Movember

For the month of November, some men in our congregation and the Carloway congregation are (attempting!) to grow a moustache in order to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. In recent years, three elders in our congregation have received treatment for prostate cancer and there is an elder in Carloway Free Church who is currently receiving treatment. If the “Mo Wee Free” Team manage to stay away from Gillette for the next month, a Team Photo will be posted on Facebook! Please support us in fundraising for Movember, or even better, join our team!

You can support us by donating online at: https://moteam.co/mo-wee-frees?mc=11 or by putting your name down on the sponsor form in the foyer.

 

“May we never rest until we are inside the Kingdom of God, till we have truly repented, really believed, and have been made new creatures in Christ Jesus. If we rest satisfied with being ‘not far from the kingdom,’ we shall find at last that we are shut out forevermore.
