An open air meeting evening of song was held on Friday evening (30 June) between 7 and 8pm on Largs sea front, followed by a gospel meeting held in local halls kindly lent to us by Brisbane Evangelical Church. I think everyone agreed it was a great evening, made even better by the fact that the weather stayed dry for us! Here are some photos of the evening.
Today we had a dedication service in our Glasgow church followed by a lunch and family day. Baby Jacob Joseph Blair was very happy as he was dedicated in front of the whole church this morning, brought by his mum Laura, Dad Craig and Uncle Paul along with big sister Lily. After the service and lunch there were games for the kids in the park followed by a children's service at 2pm. A super day. See below for some photos of a very happy occasion.
Dedication of Jacob
It is with sadness that we heard this week of a passing of a dear friend Carol Ann Weisanen who was known to many in our Struthers group of Churches. Carol was born and brought up in Scotland then moved to the United States. She ministered there for many years in California along with her husband Don. Carol loved life, she loved the poor and needy, the fragile, she loved the unlovely and for all those things (and more) so was deeply loved in return. Our loss is Heaven's gain and we can only imagine her rejoicing at seeing her Saviour face to face. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Don and family.
