Our first Thanksgiving Worship on the New Land (13501 Trinity Blvd)

We are planning to have our first worship on this new land maybe in the mid october this year. We will pitch a tent. We encourage people to bring their own folding/lawn chair.
This service will be held at 10:00 or 11:00 am on a Sunday.
This should be neat in an open air worship. Some logistic need to be overcome like Rest rooms, electricity for the mike and keyboard etc.
We will see, we will keep you uptoday as we get closer to the date.
Praise The Lord for His Blessing on Soli-Deo

Today our church prayed a corporate prayer.  Among the things we asked for is guidance.  Now that the church has the land, we need to executed our next steps.  We prayed for a successful fundraising effort to raise funds.  And also, we are asking for the Lord's guidance, in terms of locating an Architect, engineers, and a good trustworthy general contractor for the completion of this church building project.

Indonesian Independence Day Bazaar

Th e 17th of August marked the 68th birthday of the Indonesian nation.    Today, the church is celebrating the event by holding a food bazaar.  As the church service comes to an end, fragrant appetizing aroma invades our nostrils.  The ladies has transformed the eating area into a seller's booth, full of traditional Indonesian food  for sale.
Stacks of  bowls with traditional "soto",  a dish hearty meat broth, with rice noodles, shrimp cake and meatballs, and other dishes abound.

The sellers donated a portion of their sale to support the project.  Some of us choose to donate all of the rofit directly to the project.   Like sister Ester's table. 
She has handmade crafts and traditional gowns for sale.  And all of her profit goes directly to the new church building.
