Happy New Year! We are closing out the concluding chapter of 2017 and preparing to start a brand-new journey of faith entitled 2018. Will this new year be filled with as much intrigue and surprise, challenges and trials as the year past or will it be completely a different new year with new possibilities? That much I do not know, but I am encouraged by what I learnt in the Christmas story where God repeatedly said, “Do not be afraid”. I think these words should be engraved deep down in our hearts as we embark the year 2018. When I am reminded of these words, I am filled with hope and confidence knowing that God will be with us at each juncture of our journey.
As we start the year 2018, I want to thank all our leaders who served this congregation in 2017. I also want to thank all who will be continuing in leadership and those who are newly entering in their new positions in 2018. We are all called to serve the Lord with gladness. I appeal to all of you to work together. When we are working together and building each up, we honor Jesus and reflect the true Light of Life and build His Kingdom. I encourage all of you to actively engage in our church ministries by using your God given skills and talents for the growing of His Kingdom and the changing of lives in our communities.
Together, we can do more!
