Sunday, 3 July 2016 was Youth Day and youths were celebrated throughout our four English services on that day. Loud cheers were heard at the entrances of our service venues as young people from our youth ministry The Zone waved placards and gave our congregation members a rousing welcome.
The day’s services opened with our youths from The Zone making the announcements. This was followed by a power-packed praise and worship session led by 15 youth worship leaders, accompanied by the youth band. Pastor Daniel Chong, one of our youth ministry pastors, then led the congregation in partaking of the Holy Communion and declaring that their youth has been renewed like the eagles'.
A video was also shown to the congregation to share the highlights at our recent youth camps and remind us that we are called to be God’s light-bearers to the world.
Right after the video, a group of young singers and musicals came on to put up a vibrant song item titled 139. The uplifting song written by New Creation Worship was inspired by Psalm 139, and it spoke of how meaning and hope are found in our Lord Jesus Christ. The song was also made available for download online until Sunday, 24 July 2016 as a gift from the church in celebration of Youth Day.
In his sermon message, Senior Pastor Joseph Prince shared that God is raising up a new generation that is bold and unashamed of His love. He also taught how Jesus’ perfect sacrifice had glorified God and allowed Him to unleash His abundant supply of love and blessings upon His children.
To wrap up the day, our youths put on their dancing shoes and surprised our congregation at The Star Performing Arts Centre with a high-energy flash mob at the end of the first three services!
