Our meeting at Coatbridge this week was very good. Around 25 folks gathered with one new person among us. We began with a time of song and praise. This was followed by a testimony from one of our young adults to salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Our pastor, Diana Rutherford, preached from Matthew's gospel from the part where Christ cleansed the temple, healed the sick and the children rejoiced with shouting. She related it to how He can cleanse, heal and cause us to rejoice today! A lovely worship time followed and a word was given encouraging us to allow Christ to shelter us in His safe and gentle presence.
In Airdrie a smaller number gathered. After a time of singing led by Christine, Rae brought the word from Luke 8:13. There was a very quiet, deep Presence of God with us throughout the evening. After a time of worship we had a short intercessory prayer time for the work in Airdrie.
