Pastoral Letter - 4 March 2021
Stay connected with Pastor Kenneth's latest pastoral letter to the congregation.
Hi KKMC members and friends,
Season of Lent
I wish you God’s grace and peace as we continue in the Season of Lent. This is a season that where we prayerfully examine our walk with God and to prepare us for Holy Week where we remember the loving sacrifice of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the cross, in response to the sinfulness of people.
This culminates on Easter Sunday where we rejoice in the triumph of Jesus over sin, death and the devil, ensuring new life and life eternal to all who will place their trust in Him.
And to help us keep growing in our discipleship, KKMC will be hold the following:
(1) Holy Week Meetings 2021 via ZOOM from 29 to 31 March (8pm to 9pm)
Topic: “BEING IN THE WORLD: Reflections on Holy Week in the light of Covid-19”
Speaker: Lawrence Ko (National Director of Singapore Centre for Global Missions)
Life in the world is full of changes and challenges (especially with the Covid-19 pandemic), with its ups and downs, pain and disappointments as well as joy and hope. Our Lord Jesus Christ embraced history and humanity by being incarnate and becoming human. He also showed us the way to transcend history with its tragedy and trials through faith. Pointing to the future eschatological hope, He showed us the way to actively participate in history and be God’s change agents in the present.
29 March Being in Time: Transitions Ecclesiastes 3: 1-14
30 March Being in Prayer: Transcendence Matthew 5: 3-10
31 March Being in Hope: Transformation 1 Peter 2: 9-12
Register for these Meetings by Mon, 21 March on the Holy Week page.
