His mother said to him, ‘My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me.’ (Genesis 27:12, NIV)
As we continue our look at the life of Jacob, and his flawed faith, we start to see how much of mess Jacob and his family are. This is an account full of deception and self-centeredness. Even Rebekah’s offer to take a curse on behalf of her son is flawed. How can God’s plans possibly come to fruition, given how they behave?
You would be very welcome to join us at 10:30am in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we continue to look at Jacob’s life.
You would also be welcome at our 4pm service in St Thomas, Northaw, this afternoon, as we continue to look at the big picture of the Bible together.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
If you encounter problems with viewing the service via Facebook (or YouTube) please follow the link for YouTube (or Facebook) instead.
Our children’s church meets this Sunday morning in the Undercroft (underneath the main building). Children are welcome from 10:20, and will join us in the main part of the building at the end of the service.
St Andrew’s Day
On Wednesday 30th November, at 5.00pm, there will be a service to mark St Andrew’s day. This will be followed by a fish and chip supper. Please sign up using the list at the back of St Andrew’s, or see Doreen.
Our 4pm service is this Sunday afternoon in St Thomas. It’s a less formal service, with a more contemporary feel — something slightly different to that which we normally do. This will be an experiment, running for 8 Sunday afternoons starting in October. For this first try, we’ll be looking at the whole story of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. There will also be cake!
I’d love for you to join us for these afternoon services. It would be really great to have as many as possible exploring the storyline of the Bible together. If you felt able to serve some refreshments after the service, that would be really helpful.
If you have any questions, or might be willing to help, please be in touch with me (07446 516945 / 01707 699030, firstname.lastname@example.org).
