News and Coming Events (D.V.)
The first Sunday in October is scheduled for the Communion in Strath, but unfortunately the preacher we were hoping to come has had to pull out due to ill health. Please pray from Calum Macmillan (assistant minister at Rosskeen) who needs to learn, as all young ministers do, to pace himself. Gordon hopes to have a preacher arranged to come to the congregation for the first weekend in December, which would be our next communion date anyway.
Teens Group meets at the manse tonight after the Joint Service – so about 7:30pm. (Please not this is a bit later the usual time of 7:00pm.)
The Sunday school is closed for the next three weeks due to school holidays. However, there will still be crèche facilities for younger children, and we would be delighted if folks carried on attending as normal.
Over the last year or so, the Kirk Session has been looking at running a membership class for people considering membership in the congregation. This will be over three sessions, looking at:
- What is a Church “member” anyway?
- What privileges do members have?
- What responsibilities do members have?
We do not yet have dates for this class, but would like to hear from anyone who thinks they would benefit from this. It would particularly benefit people thinking about professing faith, but is perhaps confused by some issues, like the connection between “profession” and “membership”.
