Church Ministries


Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.

Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.

The Church

You will have noticed recently there has been great attention focussed on the church and what it represents. The focus is mainly on the great buildings and hierarchy rather than looking at the people and the Bible. The instruction of the Lord Jesus Christ was to take what he had taught to people of ever nation and He would be with us to the very end of the age. It is that message of the gospel that permeates the letters of the New Testament. It is that truth that turned the world upside down, with the apostles not taking their lead from the leaders of the day but looking to be obedient to God. We respect the powers that are established by God, praying for them that we may live quiet and peaceful lives in all godliness and holiness. As we do let the people of the church be known for their love of Christ their head, their fellow believers and love for those who need to know peace with God through that same Jesus Christ.

Prayer

Please continue to remember in your prayers those who are unable to meet with us as they would wish due to illness or infirmity. Pray especially for David and Ella McAlpine at this time of change. Pray to for Hugh Wallace and Ena Dickson.


Remember the Christmas appeal for Ray and Trixie

Ian and Marilyn Campbell

Some items for prayer have been issued by Echoes of Services for Ian and Marilyn serving the Lord in Zambia. Prayer would be valued for the work at Chingola Bible Centre. They have been encouraged by the wide use of these facilities, the library, the seminar room for meetings, people arriving to collect Emmaus courses and others to buy books and bibles from the Centre bookshop. Pray that they are able to provide enough books and Bibles to meet the demand.



Christmas

Whether we like it or not it this is now the time to prepare for Christmas. It has been good once to be involved in the Shoe Box Appeal with Samaritan's Purse. A special thank you to Robert McCaig for being the Bethany coordinator and ensuring the safe handover of the twenty two boxes collected. Pray for each box that the child who will ultimately receive the gift on Christmas day that they will be blessed both materially and spiritually. Everyone was greatly touched by the scenes from the DVD that helped us to understand the great need in this diverse world in which we serve God.

There are always plenty of materials available from the Christian retailers either in the shop on the High Street or Online that we would do well to support. A book worthy of mention is, The Incredible Journey, Christmas from Genesis to Jesus, by Steve Brady, daily readings for the Christmas season. There is also a range of Christmas music ranging from Keith and Kristyn Getty to The David Crowder Band.

The authorities that exist have been established by God.
