Showing Love For Mr Lee Kuan Yew And Our Nation

On Monday, 23 March 2015, Singaporeans awoke to the sad news of the passing of their first Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Thousands of our church volunteers pitched in within the week to honour his memory and to show our love and support for the nation on Sunday, 29 March 2015.

Marking Mr Lee’s passing in the services

Calling him a “leader of leaders”, Pastor Prince shared with the congregation that Mr Lee’s leadership was one that was unparalleled. He also expressed his gratitude towards the nation’s first Prime Minister who laid the foundation stones of modern-day Singapore.

Black ribbons were distributed to our congregation who pinned them on their shirts to mark the passing of Mr Lee. As a church, we observed a minute of silence in honour of Mr Lee at our English, Chinese and youth services. Pastor Lawrence Lim also prayed together with the church for the Lord’s comfort to be on Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his family during this difficult period.

During the third service, the sermon was interrupted to show the live broadcast of Mr Lee’s State Funeral Service. A minute of silence nationwide followed the sound of the trumpet blowing a solemn dirge at the State Funeral Service. The nation and our church then recited Singapore’s National Pledge and sung the National Anthem.

Our youth, Dominic Chin and Jermaine Leong, together with the worship team, also performed the song You First Believed. Senior Pastor Joseph Prince, who teaches the church to have a culture of honour and to show honour where it is due, had commissioned the youth to honour Mr Lee in a public way. Inspired, Dominic wrote the song and released it online in 2014. Little did Dominic know that after Mr Lee viewed the video, he would write a letter of appreciation to thank Dominic.

Showing our love and support at the State Funeral Procession

Besides attending the Sunday services, many of our volunteers lined the roads along the route of the State Funeral Procession of Mr Lee to honour the departed leader. They braved the rain to distribute free bottled water, food and umbrellas to the crowd who had gathered to await the passing of Mr Lee’s cortege. A 10 metre-long banner was also displayed on the roadside to show our love and appreciation to Mr Lee.
