Mother’s Day

We thank everyone who attended todays special Mother’s Day service at Community Baptist Church, Prestwich. It was a blessing to see all our mums on this wonderful celebration of Godly mothers. So often forgotten, our mums are an integral part of our upbringing.

We learnt today about Hannah and how she gave her son Samuel over to the Lord “I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life” (1 Samuel 1:11 KJV). As we read about the life of Samuel in the Old Testament we see how Hannah is always with him – she nurtures him, provides for him and most importantly prays for him. Samuel was incredibly blessed due in no part to his incredible mother. Hannah loved her son but had incredible faith in her God, she prays “There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God” (1 Samuel 2:2 KJV) What a fabulous testimony this wonderful mother is to all of us.

We also want to thank Cath for her fabulous cupcakes today. They brought an additional ray of sunshine to the church on this special day.
