"Ben Is No More"

This year's YDP has just ended and i must admit that it was a bittersweet experience.

As you all know, we lost a brother in Christ, Bro. Benjamin Tee passed away on the 27th of December 2007 at about 4.00 in the afternoon. I will spare you the details of his passing as i do not think it is important as to how he died but more pertinently comes the question of what do we do now. The last few days have been taxing on everyone of us. We cried our hearts out.

But again, what should we do now?

Is it right to cry? Is it right to grieve? Is it right to mourn?
In John 11.35 ; Jesus wept.
Even Jesus, the Son of God, wept over the death of his good friend Lazarus.
It is alright to cry. For even our Lord Jesus wept.
It is human nature to cry over the loss of a loved one.

But be comforted.
In 1 Thess 4:13-18
" But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep(dead), lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. "

God will bring with him, those who sleep in Jesus.

In Matt 5:4
" Blessed are those who mourn,For they shall be comforted. "

Ps 116:15
" Precious in the sight of the LORD, Is the death of His saints. "

Why God called him back even while he was so young?
Isa 55:8-9
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth,So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts."

We may not understand why God does what he does but we must trust that God knows what is best for us, eventhough we might not know it yet.

Be prepared
James 4:13-15
" Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."

Heb 9:2727
" And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment. "

Life is indeed like a vapor. We do not know when God will call us back to him. But we do know that we will all die one day. The only question is "Are we right with God?" For he will judge us all according to our actions.

2 Tim 4:1-24:1
"I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. "

Do these things so that we can say as Paul said in 2 Tim 4:7-87
" I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. "

2 Sam 12:22-23
And he said, "While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, 'Who can tell whether the LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?' "But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me."

Death is not the end, but it is rather the beginning of the journey home.
John 14:1-3
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

Be assured brethren that Benjamin is with God in heaven today.
It is Well with his Soul.

Let us never forget our Roots

Today, the Sunday School held the open day to bring in the new "recruits".
The event started at about 3 and ended around 5.30 in the afternoon.
Though preparations took weeks of dedication and hard work!
The kids were all geared up and ready for a fun time in their Colouring & Drawing Competition!

Meanwhile, the adults were in building A watching "Searching for the Truth".
Each visitor got a door gift with that DVD included inside. (:
After about 2 hours through the event, the kids with the most creative/nicest artworks in their age groups got a prize!
Everyone got a goody bag filled with lotsa SWEET stuff. =D i did too. haha!
And i quote the famous su yen,

Su yen

"so did you enjoy yourself today, su yen?
" not fun la..."
*teacher astonished!* "WHY?!"
"cause i didn't get the prize"
". . . .*dots*. . ."

so cute! Life's not all about winning la su yen. =X
Anyway, there was a Tea Break to end the successful event! Mhhhmhhmmm!
Overall there were about 16, yes SIXTEEN, new enrollments!
*Clap Clap*
Gud job to all the organisers of the event!

After the event as i was checking out the new look of our sunday school i stumbled upon old memories!
Ahh...a picture board! what a normal, boring thing...Owh WAIT!

Who's that! L-Khoo Tze Wei, klang's very own Goku-son! xD R-Willy Ling, now in Singapore furthering his studies!
Wooot! L-Ashley?!?!? is that you!??! =X hahaha! R- Tan Sze Yin! so, you two were bestest of friends even back then, huh...

L-Reuben Chirng! Bellow Aunty Chong Foo-Ching Lee! Beside her(partially blocked)-Chien Chern! above him-chee kiang!, the stranglers brother! ahhahaha, now working at singapore! worshiping with the jurong congregation
sorry, cant really make out the rest..don't think i was born yet back when the picture was taken...ahhaha!

With the Pear in his mouth!- Jonathan Chan, so he was strange even from the begining! =P
R, staring right at the camera-Khoo Tze Wei, cool cucumber
In between the two-Joel Kirk, all sama gang since then la...

So sorry bout the blurness in this picture, just couldn't stop laughing! =D
L-R, Hao Shen, Raymond, Ian
Top-Debbie!Dunno who's this nerd wan...wear Winnie the Pooh shirt. LoooL

Haha! there are plenty more pictures where those came from! Drop by the Sunday School one of these days and see just how much we've forgotten! U'd be surprised. (=

The point of this is actually to remind us of where we came from, our roots so to speak.
Most of us grew up in the Sunday School.
We had fun. Sang Songs with funny hand gestures. Really energetic way back then!
Even did a play...remember?
yeah, those were the good old days!
We had fun back then, so why not we do our out-most best to make the current batch's experience just as memorable!
Help out whenever called upon! Doing abit of refurbishing never hurt anyone! Show a little more acknowledgment to the coordinators of the Sunday School.
To work with kids that have too much time and energy can really test your patience sometimes. It's not easy, so we should never take it for granted!
Auntie Lily has plans for the year end gathering for the youth as well as the Sunday School kids! So, be encouraging, be supportive and make this years Year End Meet one to remember!

Our roots, people, our roots...

In God we serve,



THE Youth Planning Session which was scheduled for the 9th of December has been

It will be held shortly after this year's YDP.
As for the dates, we'll just have to wait for a confirmation.

Bible Software

I was just browsing around the web when i stumbled upon free bible software.
Basically what it is is a Bible, except it's a digitized version that can be read, referred, referenced and tonnes of other stuff that could make searching the Scriptures very much easier.
It's called e-sword.
Here's the link where you can go download it right onto your computer.

Don't worry, there're no viruses or spyware or anything of the such. How do i know? I've downloaded it and scanned it wif AVG, SPYBOT, NORTON and plenty of other anti-virus softwares. Just to make sure that it's absolutely SAFE. =D

Here's a step by step guide on how to get this thing working on your computer. =P

Step 1: Go to the website,

Here is how it will look on your search engine.

Just click download on the first tab as shown in the picture.

Next, select "Save to disc" and then click "OK".
Wait for the download to complete.
FYI, the file's bout 17MBs and will take around 10 minutes or so for a typical streamyx line to download.
Step 2: Install the software.

It will appear on your desktop as soon as u finish the download.

Double click the icon and install the programme.

Step 3: Open the software. (lol.this is really like installing for dummies =P )

Double click the icon and....well the programme will launch la...

Step 4: Using the Software.(click to enlarge)

Okay kids, playtime's over!

Pay attention as using this software can be pretty confusing. Simple once gotten used to.

Firstly, to open a verse from the Bible.
-Simply click the tabs on the left of the window which are labeled according to the books of the Bible. From there you can choose the particular chapter and verse u wish to read.

Secondly, to search for an unfamiliar verse simply click the tab on the top toolbar which is labeled "Bible" and the click "Search". (note, a simpler way is to use the hot keys Ctrl+S)

Then type in a keyword into the search box and click "search". You can also specify which Part of the Bible you wish to search. Whether New Testament, Old Testament, Entire Bible or even by books. The software will then display every verse in the specified search place that contains your keyword along with the book, chapter and verse. By clicking on the verse, it will be previewed in the box bellow. When you've found the verse you're looking for, simply click the "accept" button and the software will display the
verse in it's context.

You're probably wondering WHAT IS with all THE GREEN NUMBERS located next to almost EVERY WORD!

simple. it's the in-built Bible dictionary. When you click on the number beside the word, it will display the meaning, Greek or Hebrew origin and the correct pronunciation. That is, IF you know how to read fenetics. It's pretty useful as we do not need to look into our Oxford Dictionaries or go to to look for the meaning of such a word.

As for the column on the right side of the screen that's blank. That's your workspace where you can type in notes for the lesson you maybe preparing or just for later reference.

As for the other, more finer areas of this software i shall not try to explain. This should be more than enough for you guys to be able to use the software at an optimal level. =D

All Scriptureis given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
(2Tim 3:16-17)

About Us

Just for all you people out there who want to know what we're all about!

We are the youths from the Church of Christ in Klang. Our teachings and beliefs are solely from the Bible and not any creed.

The New Testament contains the complete pattern for the Lord's church; the terms by which it is identified, the message it is to preach, the way in which it is to worship, the blueprint for its organization and the method by which one becomes a member of it. In short, in the New Testament scripture, we are given a pattern for the true church and all who are following that pattern are members of the Lord's church and children of God. The Bible speaks of only one true church; Jesus called it "my church" (Mt 16:18). We seek to be members of that one true church by adhering to the New Testament pattern. We plead for the unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ by a complete return to the faith, worship, and practice of the New Testament. When the New Testament is followed, it simply produces Christians -
nothing more, nothing less.

Jesus prayed that all His followers should be one and not divided into differing groups (Jn 17:20-21). All His people are members of the one church of which Jesus Himself is the only head (Eph 1:22,23). The church has no denominational name or creed, it is simply a group of New Testament Christians making up a local church or church of Christ. The church of Christ has no earthly head or headquarters. Its only head is Jesus Christ who is in Heaven, seated at the right hand of God (Col 3:1). Each congregation of Christians governs itself under the authority of Christ and His word in the New Testament, and seeks to be overseen by elders and served by deacons when there are men who meet all the qualifications laid down in the New Testament (1 Tim 3:1-3). The work of preaching and teaching is done by every member as they have the ability and by men who have given their lives to this work.

We do not claim to be the only Christians, but Christians only. We feel our plea for a return to New Testament Christianity is a valid one. If you are interested in knowing what the Bible teaches about salvation and the true church, you will find a warm and friendly welcome to any of our meetings. If you would like to know more about us, we will be happy to talk with you.

Feel free to come join us for our scheduled services. (:
