Announcements (October 18, 2020)

  1. Thank you for joining our Worship Service – in-person or remotely. We thank Pastor Sandy Hung for sharing God’s Word with us today; we also thank the many brothers and sisters laboring together to make this worship service possible.
  2. Last Sunday we welcomed our children (K to Gr. 7) to their on-site Sunday School classes. The gymnasium is the zone designated for Children Ministry, separate from the sanctuary and thus able to accommodate up to 50 students and parents. In compliance with Provincial health guidelines, we have 50 seats available for worshipers in the sanctuary. Please register online through our website (fec-richmond.com) if you plan to be at church on Sunday for worship or Sunday School.
  3. A big “Thank you!” to the parents for submitting your child’s thanksgiving artwork for the “Thanksgiving / Praise video to the Lord” shown last Sunday. Special thanks to Jadon and Jeannie Lao for collating the pictures into video format. We also thank our young adults for their “Thanksgiving” video, and Sean Uy for putting these video clips together. Praise the Lord for giving us different gifts and passion.
  4. This Thanksgiving season, we invite everyone to participate in FEC’s annual Thanksgiving Offering as our grateful response to the Lord’s mercy and keeping during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s TG offering will be distributed as follows:
