What's happening (soon) in SSMC ?
Updates as of 27 March 2020
Pastoral Letter #3
In view of the new announcement on Wednesday extending the Movement Control Order (MCO) till 14th April nationwide, I hope that all of you are making the necessary adjustments to this New Normal of “Working from Home” for the vast majority. Even for those in essential services who, I am sure are going to the work in a different ambience and feelings, even as they nagivate through many Police checkpoints on the roads.
Being responsible and law abiding citizens, let’s abide by the law and be homebound for this season and only venture out when absolutely necessary to purchase food, medication and other absolute necessities. Everyone will be safest staying at home for this period until things improve.
On the Church front ….
1. SSMC Lunch-Time Zoom Devotional Hour, Mondays to Saturdays (new).
Starting, 2nd April, the Church Leadership initiated a daily devotional time open to all tolog in online and join us for a time of worship, short devotional, sharing of prayer needs and intercession.
Topic: SSMC Zoom Lunch-Time Devotional Hour
Time: 12noon to 1pm, Mondays to Saturdays.
2. Weekly Tuesday Night Prayer Meeting
This will continue as e-prayer meeting via Zoom. The Zoom ID invitation will be sent via whatsapp and once you have installed Zoom program/app into your smartphone, iPad, Notebook or PC, clicking the Zoom ID link will allow you to join the e-prayer meeting. For this season as we do not need to worry about traffic jam and the weather, Tuesday Night e-prayer meeting will start at 8pm instead.
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.
3. Sunday Church Celebration e-Service.
We have received feedback and comments regarding last Sunday's service format. This Sunday we will be doing Live Streaming via SSMC Facebook complete with Worship, Intercession, Sermon, Announcement and Benediction.
