Bulletin Announcements – 25 August 2013

Baptism Classes:  Baptism classes will commence on the 1st September in preparation for baptism in November.  Classes will be held for 6 consecutive Sundays.  For those who would like to be baptised in November, please see Chee Yee.

Faith Promise Giving – We give thanks to God for the great response.  We have received $197,157, which well exceeds the original $160,000 target. This will make a significant contribution to this year’s mission budget of $238,000. Please keep praying that God will enable us to fulfil our promises and support our missionaries. Faith Promise Giving may be placed in the offering bags using the white or brown Mission Offering envelopes available on the usher’s desk.

This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the founding of our church. Together, our congregations will give thanks to God on Sunday, Nov 10, with a combined Thanksgiving Service at PLC School Croydon (10am), and in the evening a Thanksgiving Banquet at Rhodes Phoenix Restaurant (6pm). Mark this date in your calendars, as we join together as one church before God. Tickets for the seafood banquet will be on sale throughout September ($50 per adult, $20 per primary-school child). Please assist by booking whole tables of 12 with your friends.

Manhood month is on in September and Sam Chan will be exploring topics such as fatherhood, work and sex. A great opportunity to think about and discuss these interesting topics with your friends.

Thank God Alex and Naomi Fung have been promised 85% of their support. The cut-off for their financial support to reach 100% is 1 week away (2nd September).

Keep an eye on the website for updates and resources. Many of the Winterschool handouts and resources are available. You can also catch up on a talk you missed or need to think over again.
