Sermon Series 21 Oct – 18 Nov

Pulpit Series: What The Bible Says About The End Times

The signs tell us that Christ’s return is imminent. But more than just pointing to the signs of His coming, the series will also cover all the critical events of the end times, made known to us in the book of Revelation & in the major prophetic passages in the Bible. What will the Tribulation period be about? Will those who believe in Christ go through the Tribulation? Who is the Antichrist? What is the Millennium & what happens during the millennium reign of Christ? What really is judgement day? What is the New Heaven & New Earth & how different is that from the millennium reign of Christ?

Come prayerfully to learn about these matters and so prepare ourselves as the ready Bride of Christ.

Haggai – Consider Your Ways (4-part Sermon Series) 23 Sep to 14 Oct 2018

Every generation of believers must seek first the kingdom of God. In the book of Haggai, the prophet admonishes and ex-horts the post-exilic community of Israel to prioritise the restoration of God’s temple in Jerusalem over their own pursuits. In doing so, Haggai reminds us of the centrality of God’s presence, provision and purpose and thus the proper priorities of his people. In a world of ever-increasing attractions and concerns which clamour for our attention, Haggai has much to teach us about keeping God and his purposes the main thing.

30 Sep Disheartenment and Hope (2:1-9) Dr Tan Lai Yong
7 Oct Blight and Blessing (2:10-19) Kenneth Wong

Church Wide Series In Aug/Sep 2018: Seeking The Holy Spirit

 

What does God’s word say about who the Holy Spirit is and how He “operates”? How does He make a difference in our lives even as we encounter suffering and trials? Let us journey together to get to know better the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. May we be empowered and transformed as we seek to be filled with and led by Him!

In this church-wide series, we will have:

· a six-part pulpit series

· a 30 Day family devotional pack based on the “Fruit of the Spirit” – to encourage discipleship within families, but which can also be used personally.

· six Bible Study sessions

We will also have an Empower Weekend (Fri 7 & Sat 8 Sep) for you to experience extended times of reflection and ministry based on God’s word.

Sermon Series: Renew Our Love – 1 John

How can one be sure of his/her salvation in Christ & relationship with God? The apostle John gives us the answer in 1 John, the letter to his beloved congregation in Ephesus who were unsettled by false teachings about such matters. In his letter, the apostle reiterates the fundamentals of the faith to reassure his readers of their true fellowship with God. God is light & love & His children walk in His light & love, enabled by faith in the person & work of Jesus Christ, Son of God. As we heed the message of 1 John today, may it also transform us & deepen our knowledge & obedience of God, & our love for Him & one another.
