Dear family in Christ
As we see the gracious salvation plan in the missional heart of God, may we be a missional church of Spirit-filled committed disciples of Jesus Christ, always ready to take the gospel to the nations.
Let me share a few matters relating to Missions for your prayer and participation.
1. Missions month in November
In November, we will have our annual missions focus month. We are glad to have bishop Kuan Kim Seng to preach on the theme Missio Dei (mission of God) on 3 weekends of 14, 21 and 28 November at both Saturday and Sunday English services. The Mandarin congregation has also invited three guest preachers to share on the theme of missions.
2. Gan Family Chiang Mai Missions
Value all your prayers for Gerry and Yahui as they serve the Lord faithfully at Chiang Mai. Do call them, drop them a text or email them a note of encouragement. Pls see attached October prayer newsletter for your info and prayer.
3. Diocesan Missions Evening 2021
During this period of pandemic, it has been difficult for us to travel to serve in the Deaneries. Hence, Missions Board is bringing the Deaneries to you. Diocesan Missions Evening 2021 is the place
where all 6 Deaneries are gathered to share updates from the ground and also their needs for corporate prayer. We will hear encouraging stories during the breakout sessions. It will be held online on 11 November, Thursday 7.30pm via ZOOM. Registration is required using the QR code in the attached flyer, or at weblink bit.ly/dme2021.
4. “Home” – Cultural show for Chinese New Immigrants
The Diocesan Chinese Board is presenting an online cultural show which will depict how new immigrants feel about finding a home in Singapore and the church. “Home” is a skit that will include dance and songs. It will be screened online on 4 November (Thursday) at 7.30pm. We will inform of the video link when it is available. We encourage you to set aside some time to learn about the life of new Chinese immigrants in Singapore. If you have new immigrant friends, pls invite them to watch this together!
