Bon Accord Bulletin 5th December 2021

 

Services:

Services, for those not attending the church in person, can be found by logging in to the Bon Accord Free Church web site, bafreechurch.org.uk and then clicking “sermons” followed by “live sermons” or by logging on live.bafreechurch.org.uk. Both morning and evening services will be live streamed.

 

The services this weekend will be conducted by the minister, Rev. Joe Hall.

The Scripture passage for the morning service will be Ruth 2 (The Kindness of the Redeemer), and the passage for the evening service will be Luke 1:26-56 (A Promised Son, the Promised Saviour).

 

There will be neighbourhood fellowships this week. Group leaders will send out details during the week.

 

Tea and coffee will be served after both services. Please follow the direction of those serving and take care when moving with hot drinks. Please avoid clogging up the area around the hatch and move away as soon as you have been served.

 

New Song:

This Sunday I hope to introduce a new song for us to sing as a congregation, 'Immanuel'. A recording can be found through this link if you would like to familiarise yourself ahead of Sunday. From the Squalor of A Borrowed Stable (Immanuel) - YouTube

Sunday School and Teens Christmas Party:

Next Saturday (11 December), we have the Sunday School and Teens Joint Christmas Party. Starting at 2:30pm, in the downstairs hall, there will be lots of games, food and a visit from a special someone! 

The Sunday School party will finish at 5pm and the teens will continue with a Christmas movie, finishing at 9pm. Primary 6 & 7 children are invited to join the teens party for their movie night after the Sunday School party is finished. 

Please speak to either Hannah, Enid, Cassia or David if you have any questions.  

 

Christmas Carol Service:

Our annual Christmas Carol Service will be on 12 December at 6pm (the usual Sunday evening service). This is a great opportunity to invite non-Christian friends or people you know, to hear the good news of Jesus and sing with us as we celebrate his birth. Invitation flyers will be available at church this Sunday - be thinking and praying about who you might ask to come along!

Having advertised for a congregational administrator last month, the Session is pleased to let you know that Judy Laing has been appointed to this role. We thank God for all those who applied, and look forward prayerfully to the work the Lord will do in the life of our church through this development. We pray every blessing for Judy and her family as she begins this valuable work.
