Dear family in Christ
A special thanks to all the Children Ministry leaders and teachers for your commitment and perseverance during this challenging year in teaching the children over Zoom and for your love and care for all the children. What a great joy to see so many children back in church last Saturday for Children’s Ministry after seven months of circuit breaker and phase two precautionary measures. The children spent time together learning the Word of God and also packed special gift bags that were distributed to 50 needy migrant workers at the SG Accident Help Centre. It was our way of teaching the children about rendering practical help in missions as part of our church missions month.
It is so wonderful and encouraging to see brothers and sisters gradually returning and gathering for on-site physical worship services. In recent weeks, the attendance at the English and Mandarin services were almost to full capacity of 50 persons. We thank the Lord that we have received approval from Ministry of Community, Culture and Youth (MCCY) for our seating capacity to be increased to 100 attendees, divided into two zones of 50 people each, with the necessary safe distancing measures in place. We seek your understanding and cooperation in effective implementation of these important safe distancing measures. For the English services, this increased capacity of 100 will take effect from Saturday, 5 December 2020. For the Mandarin service, it will take effect from Sunday, 13 December.
During this challenging Covid-19 pandemic year, let us continue to draw strength from the Lord and find our rest in Him. Let us continue to care and encourage one another and uphold one another in fervent prayers for God’s grace and peace. If you need a listening ear, feel free to contact myself, the pastors or pastoral staff, or your cell leader for a chat and prayer.
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” 3 John 1:2
