Themed Glory To Glory, the special programme on Sunday, 17 May 2015 celebrated how the Lord in His goodness has blessed the church abundantly through the years. We also appreciated and showed our love for our Senior Pastor Joseph Prince, whose birthday falls on 15 May.
The day’s services began with a lively time of praise and worship, followed by the partaking of the Holy Communion together.
In his sermon, Pastor Prince shared that true repentance comes about when we have a fresh revelation of Jesus and His heart of goodness towards us. He also drew from John 20 to unveil the goodness and grace of the Lord in restoring peace and joy to His disciples even when they were overcome by fears and doubts.
In closing, Pastor Prince shared a testimony of a brother from Australia who experienced victory over destructive habits after believing in the gospel and the goodness of God.
Pastor Prince and the congregation members then enjoyed a light-hearted video put together by our pastors and the creative team. In it, our pastors gamely donned superhero outfits and acted in a hilarious skit revolving around an investigation of a missing letter from the preaching backdrop.
They then wrapped up the performance by singing a song on God’s “un-un-un-un-unmerited” favour — an ingenious spoof of the catchy song Unbelievable that went viral on social media recently.
At this point, Deacon Matthew Kang, Chairman of the church council, thanked Pastor Prince for faithfully preaching the gospel of grace and for unveiling Jesus to the people, causing them to be transformed from glory to glory.
Through live camera feeds to The Star Performing Arts Centre, congregation members from Marina Bay Sands and our secondary school youths from Shine Auditorium were seen waving from where they were seated to show their appreciation for Pastor Prince, while Grace Revolution Church in Dallas, the United States, sent a birthday greeting on video.
After Pastor Prince’s beloved wife Wendy and their children, Jessica and Justin, joined him on stage, the church sang a birthday song and birthday blessings over Pastor Prince.
Pastor Prince gave the glory to Jesus, and expressed his heartfelt gratitude towards the pastors, volunteers and the church for their prayers and a memorable celebration.
