Continuing the theme of ‘Women in the Gospels’, which we began during Advent, with Elizabeth and then Mary, our themes for February at the 10.45am service are as follows:
Sunday 2nd February: Mary of Bethany
Sunday 9th February: The Woman at Nain
Sunday 23rd February: Women Disciples of Jesus
Andrew, Naomi and Pippa will be leading a Taizé style worship at the evening worship at 6:00pm. If you would like to help lead the singing for this we would love to hear from you. A rehearsal to learn songs and parts will take place in the church on Wednesday 27th November at 7:30pm.
And of course everyone is welcome to join us for this meditative style of worship.
This annual service will take place on Saturday 30th November at 3.00pm, followed by tea/coffee in the Hall. This is a popular and moving service which enables us to stop in the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations, and remember those near and dear to us who have died, recently or in the past, and whose loss is especially felt at this time of year. There will be an opportunity, as usual, to light a candle in their memory, and to write their names on a heart and hang it on our Christmas tree, where it will remain throughout the season.
During the month of August, as usual there will be combined evening services at various churches in the Circuit. If you wish to attend one of these services, please contact the duty steward for the relevant week so that lifts can be organised.
For the last three years the Methodist Church has encouraged members to observe ‘Bible Month’, in which preaching and study groups focus on a particular book of the Bible. This year an increasing number of churches across our Circuit have decided to participate. At FMC we have chosen to do this at the 10.45am service during July.
The chosen book for this year is Paul’s letter to Colossians. Paul wrote this letter to the church at Colosse (near Ephesus in modern-day Turkey) whilst he was imprisoned in Rome. He had heard that the new church was being undermined by some heretical philosophy, and he writes to confirm the supremacy of Jesus Christ as the cornerstone of Christian belief. You may like to read the letter in advance of the services each week. The programme is as follows:
July 7th: Colossians 1: 1-23
July 14th: Colossians 1: 24 – 2: 15
July 21st: Colossians 2: 16 – 3: 17
July 28th: Colossians 3: 18 – 4: 18
The Women’s World Day of Prayer Service will be held at St Laurence Parish Church, Frodsham, on Friday 1st March at 1.30pm. All are most welcome.
