Youth Week-end away

Hey Everyone!
 
Few weeks ago we had an opportunity to take 15 young people to a week-end away to Barcaple. The place where we stayed is a beautiful outdoor centre about two hours drive away from Glasgow. Every one of the young people loved it! It was a spiritual as well as physical boot camp for three days. Our theme for the whole week-end away was "Who is Holy Spirit"? We did lots of outdoor activities, hill hiking and canoeing as well as we spent time together as a youth group getting to know one another and more of God. We had an opportunity to pray with everyone to be filled with the Holy Spirit. And we had no phones...no internet...no social media...So proud of our young people connecting with one another and God without any distractions!
 
Here are few pictures from our hill hike in the beautiful Scottish scenery...

Common Wealth Games Glasgow 2014

Hey Everyone!

We had a really busy but wonderful summer! Glasgow was the host of the 2014 Common Wealth Games. ("like mini Olympics"). Athletes from all around the world came to Glasgow on 23rd July-3rd August. Our church was literally next door to the athletes village. There was a great buzz in the city and we did our best to be part of the games!

We hosted three different teams while the games were on. YWAM team from Brisbaine Australia were with us for three weeks. We also hosted a YWAM breakers team from the Netherlands and FireStarters Youth team.

We decorated peoples houses, organized a week long games in the park for kids, another week of Summer Holiday Club for the kids and a Family BBQ for the whole community.

Outreaches were a great success and we saw many people receive Jesus in their hearts during the outreaches.

Here are few photos!

The Childrens Summer Programme was a great success! Over 100 children came along throughout the prorgramme!

Family Fun Day

Hey Everyone!
It has been over a month since we got back from America. We had a privilege to visit Texas and Connecticut in March and April!  It was wonderful to see so many friends and family as well as meet many new people and visit new churches! We were truly blessed!
 
These photos are from our Family Fun Day...
May 10th, 2014 from 2pm-4pm..
It rained until 1.50pm and started raining at 4pm...Isn't God good, just the two hours we needed was beautiful and the sun even came out! Two families came to church and they have all received Jesus as their Lord and Savior! Please keep praying for these new families that they would stay committed and allow God to work in their lives.

Water Baptism Sunday 23rd February 2014

Hey Everyone!

This past Sunday we had a great baptism service.
Since we don't have our own baptism tank, we joined Larbert Pentecostal Church for their evening service. Pastor Michael Rollo kindly allowed us to baptize our people during their service.
The house was full of people and the service was excellent!
A real Kingdom of God moment, Christians coming together from different churches, celebrating God and His goodness. We are truly blessed to share some of these photos with you!
13 new Christians got water baptized. Thank you for your continuous support to us!


  Paul is welcoming everyone and getting ready to baptize people!

Sophie got baptized. Her and her mum have been coming to church for the past few years and now Sophie was ready to make this commitment to Jesus!
 Matthew became a Christian few months ago and is now faithfully coming along to church on  Sundays and Wednesday night's to Open House.
Courtney is one of our amazing young people who has been coming to the church for the past six years. When she started she was only 10 years old. She is the only one in her family who comes to church. She started coming along to our Kids Hour on Tuesday nights and now is one of our leaders in the children's programme! Please be praying for Courtney and her family!


       It was an honor to baptize David who has been coming to the church since the summer.
 Another praise report, David G - we are so proud of this man pressing into God and changing a life style from drug addiction to glorifying God! God has set him free, please be praying for David for God to give him wisdom and keep him connected with right people, and growing in God!
