As the church year starts (see 2018 in review here), all the church board members are invited to a meeting in the Upper Room.

THIS MONTH’S EVENTS

The Reformation and the Remnant
Dr. Nicholas Miller from Andrews University will visit Irish Mission next Sabbath. Guest speaker for Northern Ireland Day of Fellowship, he will preach in Dublin on Friday night (14 September at 8pm). An open invitation for all to the Romanian SDA Church in Jobstown (www.bisericaadventista.ro/contact). The presentation will be based on Dr. Miller’s latest book “The Reformation and the Remnant” (see a book review here) and will be focused on the theme of The Great Controversy.

Pastor Greg preaching in Dublin West
For more than a year now we have been blessed by Pastor Greg Davis with his presence, sermons and presentations. Next Sabbath is a new opportunity to be led in study and worship by Pastor Greg.

Lord’s Supper
Add to your calendar 22 September, as the date for our Communion service or Lord’s Supper. It is a good time to get together, ask for forgiveness, turn a new page and learn from our Lord.

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)
