Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.
Here at Langstaff we love to celebrate the Lord's goodness and blessing, and this past week we were able to do just that! Tim Berry gave ministry this past Lord's Day on God's promise that stands and His anchor that holds. We have come into an amazing inheritance, not by our own merits, and it was challenging to be graciously reminded of the responsibilities that come with being heirs of Christ. The youth got together to study the first chapter of Philippians 1, the Kid's Club had 15 children, who are not from Langstaff attend, and we all met on Wednesday to discuss more practical matters of the running of the assembly. This week is another chance to glorify our King, so may we cling to His cross and stand stedfast on His eternal promises.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
- Wednesday night is back to our usual Bible study and prayer meeting. We are back in 2 Tim 3, the end of the chapter. 7.15pm is a fantastic time to be able to bring your children or have a bite after work, so we'd love to see as many attend as are able! Outlines are at the back of the hall.
- Thursday evening at 6pm the ladies will meet at the Hall to bake cookies and cheesecakes for the upcoming Easter conference. If you are able to attend and help out in this practical way, they would love to see you there.
- The Cambridge bible study conference will be this coming weekend. Please find the schedule attached here. This is their first annual conference, and we are sure they would love to see numerous faces there as encouragement. The passage will be 1 Thessalonians led by brethren Frank Sona and Bryan Crawford.
- The youth ministry meeting is this Lord's Day with Stephen Vance speaking. If you feel like helping out with the feast of a snack, the sign up sheet is at the back. The ministry starts at 8pm after the gospel meeting.
- Kids Club is Tuesday night, please encourage any children you know to attend.
This past Lord's Day we sang a hymn written by the young girls/ladies of Langstaff. We seem to have quite the talent pool here in Richmond Hill! Keep the hymns rolling along, it is a fantastic way to meditate on Christ and maintain a functioning right side of the brain! You can submit an original hymn with new music / lyrics or use one of the many tunes we know to put your text to. You can submit these on the members website or to Andrew Ussher. If you don't feel you're the next William Shakespeare but would like to give it a go, feel free to write it anonymously.
