Last Lord’s Day we welcomed Gracie to Scotland as she worshipped with us for the first time.
Over the past week she has been settling into life in Stranraer, taken part in our first ever ladies’ prayer time, helped run a Scripture Union group* in a local primary school, served as an extra pair of hands as we restarted our Toddlers group (in its new lunch time format!) and also helped out at Belvilla Youth, run by our friends at the Baptist Church.
She has also spent time in various homes, getting to know the congregation here and offering some practical help. We are glad to have her and are looking forward to the next 8 weeks!
*The lunch time Scripture Union group is being held in Rephad Primary, led by Amy, Stephen and Gracie. It was great to have around 40 children present.
Amy interviewed Stephen and Gracie about where they were from, and what it means to live as a Christian. She then introduced our theme for the next 6 weeks, ‘God’s rescue plan’, and spoke about the Bible as God’s letter addressed to the world. Please remember these outreach efforts in your prayers!
