AN INTER-GENERATIONAL CHURCH
EXPANDING HIS KINGDOM
Pastoral Letter (Updated 23 June 2020)
Praise the Lord that SSMC is be able to resume our in-person
Sunday Celebration service at our sanctuary from 5 July 2020.
We are thankful that the government is allowing churches to reopen for 'in-person' worship with the condition of observing to the Authorities' Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). Failure to comply with these conditions may result in punitive action by the authorities against the Church.
Registration required for attending in-person Sunday Celebration
A key condition imposed is a restricted seating capacity which currently allows only 1/3 of our total capacity. As such, we need the cooperation of everyone to observe all the conditions to facilitate this transitional process of physically attending. Those who wish to attend the in-person Sunday Celebration will be required to register. Please read the important information below before you register. The link for the registration form is found at the end of this bulletin.
On-Going On-line Meetings / Services

As many people are returning to work and other regular activities, Tuesday Night e-prayer meetings will return to our previous 8.30 pm slot.
3. Discipleship Groups e-Meetings
It is good that some DGs continue to meet via Zoom, Skype, Hangout Meeting. While some DGs have yet to start explore e-meetings formats, I cannot emphasize enough the need to explore and embrace this new normal of e-meetings. There will be a steep learning curve which is to be expected but it’s doable and workable. If help and advise is needed, please feel free to contact Lam, Shih Shu or myself.
