September 12th. 2008 Church Weekend Away

Friday September 12th – 14th saw Hetton IM church once again at Abbot Hall Grange-over-Sands. 40 men, women and young people travelled to share fellowship and to hear what God had to say to us.

Our speaker this year was Andrew Faulkner who spoke on the book of Jonah. We were all challenged by the message about our attitude to God’s plans and the people who He wants to reach. Andrew is a gifted speaker and we thank the Lord for the word He brought to us.

We were also thrilled on the Saturday to see Jill, Glen and Daniel go through the waters of baptism.

We thank everyone who worked hard behind the scenes to see that everything went well and as a church we appreciate all they have done.

Our last meeting together was for the breaking of bread on Sunday morning and we were thrilled to have Adam join us for the first time as he put his trust in the Lord.

The elders and the deacons worked hard to make the weekend a success and I am sure everyone would agree it was.
