Sermon Notes

Speaker: Eld David Leong & Joel Khoo
[ 8.30am & 10.30am ]

The Household of God(liness)

1 Timothy 4-5

1. The Younger serving the Older — exhorting them to godliness by:

a. Training yourselves in godliness (4:6-12)

b. Devoting yourselves to Scripture (4:11-16)

2. The whole Household of God — encouraging each other to godliness 
(5:1-2)

Conclusion: Why does the godliness of God’s household matter? (3:14-16)

Reflection Questions:

  1. What was one thing that you were struck by from the passage or sermon?
  2. Why should we exhort each other across generations to godliness & hope? What if the church was not doing that?
  3. How can we be exhorting one another to godliness across the generations? Share with one another if you have experienced this inter-generational encouragement yourself.

Speaker: Eld Chan Kin Yip & Eld Reginald Tan
[ 3pm & 5pm ]

Follow the Leader

Mark 10:35-45

Jesus on Leadership

Reflections from a baby boomer

Stories from a millennial

Follow the Leader

Reflection Questions:

  1. What does Jesus teach us about leadership? 
  2. Why would anyone want to step up to lead in God’s church? What is there to be gained? 
  3. What benefit is there when the church has both older and younger leaders?
Prayer Points

Our Church

Our Ministry Staff & Apprentices – We thank God for the ministry and service of our sister, Tay Lihui, who will be stepping down from her position as apprentice from July onwards. Do pray for her in her next season of life and ministry.

Pray for three other apprentices, Vanessa Lee, Joel Khoo, and Jacqueline Lie who will be appointed as ministry staff from July onwards. May God continue to strengthen them and grant them clarity in their ministry journey ahead.

Pray for Danny Chua who is commencing his full-time theological studies (Master of Divinity), that God will give him and his family perseverance and joy for the new season ahead.

Missions Month – As we look forward to be challenged by sermons, and consider the vast harvest fields out there through the workshops and prayer meetings, pray that our hearts will be listening and that each one of us will grow in conviction that, as disciples of Jesus, we are all on mission 
for Him.

Our People

Pastor Vernon Quek will be undergoing gallstones removal surgery on Monday, 10.30am. Do pray for a smooth and successful surgery, and speedy recovery.

Daniel Tay – We thank God for the good news that his tumour was removed completely as test result showed that the 5cm margin is all cleared of any cancer cells. Continue to pray for Daniel to make good progress in his recovery.

Our World

India – Pray for Bro K who is training to be a field worker. Recently, he was diagnosed to have advanced osteoarthritis, and that is causing him much pain as well as difficulty with mobility so much so that he is currently unable to continue with his theological studies. Praise God for the community of gospel workers who have rallied around him to help in care for him at this time. As his family is unable to afford the dual hip replacement surgery needed to treat his condition, his community of gospel workers have raised some funds for this. Pray that the Lord will provide the remaining funds that are needed so that he can have this surgery.

Pray also for Bro B (who lost part of his left leg after being hit by a bus in 2021 and has a young daughter staying with him). Some of you might remember praying for him. He is now diabetic, and his right leg is currently swollen and needs to be examined. These conditions have led to him having hearing and vision problems. Pray for healing and grace from God to strengthen and encourage him.

Indonesia – Praise God for the work in remote villages where people are growing in their understanding of who Jesus is. Recently, what should have been a 7-hour journey to one of these villages became a 12 hour one instead because of bad road conditions. Pray for continued perseverance and strength for the workers in these areas as they seek to share the love and light of Christ here.

Word in Season

God With Us Everywhere

By Ng Zhiwen

“Emmanuel” – it means “God is with us”. This scriptural truth has been a tremendous source of comfort and encouragement for us who have believed in Jesus. Once alienated from God, we now become a dwelling place for God. The original 12 disciples understood Emmanuel as God walking among them in the person of Jesus. Later, God continues with them through His Spirit who dwelled in them. Just like them, we have the Spirit dwelling in us. This may have been what Jesus meant when He said, “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20). He is ever present with His people.

Now think about the truth of Emmanuel in this way: Wherever we go, we carry God’s presence. That is truly life-changing.

Because of this, we do not think of the Christian life merely in terms of attending church or joining in Christian activities, as if we can switch on and off our being Christian. Neither is it just about having a religious identity or lifestyle. We also will not talk about God being with us as simply that He is always standing by as a life-consultant we can call on (“You can ask him for help or guidance whenever you need!”).

Emmanuel means so much more. It means that in every time, and in every situation, we may be deeply conscious of the very presence of God, whether we feel it or not. We do not think of how we can ‘run away from the affairs of this world’ to be with Jesus, but we also think about how we view all our affairs in this world through the eyes of Jesus. We may always ask of God what His interest and purpose is for every moment of our lives. Every thought, every word, every action and inaction takes place before the presence of God. Imagine that.

Emmanuel means that no matter who is looking at us, they should see clear signs of one who faithfully carries the presence of God with him or her. “Ah, so this is what godliness looks like,” people should say of us, because God is with us.

The truth of Emmanuel is why we will not confine our interests to what we do when we gather as God’s people. We are also deeply interested in how each and every one of us sees ourselves walking with Jesus when we scatter throughout the week. This is why come Missions Month, we will spend a lot of time unpacking the theme of Everyone Missional Everywhere. We may talk about this because God is with us everywhere, looking to redeem every part and every moment of our lives, for His glory.

Once we grasp this, life will never be the same again.
