Dear RG family,
This Sunday will be a special day, joining Yan Yue in our worship service at 11:00am. The occasion is what is called HKEC (Hong Kong Evangelical Church) Sunday. This is the name of the church conference of which Yan Yue and RiverGrace are a part. There are 20 HKEC churches in Hong Kong, mostly in Kowloon and the New Territories. There is one HKEC church on Hong Kong Island.
All of the churches start with the name Yan _____. "Yan" means "Grace." So the church names are such things as Grace Rain (Yan Yue), Grace Rock (Yan Poon), Grace Forrest (Yan Lam), etc.
That is one of the reasons we call our church RiverGrace. We wanted to have "grace" in the name. Our mother church, Yan Yue Church means Grace Rain. When the rain comes down it flows like a river... thus we decided to call our international church RiverGrace. We want God's grace to flow out in abundance.
All that is to say that on HKEC Sunday, some of the leaders of HKEC come to share in the service, whether sermon or information. It is one of the ways that HKEC keeps in touch with the each of the churches.
Rev. Eric Chan of Yan Lam church, the current General Chairman of HKEC, will be the speaker. The service, will be bi-lingual. Andrew will lead the worship team.
Our normal lunch will follow the service and some from Yan Yue will join. We will also celebrate October birthdays.
In the afternoon, starting around 2:15pm, Rev. Ron Ching, a renowned speaker, will share about the Lord's Prayer. Many of us know it by heart, but do we know fully what we are saying when we repeat or pray it? He will be addressing some of these aspects of the prayer. Please come and bring a friend! This is open to anyone whether you attend RiverGrace or not.
