As another year draws to a close we have been reflecting in the planning meetings on where God has led us since September. Of course it has been great to have welcomed Andrew, Naomi, Matthew and Sophie to Frodsham Methodist Church, and to have the benefit of Andrew’s knowledge and enthusiasm both in the planning and delivery of 0930live!- as well as having the whole family participate in the services.
We have been guided to look at how God is in the ordinariness of our lives. For example, in our ‘messy’ family circumstances, and we looked at various Biblical families to see how God still worked through them despite some pretty desperate situations (think Joseph and his brothers…).
After Easter we considered how Jesus appeared in ’ordinary’ settings to normal people following his resurrection. Further evidence that God works through the ordinariness of life.
As we prepare to break for the holidays, we shall be asking God to go with us and to be with us, wherever we go and whatever we are doing this summer.
Jonny Ellams is going on a particularly exciting trip soon – to Haiti as part of the Methodist Church OneEncounter programme, and we shall be able to pray for him at 0930live! before he goes.
Sadly we were not able to go on our annual away weekend this year, so instead we have planned a social afternoon, Saturday 22nd July. Around 40 people will be meeting at Church to walk through the woods to Foxhill Centre where we’ll have drink and cake. Then after a short service of thanks we’ll walk back to Church for a BBQ tea and team games. A good way to end a good year!
May God go with you and be with you this summer
The 0930live! Team
