Around 30 people gathered for the latest in our series of Family Services this morning.
This time David Hedges was at the helm chairing and opened with the hymn Be Still for the presence of the Lord and prayer.
This was followed by What kind of love is this before introducing this month’s memory verse Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding – Proverbs 3:5. Audience participation was encouraged with both heart and lean!
We then enjoyed a number of the children’s choruses from Sunday Club before Alan Michael came to speak.
Alan’s subject this month was the Healing at the Pool of Bethesda taken from John 5 and he began with looking at the purpose of different signs before linking this in to Jesus’ miracle of the healing of the lame man and the fact that it was a sign for the Leaders. He finished by summarising the miracle using the six questions ‘What?‘, ‘Who?‘. ‘Where?‘, ‘When?‘, ‘How?‘ and ‘Why?‘, leaving the final question unanswered for those gathered to think about.
We finished with the singing of I stand amazed in the presence and prayer.
After the service, Alan showed a number of amusing photos from the recent TVCC camp in Romsey.
Our next Family Service will be on July 3rd at 11.30am and will be followed by a BBQ.
