Isaiah 9 v 2 (NIV)
Remember: As we start the beautiful season of Advent, remember that the greatest blessing to us is the coming of Jesus.
Challenge: Let’s be ready as we prepare to celebrate Christmas and as we anticipate His coming again!
The verse of the week is inspired by the teaching the previous Sunday. If you would like to listen to a recording of the service then head to:- https://downsbaptistchurch.org/sermons/

Obviously things have to be different this year as it is not practical to have a harvest service and collect produce on the day.
DBC Community Greengrocers has a large collection basket in the shop and we have been invited to take any food donations along there to add to their collection.
The sort of items they are looking for are as follows:
Long life milk (Full cream & semi-skimmed)
Couscous & rice
Jam, marmite & peanut butter
Please do ensure that your items are at least within 6 months of the best before date. Thank you kindly.
Heavenly Father, as we begin to think of harvest, we thank you for all the good things you give us. As we thank you for our food and your abundant provision, we remember all those who do not have enough for even one proper meal each day. Lord, comfort and bless all those who suffer because of the greed of others. Thank you too for the work of the Brighton & Hove City Mission. Please use the team mightily in these days and bless all of the clients who use their Food Bank. In Jesus’s name, amen.
