Today is Father's Day and our church had a celebration organized by the children and youth. They presented a song to all the fathers in our church. The young people also made two cup cakes for each father. (see picture. the cakes tasted nice too! ). The fathers appreciate this gesture because usually Mother's Day is a bigger celebration here. Our Brother Song said a prayer for all fathers after the song presentation and cup-cakes gifts were given out.
Structured to Serve
Bother Ho shared on the about subject. It is one of the 6 ethos of our church which our elders would like to see implemented in the church. Pastor Ben from Hong Kong has coached us for about one and the half years and trying to help us to go forward. Brother Ho based his sharing on Mark 10:35 - 45. This is a passage where John and James wanted Jesus to let them sit one at the right and one at the left of Jesus. Jesus taught one who wanted to be great in the eyes of God one must be a servant. Brother Ho shared that if one wanted to be great you have to:
1. Serve with humility
2. Serve without fear with holiness and righteousness
3. Serve faithfully
4. Serve without losing your heart
