Once again we bid another farewell, this time to Maeshel, one of our Filipinas who will return home in a few days. Maeshel was baptized in RiverGrace three years ago. Like all of our ladies who return to the Philippines for good, we send her off with our prayers that she will stay true to the Lord and make an impact with her faith as she returns to her family and friends.
I hope you can join us this coming Sunday for our worship service at 12 noon. We'll be talking about some of the very important aspects of our relationships with each other, particularly in a discipleship relationship, but aspects that are also true in small groups, fellowships, and the broader church. This is another training topic we are dealing with in our preparation for matching people in doing discipleship.
Marjorie will lead the worship in singing, and the service will be followed by our fellowship lunch. At 2:45 we'll host the next session of the English version of Alpha. It's not to late to join and bring your friends who may not yet have a relationship with Jesus.
Cindy and I will be in Thailand from January 30 to February 6. You'll be in good hands with Pastor Tommy. Tommy will be preaching on January 31 and though Cindy and I will be back, Andrew will preach on January 7.
The men's and ladies' fellowships will be meeting as normal. Raymond and Robert will lead the discussion. In the Life group, Derek and Tommy will be leading. Derek will be introducing the new Alpha courses to the group.
From February 7-9, which is Chinese New Year, a ministry team from Faith Fellowship, Manila will be with us to present a “Father’s Heart Conference”. See the flier on the bulletin board for details. If you need fliers to give your friends, see Cindy A. Pray that all of us will be impacted by His heart for us and all His children.
This coming Wednesday, January 27, we'll have a special celebration (one week early), of Chinese New Year. We'll have pun choi for our dinner and Tommy will lead us in an activity.
If you have not yet turned in your faith promise commitment, please do so within the next week or so. Thanks much.
