THIS MONTH’S EVENTS

22 September. 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.

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)

NEXT QUARTER’S EVENTS

6 October. Business meeting
As mentioned in our last church board meeting, there is a need for a Business meeting to discuss several things for a better management and serving of the church. Please let us know in advance your ideas, questions or challenges, so that the church board members and departamental leaders, along with the pastor will be better equipped to answer or suggest.

6 October. Church elections.
The same business meeting will be useful also for our church elections processs, that will start on the same day. A full article with resources has been posted here, please check: http://dublinwestsda.ie/2018/09/10/elections-in-the-church/

31 October. “Caring not Scaring”
We intend to have a social evening for kids, at the church, as a healthy alternative for the Halloween night. All those who want to be involved as helpers (staff) and those who will bring kids will contat Alyn, Melissa. We will soon come with more details.

10 November. Harvest Day
Another opportunity to praise the Lord for His blessings will be on th second Sabbath of November, when we will organize the Harvest Day in the church.
