OPEN DISCUSSION (3:00 – 4:30 pm)

An open discussion on the topic of… celebrating Christmas or not. The request was raised and we want to answer the following three questions:

What is the official position the Seventh-day Adventist Church has about Christmas?

What is our position in Dublin West SDA Church?

What can we do better?

We are inviting all to participate, as we will have a short introduction by the pastor on the church resources available, a selection of panelists representatives of different perspective, group discussion, observers.

INFO/ANNOUNCEMENTS

1. PRAYER MEETING 

Every Friday night, at 7pm, you are welcome to join our prayer group in Blanchardstown (at sister Jacinta’s house). For one hour or so you carry along with other brothers and sisters the needs of our church, the needs of our loved ones or of the people around us so that God will make His will known and fulfilled. If you have a special need, let us know and we will pray for you. Text the message to 085 223 4482.


2. CELEBRATING DIVERSITY 

Every last Sabbath of the month our program will be a celebration of our diversity in Dublin West. The pastor will have a special sermon on this subject, while an ethnic group in our church will contribute to the divine service with their specific traditional features. In the afternoon of that last Sabbath of the month, the program will be an open discussion on subjects of interest for the church. The first two ones, for January and February are: a) Perspectives on Christmas Celebration and b) perspectives and understandings on the subject of Church’s divine service.
