Dear RG family,
Greetings to our RG family from the USA. My arrival was greeted the next day with a beautiful snow. This morning (Thursday) our temperature was -21 degrees C.
We've enjoyed some family times with our grandkids already. I'll post photos on my page in Facebook.
As for this coming Sunday, Pastor Tommy is the speaker for our worship service with, Rita as the leader of the worship songs and team.
The big event for this coming Sunday is the Christmas Party. It will begin at 2:00pm and include games, a gift exchange, some devotional thoughts about Christmas, and good fellowship. Please invite your friends to join us in this time of celebration. P. Tommy and P. Irma will be leading the party.
Also, around 5:30pm, the Spanish fellowship will meet at the church to have their Christmas party. They will be needing the kitchen at that time as they want to prepare some delicacies from their culture. So there may need to be some adjustments in the kitchen to accommodate the needs of both groups.
Next week both the Wednesday AM fellowship and the Life Group will meet as there will not be a Deacon's meeting for December.
Again, you are reminded that Christmas Sunday, December 25 is a joint worship. service with Yan Yue The service will start at 11:00am, not our regular 12 noon.
And also a reminder that January 1 will be our RG New Year's family retreat, a time to share about God's goodness in 2016, and also to plan for 2017. The retreat will be led by Pastor Tommy and Pastora Aime.
