During this weekend, we share in the Bread and Wine of the Lord's Supper, and in fellowship together as the Body of Christ.
The plans for the weekend are:
- Session 1 - Friday 5th May at 8.00pm in the meetinghouse
'Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat the bread and drink the cup' (1 Cor 11:28, NIVUK). But what does it mean to recognise the body of the Lord?
Philippians 1:27-2:4 call believers to remember that they are one body.
- Session 2 - Sunday 7th May at 11.30am in the meetinghouse
'Whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes' (1 Cor 11:26).
Philippians 2:1-11 lead us to reflect on the death of the Lord Jesus, and call us to have His mind in us.
- Session 3 - Sunday 7th May at 6.30pm in the meetinghouse
'The Lord Jesus ... said,"Do this in remembrance of Me"' (1 Cor 11:23-24). The Communion of the Lord's Supper reminds us that the Lord died for us so that we may live, trusting in what HE has done.
Philippians 2:5-18 show us how.
HOLY WEEK EVENTS 10TH - 14TH APRIL 2017
What is it about the death of one man that has changed history and made billions of people follow him?
The gospel message of Jesus Christ is something all Christians cling to and the entire world should hear.
Once again Donaghcloney and Waringstown churches are working with one another to bring the message of Easter to our community.
Our fellowship with the Lord and with one another is shown in the communion of the Lord's Supper, and we prepare for this, and give thanks over the course of the weekend.
Over the weekend we will be looking at Matthew 6:19-7:11.
The programme for the weekend is:
- Pre-communion service
- Friday 4th November at 8.00pm
- Communion service
- Sunday 6th November at 11.30am
- Celebration service
- Sunday 6th November at 6.30pm
Plan to come along and share in these times of fellowship around God's Word. Do note the times of prayer also!
As we look ahead to the autumn term restart of the different ministries associated with our congregation, we remember what the Bible says:
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain Psalm 127:1
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty Zechariah 4:6
apart from Me, you can do nothing John 15:5
We therefore need to pray for the Lord's help and blessing on all our work.
A special series of meetings for prayer is planned for Monday 29th August to Friday 2nd September. These meetings will be held in the Magill Room at 8.00pm each evening.
Each evening we shall be focusing on particular organisations or aspects of our church life.
Every evening we shall also be praying for our time of mission in October.
Also, please remember the times of prayer before our morning and evening services each Sunday. If you are able, come and join in the prayer meetings as we look to the Lord for His blessing.
