Dear RG family,
In life, we all face trials and difficult situations. Sometimes it's almost enough that we lose hope. When we face those difficulties, we may blame the Lord that he has caused the problems, or at least he has not rescued us out of storms. We may even consider that life is too hard when we follow the Lord, and turn back from following him. Pastor Tommy will be speaking about this on Sunday in in his sermon entitled "Have you ever thought...?"
Aboma will be leading the worship team.
The service will be followed by the fellowship lunch, T4T training with Grant at 2:45 and the Cantonese class at 4:30.
Please plan to join us at noon for our service!
Here's another reminder that on November 20th HKEC will be having a baptismal service. If you would like to be baptized, please let one of us pastors know so we can arrange the baptismal course and get approval from the deacons.
Last Sunday I mentioned that we would be taking a free will offering for Jane, who's home was burned in the Philippines. If you would like to give something to help her out, please put the money in one of the church envelopes and write Jane's name on it. You can place it in the offering on Sunday. I know she will appreciate it.
Please remain in prayer for the future of Yan Yue and RiverGrace as both church plan for 2017.
Continue to pray for Ivan, Tracy, and their baby girl. Tracy was released from the hospital and is now recovering at home, but the baby, being a premie, will need to remain in the hospital at least a month.
Next Wednesday morning, Grant will continue the training of T4T in the morning fellowship that meets at 11:00am. In the evening we'll have the Cantonese class at 5:30pm, dinner, and then followed by Life Group and the English class. All are welcome to join these activities as well.
