Enrich our Bible Reading: Into the healing of the paralyzed. EM Retreat 11 June

Christians are people of the book: our lives should be informed by the Bible, the Word of God. This book however is not always an easy book to read and understand. We can always improve our way of reading and applying the Word of God in our lives.

The Bible tells us the story of humanity, or in other words the drama of life. When we are so used to entertainment through drama, can dramatic perspectives help us to understand the story God wants to tell us through His Word? This story is our story, therefore it is important to enrich our understanding of it.

In our retreat on 11 June we are very glad to have deacon Felix Du to help us enrich our Bible Reading by using drama. In 2 sessions, he will facilitate us to enter the world of the paralyzed in Mark Chapter 2. We will re-live the Bible story in first-person point of view. We will enter the Bible situation of the paralyzed and his healing. Through this guided drama process, we will gain a more personal experience of the Bible and with hopefully a more insightful understanding of the Bible, especially on healing.

We are going to act out the story but no prior experience in stage performance is required. So do join this retreat filled with rich content and fun experiences. The program is as following:

Passing Offering Bags

Next Sunday 12 March we will resume passing the offering bags in the worship service. This is not about what we give financially. In this part of the liturgy, we want to express our attitude of offering to God what He has given to us, and allow room for bringing the offering physically. Please do not feel obliged to put money in, just because of the passing bag. Let our worshipful heart regulates our hands.

New Start

Starting from today 5th Feb, we will have refreshments after the service!

Anyone who is willing to prepare simple snacks for Sunday mornings, please contact Wendy Ip to coordinate it.

New Fellowship Group for Brothers

With God Father’s gracious love, HKBC English Congregation has been established since 2016.  While the congregation is blessed to have different activities to cater for various groups of members, including the young teens, youth, gospel seekers, new believers etc, time has come to start a  Fellowship focus on the spiritual and support for brothers.

Romans Chapter 12: 2 said “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  “

The good news is that we can achieve the above with encouragement and by leveraging the strengths of the others.  Romans 12:4-5 “For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

Brother fellowship is designed for brothers who have begun his working life and beyond.  Brothers in the congregation are all invited to join.  The first meeting of the Brother fellowship will start in March 2022.  Details will be made available in the next one to two weeks. 

Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please contact Minister Xander.

Adult Sunday School

On Sundays after the Worship Service at 11:45 am there is an Adult Sunday School Class in room 101. This Sunday we still start with the study of the book of James, so this is an invitation for all who are interested.
