Welcome to everyone worshipping with us this morning.  Visitors are encouraged to make themselves known to those around them and to sign the guest book in the vestibule.   All are invited to remain for tea, coffee and conversation following the service.

 

Mr. Victor Vaus, a student at the Presbyterian College and an adherent of this congregation, is leading the worship service for the summer.  Today our musician is Chad Linsley.

 

If anyone is interested in volunteering for Westminster’s Day Camp please see Nathan.  We are looking for a few supervisors, alongside volunteers to provide snacks.  Commitment can be from an hour to the whole week.

 

We ask that you do not wear perfume or after-shave lotion when you come to church, as there are people in the congregation who have an allergic reaction to the scent.

 

Mission Update: Educating for peace in Afghanistan.  “I became a teacher to serve the country.  After three decades of war, Afghanistan needs reconstruction through education,” says Mirwas, the head teacher at a school in Laghman province.  Presbyterian World Service & Development’s girls education project in Afghanistan is not only working to raise awareness about the importance of education for all children, it is also building the capacity of students and teachers to handle social, political, cultural and human rights issues.  In a country struggling to rebuild after decades of conflict, female students and their teachers are learning about child rights and human rights—an incredibly important issue.  The focus on education for girls is helping to raise a generation of young leaders who want to be teachers, lawyers, human rights workers and politicians.  These girls will be forces of renewal and peace for their communities and their country.
