Dear RiverGrace Family,
The weeks are full and flying by quickly before our independence and move to United Chrisitan College. We have only two more Sundays in Yan Yue, the October 1 outing, and then on October 8 we'll meet at UCC. Thank God for his help in the process.
This Sunday my colleague and boss, Paul, will be sharing the sermon for us. Paul's wife. Michelle, will also join him for our service. I will be leading the worship. We'll also celebrate September birthdays as it will be the last meal hour hospitality team will prepare at Yan Yue.
Please pray for Saturday's (Sept. 16) Leadership Team meeting. We'll be reflecting on, and discussing our new status as and independent church, and the ministry possibilities as we move to UCC.
After the service we'll have our lunch and birthday celebrations, and after lunch Cindy will need some help to pack up the kitchen to prepare for our move on September 24th. We need volunteers to help do that task.
This is the week of sign up sheets!
Regarding the move to UCC on the 24th, we hope all of you will be willing to lend a hand so it will go quickly and smoothly. There's a sign up sheet, and we'll need some people in Yan Yue to help load the truck, and we'll need some to go to UCC to help unload the truck. Don't wear your Sunday best that day!
As we will begin holding our Sunday services at UCC on October 8, we are going to need more help and volunteers each Sunday. However, I divided some of the tasks so that those who are serving on any given Sunday, will not have too much to do. For example, there will be a setup team before the service, and a different team to reset the room after the service.
This coming Sunday we'll have a sign-up sheet. Thanks you for considering how you can contribute to the smooth operations of the church. I'll explain more on Sunday.
If you plan to have lunch after the joint service, or BBQ at 5:30pm on October 1, the deadline for signing up is September 24. Yan Yue needs to inform the camp as to how many people will be eating. That service begins at 10:15 at Suen Douh Camp in Fanling.
