Announcements (November 29, 2020)

  1. Thank you for joining our Worship Service on this first Sunday of the Advent Season. “Welcome” and “Thank You!” to Pastor Jorge Lin for sharing God’s Word with us. We pray that our time together before the Lord has been an encouragement to you. We also thank the many brothers and sisters laboring together to make this worship service possible.
  2. From Nov. 19 to December 7, indoor and outdoor gatherings of any size, including In-person Worship Services are prohibited to flatten the curve of COVID-19. All in-person worship, meetings and activities at FEC are on hold until further notice. We will update you of any change as the situation evolves.
  3. Next Sunday (Dec. 6th) we celebrate Holy Communion; let us prepare our hearts to come before the Lord. Due to our virtual Annual Membership Meeting at 11:45 AM, the Service will start at 10:30 AM (instead of 10:45). We encourage you to worship with brothers and sisters using Zoom as this will be the same venue for our AGM.

    Let’s continue to learn, connect and praise the Lord together.

This amount was used to buy items such as school supplies, “wow” toys and clothes for shoeboxes packed at church. The remaining amount was donated to Samaritan’s Purse for shipping costs and “Journey with Jesus”, discipleship lessons to help a child become a faithful follower of Jesus Christ.
