Dear family in Christ
Praise and thanks be to God for a joyous 135th anniversary family service and celebratory lunch & program last Sunday. It is so wonderful to see all five congregations giving thanks to the Lord together for his grace, goodness and faithfulness throughout the generations. It is a joy to welcome guest visitors and family members and also some church members returning in community.
Grateful thanks to everyone who served and helped in planning & coordination, logistics, sound/media and ushering. Joyous thanks to the children, congregations and cell groups who contributed dance and song items and led the ice-breaker games. Praise God for his grace in the lives of those who shared their heartfelt testimonies.
Let us walk faithfully in God’s calling for his Church from generation to generation. We are called to fulfill the purpose of God in Christ. May the presence and love of Christ dwell in our hearts as we reflect the likeness of Christ in our lives. We are called to walk in community as one in Christ. May we walk in a manner worthy of God’s calling and stand in unity on the Church’s one foundation, Jesus Christ.
May the community of St John’s Chapel continue to grow in purpose and unity for the majestic glory of God and the eternal kingdom of God.
“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
