On Sunday, 4 May 2014, thousands of mothers were acknowledged and appreciated at all four of our English services as well as at our Hokkien and Mandarin services.
A classic number from the late eighties, Goodnight Kiss, was presented by the creative team to pay tribute to the mothers in the house. The impactful and emotional lyrics told of a mother’s reluctance to say goodbye to those days when she could kiss her baby goodnight. Each sentence tugged at the heartstrings of many mums. “The song is very beautiful and it reminds me to cherish this time when my children are still young,” shared Stephanie Tan, a mother of three.
During her sermon, Pastor Lim Lian Neo, the speaker for the day, shared the importance of staying in peace by trusting in the Lord. She also assured the mothers that when they rest in God, He would take care of their children.
Towards the end of each service, Pastor Lian pronounced a blessing over all the mothers and prayed that they would enjoy greater intimacy with the Lord as the days passed, and grow in wisdom and strength for the different roles they play as mothers, wives and daughters.
As an expression of its love and appreciation for the mothers, the church presented them with a special card, chocolates and on Sunday, 18 May 2014, a bear shaped tote bag. Some mums received personalised art pieces too, created by their little ones under the guidance of their Rock Kidz teachers.
Over at the Hokkien and Mandarin services, the mothers were also blessed by Pastor Christina Wee’s sermon, a special drama and song items in celebration of them.
Beloveds, as a church, let’s continue to pray for God’s protection and wisdom upon all our mums and for them to experience a greater measure of God’s love in the days to come!
