Dear brothers, sisters,

Fresh out of the church camp on the theme Live + Love = Life, we are returning to our daily lives as employees, home makers, parents or students. The January calendar for the pulpit is designed to help encourage us live out what we have learn in the camp and to live our daily lives in fullness.

In February, we would be covering lessons from some of the key passages from the book of Judges. There are two themes in Judges. The first is about how we often fail God and that leads to a cycle of sin, suffering and eventual salvation. The second theme is about how God use ordinary people to do extraordinary deeds. May God use ordinary people like you and me to minister in His name too!

In March, we would be revisiting Sunday corporate worship. It is our prayer that every Sunday we do not just come and sing songs but to fellowship with God –to meet Him, to speak to Him and to receive His word.

May God’s blessing follow you as you prepare yourself each Sunday to hear the word of the Lord.

With God’s Blessings
BC pulpit committee.
