Good morning, and welcome to our praise service. A warm welcome to all visitors. We hope you enjoy your time with us, and please take our good wishes back to your own congregation on your return home. May each one of us know God’s blessing as we worship together. We are very pleased to welcome Mrs Sharon MacLeod to lead our worship today.
Lily is waiting for physiotherapist to start and hopes to see good progress in mobility once that is underway.
Next week is Holy Week, and Sunday is Palm Sunday, when we will distribute Palm Crosses during the service as a reminder of the occasion. There will also be a retiring collection today for African Palms, who work in villages in Tanzania
You may be aware that Robert Marr ‘signed up’ as Treasurer for three years, and his time is up! and we are very grateful for the hard work he has done, along with Lindsey. Added to that is the fact that they intend to leave Arran for pastures new. The bottom line is that we are looking for a new Treasurer. Any one who has any suitable/interested contacts is asked to speak to Ian Watt.
The SU Holiday Club has run very successfully last week with about 14 children each day. Our thanks go to all those who gave up time and talents to help out during the week and and especially to Owain Evans, the SU co-ordinator for Dumfries and Galloway, who worked so well with the children getting the message across each day in imaginative and interesting ways. This proved to be a very successful first venture for our church.
