Welcome from Rev Stella and all at Skene Parish Church
On Tuesday 12th May the Church of Scotland launched a new recruitment campaign aimed at encouraging young people to consider parish ministry. It is part of a Decade of Ministry. And Skene features in the video! A big thank you must go to the folks at Pitcairn Lodge for their help in the filming and to the elders who came along for the service. Please take time to watch the video and pass it on. We want to get it out to as many people as possible. As you do, pray that this would encourage everyone who sees it to discern God's calling in their own lives. It gives a great insight into parish ministry and is a wonderful reminder of the privilege it is to serve God in our community. For more details check out http://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/.
Jesus told his disciples to wait for a gift from God before going out and being his witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the end of the earth. This gift is the Holy Spirit. Over recent weeks we have been exploring what this gift means for us in our lives and in the life of our church. One of the songs we have learned is Holy Spirit, Living Breath of God.
Response to Nepal Earthquake. As a church we are supporting ShelterBox with the help of Rotary. We have sponsored a box (£590) and we will be collecting monies in at our June Communion services. If you would like to give before then, pop your money in an envelope marked ShelterBox or Nepal. For more info on the charity, check out their website http://www.shelterbox.org/
