This week’s Call to Worship is Revelation 11:15

启 示 录 11:15 – 第 七 位 天 使 吹 號 , 天 上 就 有 大 聲 音 說 : 世 上 的 國 成 了 我 主 和 主 基 督 的 國 ; 他 要 作 王 , 直 到 永 永 遠 遠 。

 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become
    the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
    and he will reign for ever and ever.”

We are pleased to welcome Paul & Magee, and students from China – Kevin, William, Seph and Billy. Larissa also visited us on Friday night. New friends are gifts from God and we are so blessed to worship the Lord together! Hope to see them again!

Praise the Lord for Elder Ed Ng’s message last week on “Be Good and Angry” (Eph. 4:26-32). May we always look to Christ when dealing with strong emotions. Anger is only 1 letter short of Danger … So true!

This week, Rev. Hing Wong 黃鴻興牧師 of LOGOS Evangelical Seminary 正道福音神學院 will preach God’s message. Pray that God will prepare our hearts to receive His Word.

Our kitchen remodeling project will actually begin next week and not this week as previously announced. We are getting new cabinets, a new sink and counter tops. The arrivals of these items will occupy our Mandarin Sunday School classroom. Next Sunday 7/26, the Mandarin class will meet in the sanctuary while the English adults will use any available classroom (TBD).

Are you aware of our Flower Ministry? Praise the Lord for those who bless us with fresh floral arrangements on Sundays. There is a sign-up roster at the lobby doors. (Flowers should be arranged appropriately for display.) Below are photos of sample flowers from earlier this year donated by Sis. Clarice Fang and Pauline Sechang. Lately, the Morlocks (Serina and John) have also graced us with glorious arrangements.

“The beauties in nature are a theme for contemplation. In studying the natural loveliness surrounding us, the mind is carried up through nature to the Author of all that is lovely.” (Testimonies, Vol. III, p. 377.)

從 他 豐 滿 的 恩 典 裡 , 我 們 都 領 受 了 , 而 且 恩 上 加 恩 。(約 翰 福 音 1:16) 

From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another. (John 1:16)

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”

願 耶 和 華 賜 福 給 你 , 保 護 你 。願 耶 和 華 使 他 的 臉 光 照 你 , 賜 恩 給 你 。願 耶 和 華 向 你 仰 臉 , 賜 你 平 安 。
