Dear RG family,
16 of us from RG had a fun outing to Sai Wan Beach last July 1. We hiked a bit over three kilometers to the beach, and then had time enjoying God's creation in one of the prettiest places in Hong Kong. The water was clear and the sea was calm. Believe it or not, with the weather we've been having... storms nearly every day, we did not have any rain while we were at the beach. It held off until later in the afternoon.
On Sunday, Cindy will be back from the Philippines and will be continuing her series on Ephesians. The section she will be covering in chapter 3 talks about a mystery. Do you like mysteries? Maybe you like to solve them. God want's you to solve the mystery of his grace to all peoples. whether Jews or Gentiles. He wants to reveal the mysteries to us about being one with God and one with each other. We will likely never completely understand the depths of these mysteries, but at least we can understand enough about it that we know God's heart. in these matters.
P. Tommy will be leading the worship songs. I will not be at the service because I have to preach at a church in Tung Chung 3 times...once on Saturday evening and 2 times on Sunday morning. They would like me to share about local missions because the church is interested in starting ministry to ethnic minorities. Thus, they want me to share about our experiences with RG. Please keep me in your prayers. I do hope to be back around lunch time.
In the afternoon at 4:00pm, we'll have the baby shower for Selam. I'm not sure what other cultures do, but in the U.S. they usually have a party before the baby is born and shower the parents / baby with useful gifts. There will be some games, food, and more. All are welcome to join that event. If you'd like you can bring a baby gift appropriate for a boy.
As for July 16th joint worship and 62 anniversary of Yan Yue, they will go to yam cha afterwords. If you plan to go, the deadline for signing up for that is this coming Sunday. The planners need to know how many will join because of booking tables. Like our RG lunches, which are on a donation basis, it will be the same with this lunch.
P. Irma and Robert would like to hold a hospitality meeting on Sunday afternoon the 16th of July, after the yam cha.
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.
Wednesday we'll have our AM Connect group at 11:00, and the PM Connect Groups / Spanish fellowship at 7pm.
