Blythswood Shoe Boxes (www.blythswood.org/shoebox)
The appeal this year is already up and running with wrapped boxes and leaflets available in the church. If you don’t want to fill a box but would like to help then donations of toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, facecloths, pens, pencils, colouring books etc will be gratefully accepted to help fill the shoe boxes.
Completed and wrapped shoeboxes need to be ready to leave after the service on Sunday 10th November.
Many thanks for supporting this appeal, Shona C, Stewart 07986 614 02
Looking for help with getting more out of reading the Bible?
Here are a few of our favourite aids to reading the Bible with the expectation of hearing God's
message for today. Since we're online let's start with some online ideas.
UCB's Word for Today or Word for you daily emails open up a short verse or phrase.
Click on their image to visit their site and sign up.
Similarly, click on the WordLive image to this Scripture Union site that offers an email guiding though a slightly longer
Bible passage of the Bible each day.
The Good Book Company's Explore App can be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play.
It contains daily Bible readings with questions to help engage with the Bible. Click on their image to be taken
to their site for details on the app and also their printed notes for all ages.
A wide range of printed notes for all age groups are also available from CWR and from the Scripture Union website shop.
Click on either of their links to visit their websites.
Christian bookshops also stock notes and guides and can offer help.
