This Sunday the 30th April, Derrylin Parish Church hosted the KEA Diocesan GFS Service. Almost 30 girls, their parents and leaders joined together for a wonderful service based on the story of baby Moses. The girls from the Derrylin GFS branch read a poem entitled; ‘Hush a Bye Baby in your Reed Boat’ by Bob Hartman and Sam Hargreaves. In his sermon based on Exodus chapter 1 and 2, Rev Alastair Donaldson spoke of how, during a time of great darkness, God was working out his plan to rescue his people through the lives of three women – using the faith of Moses’ mother Jochebad, the obedience of Moses’ sister, Miriam and the courageous love of a pagan princess. Rev. Alastair noted that God is always at work in His most perfect timing, and that, when the time had fully come, God sent his Son so that we might be redeemed and adopted as his own children (Galatians 4vs4).
Girls from every GFS branch took part in the service by reading a bible reading or prayer. After the service there was a cup of tea in the hall and a special time of hospitality and friendship. We pray for the girls in the GFS branches around the Diocese and beyond as they deepen their knowledge and strengthen their faith in Christ.
