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 encourages personal evangelism on a mass scale, culminating in Gospel rallies at the National Stadium over three days 17-19 May 2019. This is an opportunity for us to share the gospel that will impact our friends' eternal hope. For more information and details about the event, please visit the website at https://celebrationofhope.sg/You can invite your friends for this Evangelistic Rally. Postcards that you can use as an invitation will be given out today. Extras are available from the ushers.

In particular, Grace Baptist Church (GBC) will be providing some counsellors for 17 & 19 May. As counsellors, you will be the first contact that people interested in the gospel will approach and you will have the privilege to tell them the gospel. Counsellors are to help on the two days in sharing the gospel with those who ask to receive Christ and 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. There will be a table at level 3 today for those with questions or who wish to sign-up.
