Reading – Genesis 49. (ESV)  


1 Then Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall happen to you in days to come 2 “Assemble and listen, O sons of Jacob, listen to Israel your father. 3 “Reuben, you are my firstborn, my might, and the firstfruits of my strength, preeminent in dignity and preeminent in power.4Unstable as water, you shall not have pre-eminence, because you went up to your father's bed; then you defiled it he went up to my couch! 5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers; weapons of violence are their swords. 6 Let my soul come not into their council; O my glory, be not joined to their company. For in their anger they killed men, and in their willfulness they hamstrung oxen. 7 Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce, and their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob and scatter them in Israel. 8 “Judah, your brothers shall praise you; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons shall bow down before you. 9 Judah is a lion's cub; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He stooped down; he crouched as a lion and as a lioness; who dares rouse him? 10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. 11 Binding his foal to the vine and his donkey's colt to the choice vine, he has washed his garments in wine and his vesture in the blood of grapes 12 His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.13“Zebulun shall dwell at the shore of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his border shall be at Sidon.              14 “Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between the sheepfolds. 15 He saw that a resting place was good, and that the land was pleasant, so he bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant at forced labor. 16 “Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent in the way, a viper by the path that bites the horse's heels so that his rider falls backward.18 I wait for your salvation, O Lord. 19 “Raiders shall raid Gad, but he shall raid at their heels. 20 “Asher's food shall be rich, and he shall yield royal delicacies. 21 “Naphtali is a doe let loose that bears beautiful fawns. 22 “Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring; his branches run over the wall. 23 The archers bitterly attacked him, shot at him, and harassed him severely, 24 yet his bow remained unmoved; his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel),25 by the God of your father who will help you, by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that crouches beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. 26 The blessings of your father are mighty beyond the blessings of my parents, up to the bounties of the everlasting hills. May they be on the head of Joseph, and on the brow of him who was set apart from his brothers. 27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf, in the morning devouring the prey and at evening dividing the spoil.” 28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel. This is what their father said to them as he blessed them, blessing each with the blessing suitable to him. 29 Then he commanded them and said to them, “I am to be gathered to my people; bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, 30 in the cave that is in the field at Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to possess as a burying place. 31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife. There they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife, and there   I buried Leah 32 the field and the cave that is in it were bought from the Hittites.” 33 When Jacob finished commanding his sons, he drew up his feet into the bed and breathed his last and was gathered to his people.

11am & 6pm Service – taken by our Minister.


Praise

 

Psalm – 63:1-8.  Lord Thee my God.

Praise – O Praise the Name.                                                 

Hymn – 166.  O for a thousand tongues to sing.            

Praise - Jesus, all for Jesus.


Reading – 1 John 1:1-10. (ESV)  


1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life 2 The life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us.  3 That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.  5 This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

AGM Monday 10th May

Dear Church Family and Friends.


I hope that this short letter finds you well and in good heart. I am reminded of a question that the Apostle Paul wrote to the Romans: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” His answer was: “That neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This last year we have been separated from our families, children, grandchildren, separated from meeting together. It has been a tough year for us.  But we have never been separated from God and His love for us. In an ever-changing world, changing restrictions, we have one constant: God’s love for us. What a blessing it is, to know that in our soul, how He has kept us, loved us, cared for us, spoken to us, and met with us along our pathway in life. 


We are thankful to have the church open again, to meet in fellowship, to be able to see each other face to face, albeit behind a mask. I remember the first Sunday back in church, it was so good to see people again. For those who are still not attending, I would encourage you to come back, your church family miss you. We find strength and encouragement when we are together. 


This last year, we could not hold our AGM, because of restrictions placed upon us, we could not even hand out copies of our Financial Statement. But we will be holding our AGM on the 10th May at 7:30pm on a Zoom meeting. If you wish to attend, please get in touch with Chris Barrowman, so that he can get your email address and send you the link to watch. Thank you for your continuing support and generosity to the work of The Lord here in Ness and in other parts of the world.


Yours in sincerely


John M Nicolson
