THIS MONTH’S EVENTS

22 September. Hope in the Darkness

Thank you for your invaluable help toward the needs of homeless or poor people in Dublin. Your gifts and money have been delivered to them this last Thursday (for more info about our efforts, please see Greetings from Gadara)

Food, clothes, products and money (150 euro) were donated this time to Hope in the Darkness.

All things were loaded on Thursday morning and delivered the same night at 8pm at GPO.

One man, probably homeless (as you can see the sleeping bags), eating right on the street.

In the green van, all the clothing is separated and then donated according to the needs.

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

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.

A second session will be in the afternoon, when Pastor Dan Serb will come to inform and discuss about some changes and new projects for the churches in Dublin area.

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/

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.
