“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.” Philippines 4:4
This past week has been full and fabulous. There were so many areas of participation and engagement and there were so many reasons to rejoice! Rejoicing in the ICC banquet; the One- Hearing the Word Campaign Thanksgiving Service; the Joint Leaders and Staff Day Retreat; the 20 Stephen’s Ministers who were commissioned; the HK Christian Council radio appreciation seminar; the new “Re-Charge Your Family” series; the 125 toiletries kits delivered to Impact HK and Hope for the City and I know many people had various prayers answered. What a week!
BUT the celebration continues!
THIS SUNDAY, we celebrate “Church is… ONE.”
Join us at Tang Shiu Kin Secondary School, 9 Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. (10 mins walk from Union Church)
Service starts at 10:30am, with Sunday School, Gospel Choir, followed by a BBQ. Feel free to bring a salad or dessert. See the map below for details.
Anto, our Young Adults Director is also rejoicing:
Union Church family, it is with great excitement that Jess and I share the news of our move to England this summer. The Lord has opened an unexpected door for me in Godalming, a town in Surrey, southwest of London. I will be servin g as Youth Minister at Busbridge & Hambledon Church (Church of England). This move will allow us to be closer to families and for Jess to continue her career in London. As we begin to reflect on this season spent in Hong Kong, Jess and I are full of gratitude for all those who have walked with us, spoken into our lives and allowed us to be part of theirs. Hong Kong is a special place full of some special people who will remain close to our hearts. Thank you Union Church for these 3 years of ministry.
On behalf of Union Church, we would like to say thank-you to Anto and Jess. Your ministries have been a blessing to us in so many ways. We can rejoice that you are going where the Lord is leading, however, we are sad to see you go and you will be missed. A farewell will be held on Sunday June 16th and their last Sunday is July 21st.
