Bon Accord Bulletin 7th November 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 John 4:43-54 ('Sign 2: A Life-Giving Word'), and the passage for the evening service will be Jonah 1:1-17 ('To the Ends of the Earth?).

 

Next Sunday, our morning service will be taken by Rev Donald Martin, and our evening service by our minister Rev Joe Hall.

 

There will be neighbourhood fellowships this week. The details for these groups are sent out by the group leaders during the week.

 

Tea and coffee will be served after both services from the hatch at the back of the main hall and from the table at the front of the sanctuary. 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.

 

In our morning service on Sunday 28 November, Neil Robert Bremner, son of JB and Sarah, will be baptised.

 

The Lord's Supper will now be shared in the evening service on Sunday 28 November. If you are considering becoming a member of Bon Accord on this occasion, or professing faith for the first time, please contact Joe.

Shoebox Appeal:

A huge thanks to all who donated shoeboxes for this year’s Blythswood Christmas Shoebox Appeal. Thanks also to all who donated bags of essential items or donated money so that items could be purchased to make up lots more boxes. We managed to make up 74 boxes from Bon Accord which is incredible. As with past years, we also collected boxes from Gilcomston Church, Maryculter Trinity Church and St Ternan’s Episcopal Church in Muchalls and so in total we sent off 159 shoeboxes which will be making their way to poor families in Eastern Europe over the coming weeks. These will be very welcome gifts, arriving in time for Christmas. Please be assured that all you have done and the amazing kindness shown by so many will make a huge difference to those who receive these lovely boxes. Thank you
