INFO/ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

1. ELECTIONS IN THE CHURCH

Today we will have the second reading of the report of Nominating Committee and the vote. 

2. PRAYER MEETINGS

A small group has been formed of Dublin West members – a study and prayer group, meeting on Friday nights. (There is another group, made by Moldavians and the meetings are every Tuesday, in different houses – Romanian language – in Blanchardstown area.)

The invitation then is extended to any member for these groups – depending on language used. For Friday night meetings it is all English language. The book which is studied and discussed is “If my people pray”, by Randy Maxwell.

The meetings are from 7 to 8pm, at sister Jacinta’s house at 7 Sheepmoor View, Clonsilla, Dublin 15.

3. HOPE IN THE DARKNESS 

A short report of our donations on Harvest Day is posted on this website, under the title “Greetings from Gadara”. (It has almost 1000 views!) If anyone wants to volunteer still, donations are welcome: food (even hot food), sleeping bags and winter clothes, money. Talk to the pastor as he is in contact with them.

4. PREACHING SCHEDULE

Do you know who preaches on 23rd of December? Or when is pastor Llew and his cancer survivor wife coming to Dublin West? Or maybe when do we meet the TED Health director? Please check preaching plan for our church, the full calendar for Q1/2018 is available on the Schedule tab in the menu above.

5. STEPS TO CHRIST

For all those commited to read/listen the book “Steps to Christ”, one chapter per week, here is the material in text and audio format, along with study materials for Steps to Christ – Chapter 11. One very interesting quote about a… step to Christ:

“To pray in the name of Jesus is something more than a mere mention of that name at the beginning and the ending of a prayer. It is to pray in the mind and spirit of Jesus, while we believe His promises, rely upon His grace, and work His works.“

Share with others as all have to come closer and take the steps to Christ!

6. THURSDAYS PASTORAL VISITS

Your pastor is available for visits! (just in case you’ve wondered)

Every Thursday (morning, daytime, evening) is set aside for pastoral visits. So, if you need a visit (or want to visit the pastor at home), please talk to him. Contact: pastor Christian Salcianu, 085 223 4482; christian@adventist.ie.

“My prayer is not for them [the disciples] alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.” (Jesus Christ in John 17:20-21)
