Two things can be said with a degree of certainty about this week’s Thought for the Day at Koffee Time: it will lack the sparkling wit that George Mitchell brought last week and it will not be as lengthy. That said, the group were pleased to have news of the orphanages George has an interest in in Kenya. One thing remains the same – Koffee Time is from 10 a.m.-noon today (Thursday). The meetings on Sunday follow the established pattern - Breaking of Bread 10.30 a.m., refreshments 11.30 a.m. and the Bible Teaching and Sunday Club at 11.50 a.m. The expected speaker to the adults is Paul Ford. On Sunday afternoon we visit Glenfuir Court for a short service at 3 p.m. On Monday Koffee Time Extra meets from 2-3.30 pm. All welcome to join for a cuppa on the third Monday afternoon each month. Tuesday brings the Carmuirs Primary After School Bible Club at close of school and in the evening study on the Life of Moses continues at 7.30 p.m. This week we reach study number nine, Roy Gray leads the study this week.
