Dear RG family,
I hope you had a good Dragon Boat Festival holiday. 24 of us enjoyed a hike and BBQ. Though they had called for some showers, the weather turned out to be fine. I've included photos on Facebook and on the official Web page.
Please let me know if you have any feedback from using UCC last Sunday? We will evaluate / discuss it at the coming Leadership Team meeting, and if you have any suggestions or questions, please let us know.
This coming Sunday, Ginger Pinili will be sharing the message and testimony. You may remember that we as a church prayed for her husband, Pastor Jun. He passed away with cancer nearly two years ago. I think Ginger's story and sharing will be a blessing for all of us.
Michael will lead the worship songs, and we'll have our simple lunch after the service.
I also wanted to alert you to the coming World Refugee Day. In the past years, some of our asylum seekers have had parts of the program. There will be a variety of program items like singing, dancing, a drama and some sharing by refugees and others working with them. I've included a photo of the poster with the information of that even. It will be held at Island ECC church in Quarry Bay, and begin at 7:30. The program is free of charge, and is mainly to raise awareness of the situation in Hong Kong regarding refugees and asylum seekers.
Remember our baptism service on June 25, out near Sheung Shui, at the Home of Loving Faithfulness. There will be a signup sheet this coming Sunday as we need to plan lunches as well as transportation.
There will be a Leadership Team meeting on Sunday after lunch.
The Deacons have changed the schedule for this month's deacon meeting .They will meet on June 7 rather than June 21. Therefore, there will be no life group meetings next Wednesday, but we will plan to meet on June 21.
The Wednesday morning fellowship will meet as usual.

I hope you can come to join us on Sunday!
