[ADAM CHURCH]
On August 17, we gave special blessings to all our senior members as we remember their years of faith in the Lord. Each had a rose boutonniere worn on them, and was presented a gift of a custom-made slippers.

The sermon by Preacher Simon Chin on “Honour the old” encouraged us to honour and respect the old as “the silver-haired is a crown of glory” (Proverbs 16:31). After a short break, the respective Religious Education (RE) classes presented their hymn items, starting with the Nursery class. The students sang heartily in praise of the Lord.

The service ended with an introduction of members above the age of seventy, and a photography session. Dinner was then lovingly served to everyone who participated in the Senior Members Day.

After the introduction of senior members and the photography session, all members were delighted to enjoy the sumptuous buffet dinner.
 
[TELOK KURAU CHURCH]
By God’s blessings, the Telok Kurau church celebrated Senior Members’ Day once again. Honouring the elderly is something we should do and is something that will please the Lord.
 
Our Senior Members - The RE students, together with the choir, sang and their voices filled the church hall, praising God and reminding our elders to continue being strong Christian soldiers for God. This was great encouragement not only for the senior members, but for the students and the rest of the congregation listening to it as well.

Our senior members were later ushered by the students to the dining area, where our Jia En Fellowship members had delicacies specially prepared for them.

It was a day of great joy as we see the younger generations taking care of the seniors, many of whom are pioneer workers of our church in Singapore. Everyone was filled with smiles and laughter. It is really a blessing that our senior members remained in the house of God all these many years. Like some of them said, the important thing is not who has more money than the others, but rather being healthy, being able to come to church every Sabbath, and seeing their children and grandchildren growing up in the Lord’s blessing.

Life isn’t a bed of roses, and even if it is, it is full of thorns.
Similarly, in our life of faith, we will meet many temptations and obstacles, but what is key is in overcoming it and to be able to say “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." Looking at our seniors, they have shown us it is possible to keep the faith till the end. Many non-Christians, and Christians, often think keeping the Christian faith is difficult as there are many ‘rules’ to follow. However, the fact is keeping our faith is simple: just trust and obey.

Deacon John Chin has set a good example for us as the Lord’s worker, who trusted and obeyed the Lord for so many years. What motivated him was his desire to repay God’s love, “He gave me life, a healthy body, the only gratitude I can return to Him is to serve Him.”

Indeed, God loves us so much. We should be a good soldier and fight till the end, until we return to our real home, our heavenly Jerusalem.

It was indeed a memorable and enjoyable day as we celebrated our senior members to the praise of His glory!

[亚当路教会]
在8月17日,我们有一个特别的祝福给所有的年长者,因为敬佩他们在主里面长久的信心。每一位年长者佩戴一朵玫瑰胸花,和一双特别定制的室内拖鞋当作礼物。

陈西门传道以“敬老”为题,勉励我们要尊敬年长者,因为“白发是荣耀的冠冕”(箴言十六31)。休息片刻,各班宗教教育的学生呈献他们的诗歌项目,从幼儿班开始。学生们由衷地唱诗赞美神。
在介绍过七十岁以上的年长者和拍照之后,聚会结束。最后所有参与敬老会的同灵们一起享用晚餐。

[三巴旺教会]

感谢神丰盛的祝福,今年三巴旺教会能够在新的聚会点举办敬老会,总共有14位年长者参加这个特别的聚会。首先由陈恩国传道为我们证道勉励,接着是宗教教育和吗哪诗班的献唱。
介绍年长者和拍照之后,所有的同灵喜乐地享受丰富的自助晚餐。

[直落古楼教会]
借着神的恩典直落古楼教会再一次举办了敬老会。尊敬长辈是我们应该做的事,也是神喜悦的事。
 
我们的长辈 - 宗教教育学生和诗班用歌声充满整个会堂,同心合意颂赞神也提醒长青同灵们要继续勇敢地做基督精兵。不单单是长青同灵感受到了勉励,在场的学生和会众也都得到造就。

借着长青同灵由学生陪伴到饭厅,享受加恩团契准备的美味佳肴。

这是喜乐的一天。年轻人服侍这群为教会劳心劳力的长者们。欢歌笑语充满了教会。几十年来,长青同灵依然持守在神的家是不容忽视的恩典。这一天确实是长青同灵喜乐的一天。到了乐天之年,重要的不是谁更富有,而是身体健康、能够来教会守安息和亲眼看着儿孙们在主的恩典中茁壮成长。

人生难得一帆风顺。风风雨雨再所难免。同样的,信仰生活会有试探和锉折,关键是胜过它们后还能够说:“我打过了美好的仗、跑完了当跑的路、守住了所信的道。”长青同灵是持守信仰到底的美好见证。许多人,包括基督徒,常常认为基督教的信仰是难守的,并且有许多教条约束。事实恰恰相反,持守信仰只是简单的信靠和顺服。

陈约翰执事对神的信靠和顺服数十年如一日,是一位忠心仆人的好榜样。回报神的大爱是陈执事的服事动力。陈执事说:“神赐我生命和健康。我惟一能回报神的便是事奉。”

确实,神深爱我们。我们应该立志当基督精兵,争战到底,直到回到我们真正的家-天上的耶路撒冷。
