  • A meditation retreat will be held today between 2pm and 4pm at the main hall. The material written will be in English. But the verbal instruction will be in Cantonese. The topic is “Healing Life’s Wounds – 2) A Satisfied Heart ”. The details and sign-up sheet have been posted on the bulletin board.

Immediately after the Joint Service, we will have a potluck lunch together. There is no need to register for the event. Those who want to join please bring some food for sharing. The portion to bring shall be a little bit more than enough to feed yourself or your family for lunch. As usual, please also bring your own utensils. Please note that we have limited reheating facilities (like microwaves or ovens), so if possible please plan to bring food that can be consumed without reheating.

Also, we will recruit volunteers to drive the residents to do grocery shopping once a month. Please contact Felix Loo for more details. 
  • Please remain vigilant at all times (especially in the evenings) and report anything suspicious outside the church building for there were some unfriendly acts in the neighborhood lately.
