Stokesley Bear: May 2018
Stokesley's Easter Offering Service took place on Sunday 6 May at 3pm in Stokesley Methodist Church. Representatives from the churches came to take part in leading the service. Each church had a part to play from leading prayers to working the projector!
The theme of the service was 'Seek peace and pursue it' and was prepared by Methodist Women in Britain as a way of churches coming together to share stories of God's mission.
Within the service, there was also a chance for churches to give the money they have collected for the World Mission Fund. This collection is known as the Easter Offering Service and supports 65 partner churches world-wide.
During the service we were encouraged to love our enemies and pray for people who persecute us. We heard of hope filled examples of people around the world who are putting those words into actions.
The service gave me a lot of food for thought. There was also a delicious range of cakes after the service so we could continue sharing and encouraging each other. Thank you to everyone who helped make this service possible!
