Welcome, Velkommen, Welkom, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Benvenuto. These are familiar words when we travel. There are several people that we would like to welcome to the Union Church community. First, we welcome Liza Sumagaysay who joins the Union Church staff team and works in the area of administration. Please say hello and find her at the Welcome table each Sunday morning. We also welcome Jessika Dorcas, who just married Hunter Purvis, our youth director, last weekend in the States. Jessika will be teaching at a school in Kowloon Tong.
Union Church has always benefited from hearing speakers from various organisations and this Sunday is no exception. This Sunday we welcome our speaker Dr. David Swarr, President and CEO of the 4.2.20 Foundation. The goal of this organisation is to see the whole Word available in the 4000+ languages still requiring a translation of the Old Testament. This is an exciting work. Dr. David Swarr will be speaking at all the services and we will be taking up a special offering for this ministry.
Finally, we welcome peace in our city. Let’s continue to pray for wisdom and clarity for our leaders
Blessings and may we continue to be a welcoming community, reaching out with the love of Christ,
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Mt 25:35
