Sermon Video: Profile of a Follower

Screenshot 2016-06-12 15.00.03In this week’s sermon, our beloved Minister Bob talks about the attributes we should all possess as followers of Jesus.  This will be the last in the series that has explored all aspects of church leadership from scripture and how it affects us in the contemporary world.  Bob suggests five things that we should do every day to make ourselves more like our lord Jesus; and thus better followers.  And as always, Bob’s message is God breathed in scripture and passed on to us through him.

So if you missed the sermon this week, then watch the video now to find out what those five things are.  If you were there and can’t remember all five, then watch again.  Or if none of the above apply to you, watch it again anyway – there’s always so much more to be learned when you watch Bob’s messages more than just once.

VBS Rocks

WeWCOC 2016 011 (1)ll VBS certainly does rock, but what you’re seeing here is rocks of a different kind.  You may have heard that this year’s theme for Vacation Bible School is ‘David, a man after God’s own heart’.  And when we think of David, it’s hard not to think of Goliath and his fall at the hands of this remarkable young man.

This week the Ladies Ministry got together and made very creative use of some leftover paint and paper bags in order to create some rather excellent looking rocks.  It’s all part of the VBS preparations and as you can see, fun is already being had by everyone; and VBS is still over a month away.  This is just one of many things the ladies are doing to make this years VBS a resounding success.  Contact Carolyn Martin to find our how you can help; and of course don’t forget; you can click on the VBS banner on this web site’s home page to sign up for this years VBS.  We’ll see you there.
