Methodist news - Sunday morning service was led by the Worship Team and was a special service for Father’s Day. We explored, ‘the love of our Father God’ from a talk given by Jonathan Osteen and our hymns also reflected this theme. When the disciples asked Jesus how they should pray the very first words he used were, ‘our father in heaven.’ Of all the ways he could have told us how to relate to God, Jesus says God is our father.
Jesus was reminding us of the way God feels about us. That he is not just the creator of the universe. He is our heavenly Father. He wants to spend time with us. He always has our best interests at heart. Our father is a constant source of strength and protection. He is there to encourage us when we are down, and push us forward when we feel like giving up. If he cares for the birds in the air, how much more must He care for us? After worship we enjoyed coffee in the Hall. Next Sunday at 10.30am the Worship Team will be leading our service again and we invite you to come along and join us, all are welcome.
Christmas shoeboxes - Yes Christmas, you did read that correctly, the shoebox collecting for needy children never stops. Our knitters are very busy but we are nearly out of wool. Can you help? Maybe you have some leftover wool in a cupboard you would let us have. Or maybe you’d like to knit something yourself, we have patterns for hats and mittens and glove puppets and would gladly send you a copy. We don’t knit soft toys as they have to have the safety mark. An appeal to tennis clubs – we like to include a tennis ball in each box, would you be prepared to help us with this. Also we need flannels, soap, and sponge bags to put them in. Have you still got any old video cases, they make super pencil cases and of course we need pencils, ordinary and colouring, biros, rubbers, small notepads. We make up colouring books and note books but of course that uses a lot of paper. Local businesses are kind to us but we could still do with more paper to print them. Any small new condition toys would be most welcome especially cars and things suitable for the older children. If you can help in any way we would really appreciate it, just ring Christine on 01944 711294. Any gifts can be left at the Tuesday Coffee Morning at the Methodist Church.
Village hall coffee morning - The two Sues look forward to welcoming you on Thursday mornings from 9am – 11.30am. You can enjoy tea or coffee with a toasted teacake for £1.50. All proceeds are for the Sherburn Village Hall.
