Ordinary Time Growth Series 


“Take heart dear friend as St. Paul, chief of sinners and one my favourite saints, says, “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own because Christ Jesus has made me his own.” (Philippians 3:12). So too, we are in this race, safe in knowing that we will all reach the finish line someday.” – Joel Zachary Tan

Diving Deeper Into Kingdom Friendships

Do you wonder what kingdom friendships are? In this video series, we interview 4  friends about their experience of kingdom friendship. We see how God shares his love for us through the friendships in our lives, and how He blesses us with companions on our journey of discipleship. As you watch this video, may you recognise God’s blessings in your friendships and may it stir a desire in you to grow and deepen them.

“Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy, for good friends are like the anointing oil that yields the fragrant incense of God’s presence” Proverbs 27:9

This is Part 2 of our 3-part video series on Kingdom Friendships. Stay tuned to our Youtube Channel for more!

YOU WILL SEE GREATER THINGS

Empower is a discipleship and leadership retreat for Polytechnic, Private Diploma and ITE students. We share the experiences of our participants with you here:

“I am going to start making the conscious effort to integrate God in my life by my actions, and acknowledging my brokenness. In order to be whole, I need to allow Jesus into my life fully. I realise now that God is the only one who can give me fullness of life. This is just the beginning, and every journey begins with one step. I am going to continue on this journey no matter how many times I may fall because I know that God will be with me every step of the way. Will you allow Him to walk with you in your journey as well?”  
– Johann Mikhail Hervas, Nanyang Polytechnic

UPCOMING

WORKING ADULTS, TREASURE AWAITS!

“Coming to the Treasure retreat was hard for me, I was unwilling and tried many ways to give myself excuses even though my heart prompted me to sign up. But I’m glad I came as Jesus had it planned out for me. God gently guided me in this retreat, starting with allowing me to see that I had been wandering too far from Him. In an image shared with me in prayer, I was merely walking around in circles in front of the door and God was waiting for me to open it. Subsequently, through prayer ministry and confession, God helped me to take that decisive step towards Him. He showed me how He delights in me, and moved my heart to fix my eyes on Heavenly things as well as to claim my unique identity in Him. I step out of the retreat as a disciple, renewed and sent by the Lord.” (Amanda Goh, 27, Treasure participant)

 Will you allow Jesus to show you what He has in store for you? Take the first step and sign up for the Treasure#12 Retreat today! Treasure#12 is an encounter retreat for young working adults between the ages 21 and 35, held online from 5 Nov (Thu), 8pm – 8 Nov (Sun), 6pm.
