On Sunday, 19 June 2016, the church came together to honour the fathers in our midst and celebrate Father’s Day.
After a time of worshipping our heavenly Father, Pastor Lawrence Lim led the congregation in partaking of the Holy Communion in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice. During the service, our church’s creative team put up a beautiful performance of the song, “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us”. This special item, dedicated to all the fathers, opened with the voice of a sweet five-year-old and wrapped up with a soulful duet.
Before Senior Pastor Joseph Prince started preaching, he affirmed fathers of God’s love for them and reminded them of the importance of their role as the head of the house. He then prayed over the fathers to be filled with God’s wisdom and strength all the days of their lives. Pastor Prince then went on to encourage the people to go boldly into the presence of their heavenly Father and receive all the blessings He has prepared for them.
That day, fathers at our English and Chinese services were blessed with a gift as a gesture of appreciation from the church. At the Hokkien and Mandarin services, dads were treated to a traditional Cantonese opera performance by our Chinese Ministry volunteers. And at the end of the services, Pastor Mark Ng prayed a special blessing over the fathers. Over at our children’s ministry Rock Kidz, the little ones wrote personalised cards and created DIY stationery holders for their daddies.
