American visitors

We recently had the opportunity to hear about the work of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. Jason and Michelle, who were over visiting from Indianapolis with their two children, gave us a bit of a flavour of church life Stateside at our Wednesday morning Bible study.


Stephen and Jason had previously met on a mission team in Newry, and Carla and Michelle had previously met on a mission team in Airdrie. Because of their vision for the Global RP Church, they said that they had decided to spend their European holiday in Airdrie and Stranraer rather than Barcelona and London.


After sharing some traditional Scottish food, Stephen and Carla took them to Wigtown to show them some Covenanter sites.  We are grateful for another opportunity to spend time with brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world!


Reading Lamentations

Lamentations is probably one of the least-known books of the Bible - but we're hoping to become more familiar with it over the next 4 weeks as we read it together using the notes from Let's Worship God, and then get together on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm to discuss it.


The notes were written by Kyle Borg, minister of Winchester RP Church in Kansas. He's pictured above with Stephen at the RP International Conference in the summer. To read more of Kyle's writing, check out his contributions to the Gentle Reformation blog. His sermons are available to listen to on Reformed Voice, along with a helpful seminar he gave at the Conference on rural and small town ministry:
