More Saved!

Praise the Lord for the addition of 4 more young souls to the Lord!

Khoo Tze Ren, Aevyn Quek, Leow Huey Jean and Lim Chia Ye all got baptized in Klang today.

Welcome to the family of God!

We hope that we will all help each other to run this Christian race together for we know that the way that leads to eternal life is not easy. But we must be faithful until death, and God will give us the crown of life. :)

And at the end, hopefully we will be able to say;

I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. :)

Philippians 4: 4; Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

On the 30th of December 2010, our very own preacher's son; Ong Ee Gene decided to render obedience to the Gospel and was baptized into the church. Then, the following Sunday, (2 January) 4 young people decided to do likewise and begin their new year as new converts.

Jiao Faye, Jyven, Jaylyn and Joelyn Chan were baptized in the Klang Church Building into the family of God.

We rejoice with the angels in heaven for the addition of 5 new Christians to the Church. :)

We hope they they will grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

And may we all continue to be steadfast in the faith and grounded in the truth.

Year End Gathering 2010

December 31st 2010

It's the end of the year again , and as usual, we gather together to celebrate the new year and reflect back on the things we have done in 2010.
This year was a little bit different though, instead of having dinner first, we had HEAVY SUPPER instead. So at 8pm on Friday ,the place was packed and we had to add more chairs for people to sit. We then started it off by singing hymns and an opening prayer.
After that we had our first devotion or rather, end of the year message by our Elder; Bro. Koay . He, of course, led hymn 75 (Lord I Believe) first and his message was about the God of heaven and how we should always be prepared no matter what happens. And after that we all headed to building B for our HEAVY SUPPER. Awesome Indian food =D
There were also stations there with fun activities such as solving riddles and guessing the correct number ,votes for categories i.e. best dressed and best smile, activites for the kids and also The Flying Paper Aeroplane station! There was also the gift corner where we were extremely generous in giving out gifts.
After our supper and lots of fun, we headed back to building A for more singing and then we had our 2nd devotion/year end message of the night by our Elder; Bro.Steven. Then we had the Sunday School presentation by the kids and also the Sunday School award thingie.. hehe
After that we had the singing presentation by the youths =D

We then had some games conducted by Bro. Joel and then gifts to be given to the winners of the riddles, quiz and also the guess the weight, number and price.
We also gave awards for Best Dressed (male and female) Best Hairstyle (male and female), best smile, best hugs and so on.. and then we also gave a bottle of sparkling juice to the Elders and Deacons, preacher, church secretary and Uncle Raymond! to show our appreciation for the work that they have done throughout the year.
We then formed a circle to countdown to the new year and also to watch the video that the Chans have made for us in Klang..

It has been a great year and we hope and pray that we will be able to do our best again this year.
We thank God for his continual guidance for us all and for the success of the youth blog.

In Christ We Serve,
Ern Shern
