Kickstarting Our Pre-Teen Sunday School! (Every 2nd and 4th Sunday)

PreTeenSundaySchool

Greetings! The Pre-teens Sunday School began at BLC today with an exploration into… Greetings: from verbal and non-verbal greetings across cultures around the world, to the different greetings found in the Bible.

We learned why we share the peace of God at BLC on Sundays as a congregational greeting; we learned about each other’s names, ages, schools, and favourite flavours of ice cream; and then we greeted each other with a holy kiss. >.<

Just kidding!

But we did learn about that in the Bible. Last but not least, we also learned the proper way to shake hands by watching this excellent instructional video:

Join us every 2nd and 4th Sunday as we explore our world,  the world of the Bible, and become BLC BFFs with one another.

We are 9 through 12 year-old girls, boys, and camels. Be there or be… just be there. 😀

Bishop’s Chinese New Year Greetings

“Sing for joy to God our strength! Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon, and when the moon is full, on the day of our festival.” For the Lord says, “I removed the burden from their shoulders; … you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”  Psa 81: 1-3,6,16.

Gong Xi! Gong Xi!

As we step into a new Lunar New Year, my family and I wish all our pastors, members and friends a year blessed with God’s peace and joy. May your Chinese New Year also be filled with much happiness, good health, progress and prosperity!

I hope that all of us will take this festive occasion to renew and strengthen our relationships with God, family and friends. Learn to give and forgive, and be confident that, in this New Year, God will enable us ‘to do all things through Him who gives us strength.’

And don’t forget, drive safe when you ‘balik kampung’!

Bishop Philip Lok & Family CNY January 2012

“你 们 当 向 神 我 们 的 力 量 大 声 欢 呼 , 向 雅 各 的 神 发 声 欢 乐,唱 起 诗 歌 , 打 手 鼓 , 弹 美 琴 与 瑟 。当 在 月 朔 , 并 月 望 , 我 们 过 节 的 日 期 , 吹 角。” 神 说 , 我 使 你 的 肩 得 脱 重 担 , 你 的 手 放 下 筐 子 。他 也 必 拿 上 好 的 麦 子 给 他 们 吃 。 有 拿 从 磐 石 出 的 蜂 蜜 , 叫 他 们 饱 足 。 诗81:1-3,6,16

恭喜!!恭喜!!

在这农历新年里,本人及家人愿各位教牧、会友及朋友满有神的平安及喜乐,大家在新的一年都欢喜快乐、健康、进步及兴盛。

期望我们能乘着这佳节更新及加强与神、家人及朋友的关系,学习付出及宽恕,在新的一年有信心神能让我们“藉着他所赐的力量凡事都能。”

提醒大家在回乡时小心驾驶!

Happy New Year 2012 everyone! As we lay our past “baggage” at the foot of the Cross, let us – from that very same Cross – look forward to a New Hope.
