Week 21 (22/05 – 28/05/2017)
- Welcome: We extend a warm welcome to all who are visiting us for the first time. Thank you for joining us at our worship service today. Do come and visit us again. You’re also very welcome to stay back for a time of “Getting to know you better” at our coffee corner.
- Prayer requests: “Upholding you in prayer.” If you have a prayer request, kindly write them down on the “Prayer Request Form” and place it in the “Red Letter Box.” Both may be found on the table at the back of the sanctuary. Our prayer ministry team would be glad to pray for you.
- Cell Group Ministry Conference 2017: A Certain Kind – Discipleship that Redefines Success in Ministry:
Rev. Edmund Chan said, “The compelling question of disciplemaking is not merely, ‘Are we making disciples?’ but rather, ‘What kind of disciples does God call us to reproduce?’ and, more importantly, ‘What kind of disciples are we?’ Be the certain kind!”
We would like you to join us in the movement of God worldwide in intentional disciple-making that develop our churches with ‘the certain kind’ of disciples who are filled with deep conviction in God, undergo transformation of the character and live the life of full consecration to the Lord and His will.
The main speaker is Rev. Tan Kay Kiong, Senior Pastor of Covenant Evangelical Free Church, Singapore. He is a Shepherd-Leader at heart who loves to see people discover their full potential in God.
Date: 16-18 June 2017

- Reigniting Intentional Discipleship Seminar:
Being a “disciple” is the common calling of all who seek to follow Jesus Christ. But what does it mean? And, crucially, for many of us who know we are not the disciples we should or even could be, how might we become better disciples of our Lord? These key themes, and how we might become more “intentional” about our discipleship, both as individuals and as members of Christ’s Church, will be covered by Rev. Dr. Martyn Atkins, former President of the Methodist Conference and former General Secretary of the British Methodist Church. He has travelled widely, preaching and teaching in many countries around the world, particularly within the world Methodist family.
Date: 8-9 July 2017
Venue: Wesley Methodist Church, Kuala Lumpur
Cost per person: (Early Bird) RM 40, (Normal) RM 50, (Late) RM 60

- Parenting Workshop (Mandarin) – “Parent-Child Reading Method”:
In this digital era, many parents are worrying about how to instil reading habits in their children at a young age. Is there really a method for parents to encourage reading in children? Understanding and mastering this reading method is necessary for both parents and children. This workshop is suitable for children below Primary One. Those interested are encouraged to come and learn.
Date: 10th June 2017 (Sat)
Time: 9 a.m. to 1p.m.
Venue: Christian Education Center
Speaker: Dr. Samuel Chan (Chief Operating Officer of Family Keepers Malaysia; Psychology Lecturer, and Counsellor at Raffles University Iskandar).
Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served. Participants are required to bring along a picture book, which would allow parents to practice reading with their children. For those interested, please call the church office to register with sister May Fei.
- Council of Churches Malaysia (CCM) – Urgent Appeal to Save Millions from Starvation:
The world’s largest humanitarian crisis in 70 years has been declared in three African countries on the brink of famine. Drought and the conflict-fueled hunger crises in Nigeria, Somalia, and South Sudan have culminated in a trio of potential famines hitting almost simultaneously. Nearly 16 million people in the three countries are at risk of dying within months.
CCM has appealed to churches in Malaysia to give freely and help save millions from dying. The money collected during the Offering for TODAY’S service will be channelled towards ACT Alliance International, where ground work for humanitarian aid has already begun. Please give generously in the spirit of Christian mercy and compassion.
- Day of Prayer: Next Saturday will be a Day of Prayer for the Nation service, where Methodist congregations around Malaysia are encouraged to pray together in place of our regular worship services. Join us as we stand in the gap for our nation and intercede as one body of Christ.
