Count Everyone In

We’d love you to join us for these short daily online sessions of Bible teaching, worship, signing and prayer with Count Everyone In. The series runs Monday to Friday and is especially intended for adults with learning disabilities to encounter God for the first time or to grow in their faith and understanding. We shall explore the exciting Book of Ruth with the help of Janneke Klos, Pete and Christine Winmill, who each take the role of one of the main characters. We shall find out how God is faithful even in difficult times. Each session will be streamed on YouTube.

Today it’s time to meet Boaz and hear the story from his point of view. Join us at 10:45am on YouTube to continue thinking about God’s faithfulness and also some ways in which we can be kind to other people.

This week’s sessions are a repeat of those premiered during Week One.

Morning Bible Reading: Exodus: A Portrait of God’s Faithfulness in Five Meals

We’re going to look at five meals in the book of Exodus that together tell not simply the story of God’s liberation of the Israelites from slavery, but our story, our liberation and our future.

A Faithful Mediator (Exodus 19 and 24): What’s the ultimate end point of God’s purposes for us? We might find some surprising answers at Mount Sinai.

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.

Evening Celebration: Celebrating the merciful promise-keeping God (Mission Night)

The opening two chapters of Luke’s gospel highlight the faithfulness of God as the Old Testament story – a story awaiting a conclusion for a people awaiting consolation – comes to its climax in Jesus. Jesus is revealed as the fulfilment of Jewish hopes for salvation, an expression of God’s mercy and faithfulness to his promises.

In Luke 1:57-80, the mercy of God shines brightly in the ‘horn of salvation’ for whom Zechariah’s child will prepare the way. And this salvation means fulfilment of the Abrahamic promise, ultimately that all nations of the world will find blessing.

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.
