Gathering together to worship God is biblically and spiritually significant despite the current restrictions. It shows us what being church is about for we do not follow Christ in isolation but in community – be it gathering online for a season or physically now that we are allowed to do so.
After 6 months, we are reopening our premises for worship services from Sunday 4 October 2020. Even though the government has announced allowance for 100, we will start with one service, in English, for 50 attendees at 9.00 AM. Eventually, we may increase the number or open up more services.
2,000 years ago, God sent his son on a mission for the redemption of mankind. Jesus fulfilled it and commissioned his disciples to go into all the earth and bear the fruit of people who love God. Today, the continuing missions given by Jesus is in its crucial phase because he said that the gospel must be preached to all the world before the end comes. (Matthew 24:14)
Every single child of God has an important part to play in fulfilling Revelations 7:9 to usher in every peoples, languages, nations and tribes (PLaNT) to an eternity of bliss and joy in God’s presence. Let us not waver in His mission, locally as well as cross-culturally.
This month, we share with you various missions work concerning Unreached Peoples’ Groups you can pray for and be active in through the theme, “Here I am Lord, go where, ah?”
It can be missions at our doorstep or somewhere obscure like Kala. How do you know where God wants you to serve? If you knew, are you willing to go?
It is the privilege of members to participate in this AGM service not as a formal duty but as a time for celebration and mutual accountability. Our Lord is present even on AGM Sunday. In view of the COVID-19 situation, this AGM will be convened online:
Date: Sunday 16 August 2020 Part 1: 9.00 am – AGM Worship Service via usual platforms (Worship, Message, Lord’s Supper) Part 2: 10.00am – AGM continues on Live Zoom session (e.g. Reports, Accounts etc)
To participate in the AGM is to affirm your membership to the BFEC family, for no church can function healthily without members affirming their regular participation in their local church.
As such, Article 5 of our Articles of Association states: “All members of the church shall at such intervals and in such manner as may be required by the Church Council, affirm their membership failing which such members shall be transferred from the Register of members to a subsidiary register upon which their membership shall ipso facto be suspended, provided that the Church Council shall have the discretion to restore a person where a reasonable ex-planation has been given.”
Let us make it our goal to affirm our membership once again at this AGM service.
This year, the Elders are pleased to inform members of the following:
