Fearn Communion:  We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper towards the end of the morning service today.    The bread and wine will be served to those sitting at the seats marked by a white cloth.   If you are not sitting in that area and intend to take communion, there will be a point during the service when we sing Psalm 118 and the minister will invite you to make your way to that area.    If you are sitting in that area and do not intend to take communion, simply pass the bread and wine to the person next to you.

Our guest preacher over this weekend is Rev. Murdo Campbell of Barvas Free Church.   Murdo will lead both services today and will share some of his life story at the fellowship in the hall following the evening service.

New Members:  Two new members have been added to the communion roll of the congregation at the Fearn Communion.   Mr Hugh MacDonald by profession of faith and Mrs Betty Lochhead by certificate from another congregation. 

Property Upkeep Fund:  There is a collection at the close of both services next Sunday for the property upkeep fund.
