On Sunday, 8 May 2016, the church came together to celebrate Mother’s Day and to show our appreciation for mothers.
Pastor Lawrence Lim prayed over the mothers at the services and declared God’s favour over them. The mothers were also treated to a special item featuring two youths speaking and paying tribute to the mothers, followed by a delightful string quartet performance of the hymn Lamb Of God.
After Senior Pastor Joseph Prince preached about the dispensations and how our Lord Jesus Christ is revealed in the Scriptures, we celebrated Pastor Prince’s birthday in advance and demonstrated our appreciation to him for his ministry and impact on the church. Some of our church leaders and volunteers, the youth ministry, and the congregation of Grace Revolution Church in Dallas, the United States, shared their thoughts and love through a video greeting too.
After that, a group of our pastors presented a song item complete with a hilarious “live” music video in dedication to Pastor Prince before the council chairman, Deacon Matthew Kang, came on stage.
Deacon Matthew took the opportunity to share how his life has been transformed and blessed by the gospel of grace down through the years. He then led the congregation in singing birthday blessings over Pastor Prince after he came on stage along with his wife Wendy and children Jessica and Justin.
As a token of appreciation from the church, the mothers present at the English and Chinese services were blessed with a practical gift of a water bottle. Our children’s ministry Rock Kidz marked Mother’s Day too by having the little ones make stationery holders and write personalised greeting cards to express their love for their mothers.
