RiverGrace International HKEC Church. How does that name sound? That is what our church will be named officially. On Thursday P. Tommy and I met with the HKEC Executive Committee. They approved the name and for RiverGrace to become the first International church of the HKEC conference, and the 21st church.
RiverGrace will be officially registered as an independent church 2 to 3 weeks after the application is submitted by HKEC to the Companies Registry. The committee decided there was no need for a Chinese name.
We'll share more about the plans as we work things out. Please continue to pray for this process.
Remember that tomorrow is the joint anniversary worship service of Yan Yue Church. The service starts at 11:00am rather than noon. Rev. Tse will be the preacher and P. Tommy will help with the translation.
After the service, we'll have lunch together with the Yan Yue brothers and sisters at a nearby Chinese yam cha restaurant.
After lunch, the Connect Groups will meet, as well as the the hospitality committee. The hospitality committee will plan for the next three months before we move to UCC. Thanks to all for your hard work in preparing the yummy lunches for all of us. Thanks also to those who help clean up each week. Both are acts of love.
This coming Wednesday we'll have our regular Wed. AM Connect Group at 11:00, as well as the PM Connect groups at 7:00.
On July 30th, we'll have the movie of the month, "The Preacher's Kid". Come and bring your friends! We do this on the last week of months that have 5 Sundays.
Apologies for the lateness of this update. It's been a busy couple of days.
Cindy should have arrived at home in the last hour or so. I will be flying out, as well, on Thursday. I'll still have Internet contact, but please direct any questions to P. Tommy or P. Aime if you need any help.
