The gathering will be followed by a farewell lunch and some time together. You’re most welcome.

8. Job Opportunity!

Stirling Credit Union is moving to a new office in the city centre and we are recruiting a part-time office manager (4 days, 20 hours).

We are also looking to add to our office volunteer staff – one day or two half-days per week.

This is a great opportunity to meet new people while serving our local community. All details available from Gordon Stewart.

Please get in touch if you might be interested.

(An early dedication prayer used in St Mark’s on 20th January 2008)

Living God, as we bring to You our offerings, we also come, as we are whether we are rich, poor, weak or healthy we ask that You make us more like the Lord Jesus.

Take now what we bring and use these gifts in many ways for Your service and glory in the world.

Gladly You receive what we bring; You do not look on it or us with contempt. As we hear all that You would say to us, let us be ready to hear the call of the One who chose to be born in poverty and live in service.

Awaken in us we pray a concern for the poor, the weak and the needy that in our daily living we would see in others the value and potential that You see in them.

Living Christ, faithful one, who promises to be with us at the beginning of our walk with You through to its journey’s end. Walk with us now and be to all those whom we meet, the Lamb of God. Stir up our lives and this community in which we live to hear and understand once more the love and hope of the gospel. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
