REDLANDS Service of Dedication

Devoted

This Sunday we gather as Harbour Churches for a Service of Dedication for this summers REDLANDS Youth Camps.

This will be an occasion of great joy after all the restrictions of Covid preventing us from running the camps for two years.

The dictionary gives a long list of all those qualities that characterise dedication:

commitment, wholeheartedness, single-mindedness, enthusiasm, zeal, application, diligence, industry, assiduity, resolve, resoluteness, purposefulness, conscientiousness, perseverance, persistence, tenacity, doggedness, drive, staying power, backbone, sedulousness, hard work, effort, labour, striving, devoted, devotion, loyalty, faithfulness, adherence, allegiance, constancy, staunchness

The Latin root of the word ‘dedication’ is dedicatiodevoted.

So, our service of dedication will be a Service of Devotion.  Devotion is how we express our love for the God of Life we know, love and follow in the person of Christ. That ‘how’ will be in the many, many ways those who attend – and those who help out – will experience something of that ‘good news’ we now claim as the mission of our churches as we build God’s Kingdom.

Let’s devote ourselves to being good news, as we join together in prayer and praise to dedicate the amazing work we are doing with children and young people in our communities….

THIS SUNDAY 26 JUNE 3-4pm @
REDLANDS BARN, REDLANDS LANE, PO20 8QE
Ample parking is available – but do try to share transport.
Delicious refreshments will be served after the service.
All our welcome.

Assuring you all of my prayers and trusting in yours
