Dear family in Christ
We thank the Lord for pastoral staff Lawrence Mun, who retired from church employment on 30 June 2019. Pastor Lawrence has served faithfully as a full-time staff since March 2006 across three congregations at the Hokkien, Cantonese and Mandarin services. The church held a Thanksgiving lunch on 7 July in appreciation for his ministry. We wish him every spiritual blessing in Christ and a restful retirement.
Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to the community of St John’s Chapel (St John’s Church, Jurong) for the past 135 years. Let us gather joyously for a Thanksgiving worship service and lunch celebrations on Sunday 28 July (10 am to 2 pm). As we see the Return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ drawing near, let us press on as God’s beloved people to grow in unity and purpose in the work of God’s eternal kingdom in the proclamation of the gospel.
“There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6
