Fortieth Anniversary of Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church first building.

On Sunday August 17th, 2014, the Kilskeery congregation celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the opening of the first building on the site. Below are pictures from the occasion and recordings of the messages preached by the retired minister of the congregation, Rev. Ivan Foster.







 


The character God requires in a Christian teacher

A lecture given by Rev. Foster at the Free Presbyterian Christian Education Seminar, August 13th, 2014.

“Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him,” II Kings 12:2. Holiness is the result of instruction in righteousness. Man is, by nature, utterly void of all knowledge of holiness and how it is to be attained. Not only is he in utter ignorance of holiness, but he hates instruction in holiness. “Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee,” Psalms 50:17. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction,” Proverbs 1:7. Read moreor listen to the lecture using the player below.



 


A tribute to one of the many – an uncle we never met.

worldwar1sommeUncle George was the fourth child of Leslie and Mary Jane Forster. He was born at the family farm at Ballymackilroy, Lisnaskea, Co. Fermanagh.

He joined the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers while underage. He served in Dublin during the 1916 Easter Rising before going to France.

He was killed in action at Savy Wood, close to the village of Savy which was a few miles from St Quentin, in Picardy. Read more
