Toddlers Update

by Struthers Cumbernauld


A quieter session with 18 children joining us for our Easter themed morning. During our free play session many of the children decorated eggs. Annette told the older boys and girls the story of Jesus' last week on earth using little objects hidden inside eggs. The children listened very well.

Rosemary took the little ones for singing. We followed snack by hunting for eggs in the shop.  We finished off our time together by going outside and rolling the decorated eggs down the hill beside the car park. We resume after the school holidays on Monday 24th April.


Friday youthwork

by Struthers Cumbernauld


We had around 25 kids at our youth club tonight. We began with a song before watching a short animation of children telling the Easter story and talking about why Jesus died on the cross. Tiffies then spoke of the importance of spending time over the Easter holidays remembering what Jesus has done for us. We then rotated round stations where we made a Holy Week calendar, decorated biscuits and took part in an Easter egg hunt.


In our student zone Mel started off with some games. We were pleased to have a new girl along tonight. Mark came along tonight and gave a very good testimony. Zander rounded this up before we turned to have a time of prayer and worship.


Midweek outreach meetings

by Struthers Cumbernauld


 Motherwell

We had a good time of singing this week to begin our meeting. People were in great voice. Our Bible Study this week looked at David's relationship with Saul and his son Jonathan. We discussed how David maintained respect for Saul because he was the Lord's anointed despite Saul having turned against God and was pursuing David around the country. We also discussed how, like David and Jonathan, God can give us friendships that are to be valued and treasured.

We closed with a time of worship and there was a deep sense of the quietness of God resting on the meeting as we closed.

 

Airdrie

Another good meeting at Airdrie this week.  All were in good voice as John led the singing. A couple of folks shared some reports then Rae spoke from the Lord's prayer and some other verses around the Kingdom of God. We then had a very good worship time and also joined in prayer that new folks would come from the Airdrie area.

 

 Coatbridge

We had a smaller gathering in Coatbridge this week. The update from people seemed to have a theme running through it around the challenges in sharing their faith in the workplace. We rejoiced at the news of Jim and Mima's grandson getting out of hospital. 

The Word given was about 'being filled' and the promise of Christ to fill us to be His witnesses.  We were encouraged to try and remain being filled - by being obedient to God, to cleave to him and to seek His will. 

We closed in prayer before a time of fellowship over tea and cakes.

Another fun filled noisy session at toddlers this morning.  We had 27 children and 26 adults.  Tipu joined us for a visit and helped Brian with games, Morag told the story of Emma's lamb, Rosemary took the singing for the wee ones and Sara helped the older children make Mother's Day cards. We also had two birthdays to celebrate today with birthday cake for all.
