ST ERTH METHODISTS:
Last Sunday’s service was led by Pastor Kenny Bassett with Mrs Pamela Williams the organist. Kenny read from Jeremiah ch.23 v 1-8. He then spoke of how Jeremiah was persecuted, put in prison, beaten up because he spoke the truth of what God had revealed to him. In spite of everything he trusted God and stood firm and what he prophesied eventually happened. He also prophesied about the return of the Lord which is still to come and until then we must trust in God and obey His word and stand firm even though it may go against current trends.
This Sunday’s worship with Lasers for young people will be led, God willing, by Mrs V Stevens. Everyone most welcome at 11am.
