We learn together (3:00 – 4:00 pm)
Our afternoon program is dedicated to a study continuing the Sabbath School lesson. Have you noticed the passage and question that start the Friday section?
“Did the mind of Agrippa at the words of Paul revert to the past history of his family, and their fruitless efforts against Him whom Paul was preaching?"
We will check the history and see the four kings, all 4 Herods, that were being used by Satan to fight against the one King Jesus.
THIS MONTH'S EVENTS
22 September. Hope in the Darkness
As usual for a number of times now, when we are coming for what the Lord has provided for us, we are invited also to bring something for others. Accordingly, once a quarter, please come with all things necessary for those in need (Matthew 25:31-46) – food, clothes, hygiene products, money, which we will donate to Hope in the Darkness (see Greetings from Gadara)
29 September. Power of 39,000
Day of free literature distribution – On Sabbath 29th September 2018 we are anticipating that all our members, friends, Sabbath School members and visitors will join hearts and hands to distribute over three hundred thousand (300,000.00) pieces of literature throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. The FREE resources we are supplying this year are “The Power of Hope (Overcoming depression, anxiety, guilt and stress)" and “Health & Wellness".
For Dublin West we have 100-120 pieces of each title available this Sabbath.
NEXT QUARTER'S EVENTS
