Christmas Celebrations 2014 — The Coming King

For thousands of years, the prophets spoke of His birth. In the little town of Bethlehem, the world would receive her much-anticipated King — Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God.

On Sunday, 21 December 2014, our Christmas celebrations themed The Coming King opened with the classic hymn Tell Me The Story Of Jesus and ballerinas dancing gracefully against a backdrop of falling snow flakes. The congregation was then brought back in time to old Jerusalem where the wise men of the East, on a search for baby Jesus, encountered King Herod, who ordered a massacre of all baby boys under the age of two. Heart-wrenching scenes of mothers crying over their lost children brought the tragedy home, while a duet of a desolate mother and a young maiden happy and safe in our Lord Jesus pointed poignantly to God's loss of His only Son to bring us — His beloveds — faith hope and love.

So just as Jesus' birth was in a time of great oppression under King Herod's tyranny, we know that amid the world's chaos, we can lift up our heads and anticipate Jesus' return as The Coming King.

The musical ended on a uplifting note with the song Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, our King, the One who will bring us victory through the perilous times in the world today, through the end-time Bible prophecies unfolding before our very eyes.

 


Inspired and moved, worshippers jumped to their feet and broke into exuberant song, praising Jesus and celebrating Christmas with well-loved carols. This was followed by a time of Holy Communion and a special item by a group of singers and cute young kids ringing bells.

 


When Senior Pastor Joseph Prince came on stage, he continued worshipping Jesus. The sweet presence of the Lord was strong and many were raised their hands to testify that they were healed or touched where they stood.

Through his message, Pastor Prince reminded the congregation to hold dear to the truth of John 3:16. He also reminded them of God’s immeasurable love, such that He willingly gave up His Son, Jesus Christ — God’s best gift to mankind, and the only gift that keeps on giving.

“I have been following the church’s Facebook page and have seen glimpses of the rehearsal. I am so blessed to see the complete performance today and to hear the word shared by Pastor Prince. God’s love is truly beautiful and nothing can separate me from Him!” shared 41-year-old church member June Boey.

This celebrative mood could also be felt outside our theatre and meeting halls. The church's leaders, ushers and ambassadors welcomed congregation members to church with Christmas greetings, warm handshakes and candy cane treats. And over at Marina Bay Sands ballrooms, choir members decked out in bright red checked shirts spread festive cheer to our congregation with lively Christmas carols before and after the services. Our Chinese Ministry and Rock Kidz (children’s ministry) also had their share of fun — singing and dancing in the house of God. What a joyous way to celebrate the birth of Jesus!

 

The Benjamin Generation Celebrates!

On Sunday, 6 July 2014, our church marked Youth Day with a service that featured many talents from The Zone, our youth ministry.

As members stepped into The Star Performing Arts Centre and Marina Bay Sands Ballrooms, they were greeted with rousing welcomes and even songs by youths holding placards. During the services, the youths helmed the kick-off announcement, praise and worship, and the special item which featured youths rapping, beat boxing, skateboarding, doing yo-yo stunts, dancing and singing. 

The youths injected much vibrancy and vigour into the services with their talents and heart to serve. Their enthusiasm and energy rubbed off on the other members in the congregation, who were encouraged to believe that the Lord renews their youth and that they are part of the Benjamin Generation favoured by the Lord.

Even the Communion elements used on that day were aptly labelled with a sticker, Jesus Renews My Youth!

Who could forget the humorous video of Pastor Lawrence Lim and Pastor Gabriel Tan at the beach “taking the day off” from their Sunday duties because the youths were in charge that week? Or the bright neon graphics and lyrics that flashed across the LED screens during praise and worship?

A particularly moving moment was when the video testimony of Evita Widjaya, a youth from The Zone, was played. She shared about her miraculous healing from cancer — truly God wants His children to live in divine health.

Citing Bible examples of Joseph and Esther who gained favour in spite of their tough circumstances, the sermon by Senior Pastor Joseph Prince reiterated that God wants us to reign in every area of our lives through His grace and His gift of righteousness. (Romans 5:17)

And after the 4th service, many adults and youths stayed on to dance and sing for joy before the Lord during a time of extended praise and worship.

What a joyful and exuberant round-up to a glorious day!

Honouring Our Fathers

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.

 


Blessed Birthday Pastor Prince!

On Sunday, 11 May 2014, the church put together a special programme to celebrate Pastor Prince’s birthday in advance and to appreciate and honour him for faithfully preaching the unadulterated gospel of grace.

Praise and worship kicked off with a special video montage on the revelation of God’s grace in the body of Christ from generation to generation, and how it is still impacting His people today.

Amutha T. is one of the many whose life has been transformed by the gospel of grace. “I thank God for Pastor Prince. His ministry has blessed me tremendously. I used to be depressed and have thoughts of suicide. But today, I want to live for Jesus and I know He has the best in store for me!”

One of the programme highlights was the skit put up by our pastors, and Visual Arts and Worship servers. This in-house production was based on memorable incidents that Pastor Prince had encountered and shared over the pulpit, starting from the time when he was a young man loving the Word, to finally leaving his comfort zone to embark on his God-given calling to the growth of the church and the spread of the gospel of grace. These events showed how wave upon wave of God's grace was showered on our beloved senior pastor and the church.

This was followed by a song item and photo collage of Pastor Prince’s ministry and life over the years. The song’s meaningful lyrics brought into perspective how Jesus is more important than anything in the world today and how He is the focus of the ministry.

The celebration climaxed with a birthday song from the church, leaders and pastors after Pastor Prince’s wife Wendy and their two children, Jessica and Justin, joined him on stage. He also saw the congregation at Marina Bay Sands and Shine Auditorium waving their hands enthusiastically to express their love and appreciation via live camera feeds during the second service.

Pastor Prince gave thanks to the Lord for all that He has done in his life, and expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the congregation for their prayers and support down through the years.

 


Celebrating Our Mothers

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!
