Building a Christ-Centered Home

The males lining up!

On 10 February 2019, The People’s Church held her Renewal of Wedding Vows event in conjunction with Valentine’s Day. A total of 9 couples renewed their wedding vows of love in the presence of the Almighty God and witnesses – reminding them of their love and commitment to their spouse.

The renewal of wedding vows serves as a great occasion for the couples to reflect on the ups and downs in their marriage, cherish the love they share and look forward to many more years of journeying life together. We, as a body of Christ, celebrate the love between couples and support them in prayer.

Through the years spent together as a couple, many have realised that a lasting marriage not only acknowledges individual differences but also overcomes difficult times together. As couples reaffirm their love for each other, it sets an example for their children and grandchildren to witness and learn from. Parents and grandparents are children’s role models, and the greatest life and love lessons that one can impart in their children are not written in books or movies but are lived out and demonstrated for them to see. When children witness this heartening moment, they begin to yearn for a strong marriage – one with God as the foundation.

The significance behind this event ties in strongly with Reverend Ronald Yow’s message for the congregation. In his prayer for the couples, he reminded us that God must always be the centrality of a couple’s marriage – where couples yearn not only to grow more in love with each other every day but also to grow more in love and cultivate a personal growing relationship with God on a daily basis.

Rev Yow shared 4 concise points that pulled at our heart strings – Internalisation, Instruction, Intentionality and Integration.

Rev Yow reminded the parents in our congregation that they hold the primary responsibility to instruct their children on the matter of faith as they are the source of their children’s personal and spiritual growth.

Although I have yet to start a family of my own, this point resonated with me as I reflected on my upbringing as a second-generation Christian. My parents have played a huge support in my walk with Christ and have been my role models all these years. My parents would spend time praying together with me for my walk with God, for the examinations that I sit for and for my well-being. With this spiritual support from my parents, I am deeply comforted and I know that this God that I believe in is one who will see me through my trials because He has appeared to be so true in my parents’ lives and spiritual journey.

When parents inculcate a habit of spiritual conversations and involve their children in a sense of spiritual direction, it has a great impact on their children’s lives. Home should be the primary place that faith is to be nurtured and it is a continuous committed relationship with God.

Deuteronomy 6:5-8 (NIV)

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 

Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 

Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 

Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Faith begins at home.

Here’s what you missed at TPC Day 2016!

The People’s Challenge (TPC) Day was a family event filled with fun, laughter and unity as we took a journey down memory lane and reminisced about the old kampong times. Our TPC Day 2016 was held at D’Kranji Farm Resort and members were split into groups. The groups then embarked on the The People’s Challenge where station games awaited them.

Here’s an overview of the stations!

Station 1

D Kranji Bird Nest Museum

We began the activities with a nice stroll at the Swiftlet Garden Museum. It was an educational tour filled with the history of bird’s nest and how the emperors in China admired and treasured bird’s nest as a precious trading commodity in the olden times. This session also showcased how bird’s nest is usually being produced, harvested and processed. We even had some complimentary snacks! Yum.

Station 2

TPC Day Station 2

To encourage unity and team work in our games, we came up with a unique creative idea to encourage teamwork among the participants. Each team nominated a member, who would wait outside the room, whilst the rest work together to draw out an image of the given word.

TPC Day Station 2

Each of the members had to hold a string attached to a marker and maneuver the strings together in order to draw the image. Teamwork, check!

Station 3

TPC Day Station 3a

The last stations saw the groups complete series of activities as a group. First up, the smelling game. Teams were given cups with different mixtures of beverages/liquid and they had to take turns to take a sniff of what’s in the cup. Together, the team had to conclude on which beverage/liquid is in the cup.

Oh dear it must have been awful...

Teams also had to complete miscellaneous challenges such as balancing an orange while doing squats and folding paper planes.

Bingo time

Finally, the highlight of our TPC Day, The People’s Challenge! This was similar to a game of Bingo but done the TPC way and #RunningManStyle.

A sheet of paper was placed on the table with 25 boxes drawn on the piece of mahjong paper. There were 27 items placed in a long table by which each team can choose 25 dishes out of the 27 given.

Team members can place the dishes in the boxes in any order they like. Each team will take turns to call out a dish of their choice. When the team gets one line cleared, they were to shout: AMEN, PRAISE THE LORD! The first team that cleared 2 lines won the game. Simple game but everyone had loads of fun!

Traditional Games Championship

To cap the amazing day, we set up our very own “Mama Shop”. This mini shop had traditional games; from pick-up sticks, to chapteh, to five stones, to card games like old maid, snap and happy family and even the all-time favourite eraser flag game! This really brought us back to our childhood days and gave the children a taste of how our childhood was like.

At 2pm that day, we had our very own Traditional Games Championship where the young and old gathered together to take part and compete against each other. We had country eraser corner, chapteh corner and even the five stones corner. It was amazing to see that the children knew how to play these traditional games!

See below for all our championship winners! More pictures can be found in our Facebook album for TPC day 2016.

Margaret Seaword during Easter Sunday Sermon

Intercessory Prayer with Rev Dr Margaret Seaward

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

Matthew 18:19

Prayer is an essential communication with our Heavenly Father and an act of trusting in Him as we cast our weaknesses at the feet of Jesus. Intercessory prayer reflects the love we see in God’s character, allowing us to think beyond ourselves and instead, to grow and develop in ourselves a compassion for our community.

Intercessory prayer starts with you! Be open to it. Be ready for it. Experience God’s power as Rev Dr Margaret Seaward ministers to us.

The Intercessory Prayer Seminar is a 2 day seminar and will conclude with a Combined Service on Sunday together with The People’s Church 8th Anniversary. Registrants are encouraged to come for all sessions. There will be lunch provided for the Saturday session.
