As a church, we celebrated our daddies on Sunday, 15 June 2014, which was also Father’s Day in Singapore.
The creative media team presented a heart-tugging item from the perspective of a wayward child, with strong, emotional lyrics that reflected a father’s immense heart of love for his offspring. The item closed with a recitation from 1 John 3:1 — “Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the children of God!” — driving home the assurance that our heavenly Father holds us in His strong hands, no matter what comes our way.
At the end of the service, Pastor Prince prayed blessings of long life, divine health, strength, rest, rejuvenation and provision over the fathers. He also declared that as they experience God’s love, they shall be free from fears and become His beacons of light.
The church also showed its appreciation for each father present through the gift of a mobile Bluetooth speaker, a useful gadget which they could use to listen to sermons or their favourite praise and worship songs.
Similar celebrations also took place at our Hokkien and Mandarin services that day.
