CELEBRATION OF HOPE | 17-19 MAY 2019 | NATIONAL STADIUM

Celebration of Hope (COH) is jointly organised by the National Council of Churches Singapore (NCCS) and Evangelical Fellowship of Singapore (EFOS). COH is a commemoration of the Billy Graham's Crusade in Singapore some 40 years ago (1978). It is about Christians in Singapore rallying together and reaching out to share Jesus Christ with friends and relatives. It encourages personal evangelism on a mass scale, culminating in Gospel rallies at the National Stadium over three days 17-19 May 2019. For more information and details about the event, please visit the website at https://celebrationofhope.sg/.

In particular, the Singapore Baptist Convention (SBC) has asked that Grace Baptist Church (GBC) partners with them in providing counsellors for 17 & 19 May. The counsellors are to help on the two days in sharing the gospel with those who ask to receive Christ and with some follow-up. Counsellors are required to attend one of the training sessions (conducted over March and April) and be present at COH for 17 & 19 May. If you are interested, please register at https://goo.gl/forms/dhBOrFkvDvDaGKTA3. The details for the training sessions are provided when you register. Also please drop an email to Pastor Ollie at oliverchia@gracebaptistchurch.sg when you sign up to be a counsellor or approach him if you have any questions.

2ND FLOOR UNCLAIMED EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS 

Please be informed that we are doing improvement works to the 2nd floor. For those ministries or individuals who have items at level 2 car park area please clear them by 17 February 2019. All items that are unclaimed by 17/02/2019 will be disposed.
For more information, please contact our MA, Nicholas Ng at the church office.

EXTERNAL EVENT CO-ORDINATORS

We are thankful that God continues to use our new building to bless the wider church through hosting an increasing number of external events. However, this increase has also placed a significant administrative burden on the church office staff. We are appealing for volunteers to serve as event coordinators for external events, to be the main liaison between external users and the church. If you are interested please contact Kok Pui in the church office for more details about the role.
