Additional Announcements

If a member of your family is admitted to hospital or you are planning to go into hospital please inform Rev Boyd or Carolyn Patterson. The Hospital notification system is not working efficiently and often no news of an admission reaches the church.  It would also be very helpful if you could notify us on discharge from hospital.

Would the PW Ladies please leave your Missionary Boxes in the box left in the vestibule before 10th December or give it to Jean McNeilly,  Thank You.

Weekly Catechism – The Heidelberg Catechism

Q18 But who now is that mediator, who is at the same time true God and a true, sinless man?
Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is freely given unto us for complete redemption and righteousness.

Q19 From where do you know this?
From the holy gospel: which God Himself first revealed in Paradise; afterwards proclaimed by the holy patriarchs and prophets, and foreshadowed by the sacrifices and other ceremonies of the law; and finally fulfilled by His well-beloved Son.
