some older choruses which were great. Rae spoke from scattered verses from Nehemiah around the makeover that was given to the broken wall in Jerusalem. We can often find that our spiritual walls have been battered and are badly in need of repair. We were encouraged to start to clear away any rubble to make a clear pathway for our Lord to start rebuilding our walls for His glory. Equipped with the weapons He has provided and with Him by our side the work can and will be accomplished. There followed a beautiful worship time with a message in tongues and interpretation.  The Airdrie meeting will be off now until after the summer holidays. It will be starting back on 17th August. God Bless!

The meeting began with our usual time of up to date reports from everyone.  There was a real sense of folks being very honest, some on the mountains and some in the valleys.

Carol spoke from Psalm 91 focusing on "The sufficency of Christ."  Amazingly this was the Psalm that came to her before she heard any of the reports from the group.

There was such a lovely feeling of the group encouraging  each other and sharing our own experiences on life's journey.  Carol encouraged the group to "stand firm and trust in Him for refuge."

We ended the meeting with a beautiful  time of singing and ministry, the presence of Christ was very tangible amongst us.

Our meeting this week kicked off with some audience participation in the form of a few of our folks leading their chosen chorus. This worked well and helped encourage those doing the choosing. Very quickly we found that same presence of God we're used to in our midst. Rae then brought some verses which spoke of the hope which is found in the love of God for the salvation of souls.  We then had a very good prayer time before finishing with a lovely time of worship to Him who is so worthy of all our praise.


Toddlers update

After a brief free play session, we all went through to the church to have our prize giving ceremony. We sang some choruses and each child received a book.

Next we had some party games in the coffee shop.

Lots of party food was eaten before our 8 birthday children received their gifts and cards.

This was our last meeting of the summer and we resume in August after the schools resume.


Friday youthwork

by Struthers Cumbernauld


We had just under 30 children tonight, including two children moving up from our Toddler group. Tiffies began with some singing with some help from Lauren. The pre-school and P1 children then went out with Marianne and Kayleigh for some parachute games before Marianne spoke about Father's Day and how God is our Father. Tiffies asked children to answer questions about each other to find out how well they know each other. She then spoke about how we build relationships and the importance of continuing to build our friendship with Jesus over the summer. We then had arts and crafts organised by Stacy and games organised by Davy and Heather.

In our student zone Mel began with some games. We then split into a younger group with Tiffies and Kayleigh, middle group with Leah and Davy and our young adults with Graeme. All groups had very beneficial discussions about what it means to abide in the vine from John 15 and practical ways we can do this. There were lots of great questions asked. We closed in prayer in our groups before having a small birthday celebration for one of our young adults. It was a very good night all in.
