Sunday Service 2020-10-04

Welcome to our Online Sunday Service at Llanelwy Community Church. We welcome and thank Peter Cousins who planned the service and is our speaker this week.

Feel free to use this service whenever you want. However, the idea is that, if you can, to start at 10:30 on Sunday. Then, at 11:45 on Sunday, we’ll have a zoom meeting at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87287366294. If you click on this link now, you can download the zoom client (which is free) so you are ready to go, or just use the webpage to join. Or you can dial in using the numbers below. If none of that works for you, please simply ring other people in the congregation or do a messenger-group-chats together (or however you do online chats!) encourage one-another and generally catch up with one another.

Please click on each item and read, or listen to the item, then when you are finished, come back to this page and click on the next item.

You should be able to click on the minimised embedded picture (which avoids adverts) and you can then maximise this to fill the screen.  Other links (the green buttons) are also included in case of issues.

Sunday Service 4th October 2020

Watch and join in the liturgy by saying this prayer altogether:

O God, you summon the day to dawn,
You teach the morning to waken the earth,
Great is your name, Great is your love.

For you the valleys shall sing for joy,
The trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Great is your name, Great is your love.

For you the leaders and tyrants of the earth shall bow,
The poor and persecuted shall shout for joy,
Great is your name, Great is your love.

Your love and mercy shall last for ever,
Fresh as the morning, sure as the sunrise.
Great is your name, Great is your love.

Amen.

For an excellent introduction to the Book of Daniel, take nine minutes to watch this first class Bible Project explanatory trip through the book (if you want to leave this to later, that’s fine, but it’s worth exploring):

(all the music videos today have the words on the screen, so please join in at home if you wish)

Section for the Children:

Daniel and his three friends had been captured in Jerusalem and taken to the great city of Babylon where they were to be trained as civil servants in the government of a brutal dictator. They were given new names and were expected to obey the rules. A crisis came when they were served disgusting food.

After a couple of weeks the King’s steward came back to discover that Daniel and his three friends were healthier and better looking than all the other young men in training, so he allowed them to choose their own food from then on. By the way, Daniel was so blessed by God that he went on some years later to have a vision of Jesus. He really did turn his eyes upon Jesus!

If you want to, you can ask your parent to give you extra vegetables to eat this week like Daniel and his friends. Personally I think raw carrots are the most yummy!
