Dear RiverGrace Family,
Those who were able to attend the Hong Kong Gospel Festival last Sunday in the Hong Kong Stadium were blessed with good worship songs, testimonies and a gospel sermon.
This coming Sunday we’ll return to our normal service at 12noon at United Christian College. We’ll have communion since we did not have it last week. We’ll also have another farewell, as Oladunni will be returning to her home country. Cindy will lead the worship team and songs, and Pastor Tommy will be preaching from Nehemiah 11 and 12.
The Filipina Connect Groups will meet after our normal lunch, and we’ll also have a Deacons’ meeting in the OMS Office to discuss the 2018 RiverGrace church plan. And we are having a staff planning retreat tomorrow (Friday) afternoon), as well, to also make plans. We covet your prayers for God’s design and wisdom..
Apologies for giving the wrong date for our Christmas party last week. It will be on Monday, Christmas Day, December 25, not the 26th as I had suggested. We’ll sing, have a Christmas devotional, Enjoy Christmas lunch, play games and have a gift exchange. We will not have any scheduled activities the 26th, Boxing Day, as it is not a statutory holiday.
Also on Sunday the 31st, the last day of the year, we’ll have a New Year Family retreat. We’ll have our normal service starting at 12, After lunch we’ll enjoy a time of sharing has done in 2016, We’ll also have a time of prayer for the school, and for 2018. We’ll have a hot pot dinner at 6:00,, and play sports or table games until about 11:00pm. Then we’ll have a time of singing, praise and ending in prayer in time to watch the countdown to 2018.
I’ll give more details before the events.
