The COVID-19 crisis has caused not only great fear, but also stirred up no small amount of tension as well. Christians have been labelled socially irresponsible for meeting together, and some have been expressly forbidden by employers or family members from going to church. Some Christians themselves are asking, “Why do we even still want to meet at all?” This situation presents us with a wonderful opportunity to examine how we can respond to the pandemic without panic, as well as adopt precautions without yield to pressure. That’s why this week we have interrupted our preaching schedule just to bring you this special message by Pastor Tiak.
You may reject God because you believe you are fine just as you are. But could your confidence be due to lack of knowledge about what you are missing out on? Or ignorance about your true condition? You owe it to yourself to find out more before you decide.
We are commanded to "love the Lord our God with all our heart, our mind and our strength". However, it is practically impossible to love someone whom we don't know for sure is real, or to show affection to someone whose reliability we doubt. For Christians and non-Christians alike, embracing the reality of God is neither just about solving a philosophical riddle nor having a personal subjective feeling. Rather, it involves a multidimensional quest.
Changes to Weekend Services and Cell Group Meetings
We will be gathering in modified Cell Groups known as CG-based Home Gatherings (“CHG”) in members’ homes in place of our regular weekend services and our usual weekly Friday evening Cell Group meetings.
