Our young adults will soon be on camp!
It’s been a long time since they've had a camp dedicated to them. At the time of writing this blog, we have 39 registered and there are still a few more days to go before registrations close, (hint, hint if you were thinking of coming).
If you would like to sponsor someone or register for camp, you can do so here.
Registrations close on Sunday 21st Feb.
It is exciting to see how all our groups are taking shape. I love to see the Keenagers meet or go on their bus trips, I love to see the Men’s Shed working, I love to see Chatter Matters serving coffee, it’s great to know of the Aberfoyle Community Garden and the Craft Group. There is so much more going on at Seeds.
All of this points to a deeper principal; we are made to be connected. God has hard wired us to be in relationship with each other and relationship with him. This is a fundamental truth of our humanity.
So what does this mean? It means simply that we have to be connected to others. My friends there is plenty of room for you, so why not take up the opportunity.
This coming week we have another of our 'All In' services. It’s where we don't send the kids out to their age appropriate programs, but all of us worship together in the one place at the one time.
We are a unique church to have such a great representation of all ages. For me it's a great joy to look around and see the many and varied faces of those who make up Seeds Church.
I don’t know what it will be like to worship in heaven, but I’m pretty sure that it includes all those who love Jesus, young, old and in-between. Maybe then our 'All In' service is just a little foretaste of what heavens worship will be like.
This Sunday, I encourage you to bring everyone you can think of to worship, bring them and let all of us together worship our great King!
We will also be cooking some pancakes between both services so come early or stay later - no cost to you, they're free! If you are up early, why not come to the 9 am service to make more room for people at the 10.45.
I spoke last Sunday about the body, those who were there might remember the illustration I used…
The body metaphor refers to the church, in other words all the members of the church are part of the body. This is really exciting stuff! With Christ as the head we are all interconnected and have a particular part to play.
That means even me, even you. The outworking of this is significant. For when we are missing or inactive we all suffer. BUT when we are active and engaged, the results are amazing. Not just for us, but also for the wider community. Together we all make a difference, both good and bad.
This is of great encouragement to each of us. All of us are wanted, in fact all of us are needed! You have a significant part to play and a contribution to Jesus body that only you can do.
