News from Jacob

Jacob has produced a leaflet about his plans for next year - he’ll be returning to YWAM in the UK in January. We’ll be hearing more from him during the service on 29th Nov, but in the meantime, pick up a leaflet from the back of church and read more.

Christmas is Coming!

Leaflets are now available at the back of church, with details of our Christmas services. Take as many as you want to invite friends, family, colleagues, anyone on your frontline. Click here for more info.

Help Needed

Leaflets

Can you give an hour to help deliver leaflets to the homes around the church building on Thurs 26th Nov, 2pm?  Please let Heather know if you can help.

Decorations

Can you help decorate the building for Christmas on Sat 28th Nov from 9am? The more people we have, the quicker it’s done!

Christmas Food Parcels

As well as our usual Lord’s Larder food parcels, we want to bless more people with a gift of Christmas treats. You can help in two ways:

  1. Do you know someone who would appreciate receiving a parcel? Give their name (in confidence) to Latanya or Margaret.

  2. Can you donate some Christmas treats?  Put them in the baskets at the back of church.

Explore Together

You can continue to explore the passages and themes of our 1st November service on our Explore Together web pages: eldadchurch.org.gg/explore

Frontline Selfies

To help us to pray for one another, we’d love to display a picture of you on your frontline. That could be at work; with your family, neighbour or friend; at the gym or a club/group you are part of. Send your photo to heather@eldadchurch.org.gg and we’ll print them off and put them on the prayer board at the back of church.

Important Info

We have been reminded this week of the importance of adhering to basic good practises to keep us all safe, this includes at church:

Hand hygiene - there is sanitiser available at the entrance

Coughs and colds - please don’t come to meetings if you are unwell, join in online instead

Personal space - respect that some people don’t want hugs or handshakes

Keeping in touch - do we have your contact details? We send out important updates by email, WhatsApp and Facebook. Use the Welcome sheet to give us or update your details. 

Inspiring our Youth

Can you teach, encourage and inspire our 10-16 year olds? We are looking for a new team of people to work with the young people on a Sunday morning. Speak to Michelle for more information. (All those working with children and young people are required to have a DBS check and work within our Safeguarding Policy and Code of Conduct)

Lord’s Larder - can you help?

Our Lord’s Larder is a small food bank that we use to support people in the church, or known to us, who need it. Donations of non-perishable items can be left in the baskets under the table at the back of the church. There are some small cards with suggested items on for you to keep in your wallet.  If you, or anyone you know are in need of a food parcel you can speak to Margaret Le Page or Lynne Kellett-Smith in confidence.

Prayer

If you would like prayer for anything, contact us on prayer@eldadchurch.org.gg

Your Stories

We’d love to hear what God is doing in your life. Share your stories and experiences with us, so that we can all be encouraged and pray for you.

Focus verse 2020

Our verse for the year is Romans 12:9-10 "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves." There are handy verse cards to keep in your wallet, bag, Bible or stick on your fridge or mirror to help you remember. If you haven’t got one yet, there are plenty on the shelf at the back of church.
