He is Risen! What a powerful truth to give us hope in the dark and tough times we all go through.
To be reminded of Christs death on Good Friday, we will have a Tennebrae service tomorrow eveing at 7:00. All are welcome to this reflective, meaningful, service of Scripture and Song.
I'm sorry I did not send out the weekly newsletter last week to the email list. I was only able to post it on the RiverGrace Website. I was not able to get into the online email service I use for nearly a week. I'm glad it's working now!
Please join us on Sunday for our Easter Sunday service at 12:00 noon. Pastor Tommy will be bringing the Word, and Gee will be leading our worship team and singing.
Last week I mentioned that the previous week had been a very good one. Some significant developments are still in the process, but they're far enough along that I will share them with you briefly.
We've desired to have families to come to RiverGrace with children. However, to this point we've not had enough partners to take that on. Vivian volunteered to help with children when they come. Please pray that we'll get some! The challenge will be for the space to have a Sunday School class.
Also we are planning an English class, taught by Michael. We want to reach out to Mainland Chinese students, in particular, but others are welcome to attend as well. We are now working on timing of the classes and promotion.
In addition, we welcome Grant and Vicky to our RiverGrace family. Grant has 20 years of experience in equipping people to share their story, God's story, discipling others, and training them to plant churches. We hope to open this training up to other HKEC churches as well who have expressed interest in doing something like RiverGrace in their own churches.
This T4T training, as it's called, fits in exactly with our vision of RiverGrace to send out ambassadors to the world. When they go, they'll know how to start churches! Or, if they become part of an existing church, they can start cell groups to help grow the churches and add more people to God's kingdom. We're also working on the timing and promotion of this training. Please pray for these initiatives.
Please pray for safety and good visits for those that will traveling in the next few weeks... Analiza, Reggie, Anielyn, Pao and Nidy, Cindy and Robert, Richard, Grant and Vivian
