Christmas Celebration


The English Christmas Celebration is on December 21 (Friday), from 7:45 – 9:30 pm, and the Chinese Christmas Celebration is on December 22 (Saturday) from 7:45 – 9:30 pm. This year, both congregations will have variety of performances to bring out the joy of the Season.


Jesus came to save people from the penalty of Sin, and Baptism is an external ordinance that reflects the internal Salvation. Therefore, on December 23 (Sunday) at 3 pm, we will be gathering together at Pastor Larry’s home for a baptismal service. You are welcome to join us to witness this joyous occasion. If Lord’s willing, we will be baptizing four new members into the Body of Christ. As usual, we will serve dinner after the service.


Building Project Update


At the time of writing this newsletter, we still haven’t heard from the City of San Jose about our application to retain the current Multi-purpose building. During the last special Business meeting, the church approved to rent off-site parking. We have contacted the East Bay Unified School District to rent the parking lots at the nearby schools, which are next to each other, and are only one block away from the church. It only costs $30 per hour for both parking lots, which total 100 parking spaces. Let’s continue to pray so that we may be able to keep this building. The Building Committee also selected December 9 (Sunday) to be a day to launch the fund raising program. We will utilize a joint worship on that day to present the needs to the congregation. We extend our invitation to you to join us and learn how you can participate in the building project.

Worthy of Praises
We praise God for giving us an opportunity to glorify Him by ordaining Brother Anselm as a minister of the Gospel on November 26. About 180 people attended the Spirit-filled Ordination Service. By this time, Rev. Siao has already returned to Hong Kong to continue His ministry at Chinese Christian Herald Crusade. May the Lord richly bless him and his ministry.

We want to welcome the following new family members (to be accepted in the fourth quarter’s business meeting on Dec. 17):

Via Baptism: Mike, Mei, Olivia and Valerie
Via Application: Benjamin, Lin and Tze-Kuan
Via Transfer: Ken, Patty, Polly and Steven


We will be having our Annual Christmas Celebrations. On December 22 (Friday), please come and join us for the English Celebration, and on December 23 (Saturday), we will have the Cantonese Celebration. Both celebrations will begin at 7:30pm. Admission is free.

On December 24 (Sunday), we will have our Joint worship to celebrate Christmas at 11:00am. Please come and celebrate with us the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, and at 3:00pm, we will have baptism at Pastor Larry’s home.

Christmas Celebration
We will have a different approach this year to celebrate Christmas. We will have a joint (Cantonese and English congregation) event on December 23 (Friday). We start the evening with having a potluck dinner at 7:00pm. Please bring a dish or two to share with others. After dinner, we will celebrate with singing and close with drawing gifts. You are encouraged to invite your friends to come to join us in this casual event.


We will also have Joint Christmas Worship on Sunday. Pastor Jonathan will lead us in this special celebration. Afterward, at 3pm, we will have a baptismal service at Pastor Larry’s home. You are invited to attend all the events.


New Year is coming!
As this year is coming to an end, what kind of plans do you have for next year? Is there anything you would like to equip yourself so as to be useful to the Master? There is one thing we would like to encourage you to consider, that is to join us as “prayer warriors.” We will roll out a plan to have you sign up to pray for the church. We are hoping that there will be family members of the church praying for God’s kingdom every waking hour of the day.

Welcome to the Family
We would like to extend our warmest welcome to the six new members who will be baptized in the Body of Christ on December 19: Richie, Tony, Jessica, Jennifer, Jaimee, and Flora. Of course, their membership confirmation will be finalized during the Business meeting on December 12.


As usual, we have two Christmas Celebrations this year. The English program will be held on the 17th (Friday) at 7:30pm . There will be a drama entitled “Jason’s Judgment.” The Chinese program will be held on the 18th (Saturday) at 7:30pm . There will also be three short skits with a message from the pastor.


There will be a joint worship on Sunday at 11:00am . This year, we will concentrate more on celebrating the Birth of Christ with praises, with only a short message in between. Please come to celebrate with us.


Building Project Update
On November 17, we received a Conditional Use Permit issued by the City of San Jose at the Public Hearing. We will move forward to the next phase of the project—securing an architect to draw the construction drawings. We have one year from the date of issuance to start construction. Otherwise, we will have to file for extension. We covet your prayers for us to be united in moving forward and to have the resources to build the sanctuary for God’s glory and work.


Alex and Angela gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Ian, on November 7. He weighed over 7 lbs and measured 19 inches. Both mother and child are doing well.

Short-term Missions!
During our Joint worship on December 2nd, we will be sending a team of five from our church to Cambodia for three weeks of Short-term Mission. They will broad on Dec. 16 and will return on Jan. 7. Sam Cheng, Meng Chhun (leader), Alex Chow, Ivan Lee, and Joanne Wu thank God for the opportunity, the church for the support, and the individuals who made financial and prayer commitment. May the Holy Spirit accompany them and give them grace to adapt to the weather and the workload.


We hear from the two sisters, Helen and Susan, who are working in China from time to time. Both of them are doing fine and adjusting to the changing weather. Both of them are saying that it’s getting cold there. Please continue to pray for them.


Mike Ling is returning to the Bay area after a year of Missions in Arkansas. Please pray that he can find a job soon.


We would like to invite you to attend our Christmas celebration. On Dec. 21 (Friday), we will have the English celebration. The Youth and JV group will present a play on Christmas.

Christmas is Approaching. We have two different Christmas Celebrations at church this year: On 22nd (Friday), the English Congregation will present a play entitled "A Broken Trophy" and on 23rd (Saturday), the Chinese Congregation will present a different play entitled "Who?" Both Celebrations will begin at 7:30pm

We will have a Baptismal Service on 24th (Sunday) afternoon at 3pm at Pastor Larry’s home.


Theme for Next Year
The church has adopted a direction for next year. We will be putting our focus on Evangelism–not so much on training believers to be Fishers of Men, but on the "Men" instead. The theme "Cast the Net" is chosen to remind Christians to feed the Gospel to the seekers so that they may be saved through faith.

Sunday School Faire

This year we will have a special Sunday School Faire on August 10, immediately following Chinese worship. There will be BBQ and games. The purpose for this special event is to promote various Sunday school classes to the congregations, and it will be re-enforced through preaching on that day as well. We extend a warm welcome to all of you, so that you may meet all the department members and the teachers. Let’s have a blast!

Building Project Updates

The steel workers are back to work on site. It seems the works are slow in coming, and the Building Project Committee has been working with the General Constructor to push the project forward as much as they can. Hopefully, by the end of August, the roof will be completed.

In the meantime, we are still working to obtain a letter from the school district for submittal to a Conditional Use Permit to retain the current multi-purpose building. For an unknown reason, the person-in-charge hasn’t been able to draft the letter. The Committee is also investigating on a back-up plan for off-site parking. Instead of having over 100 parking spaces, the alternative site only has fifty-six spaces.

Please do continue to pray for the different progresses for the building.
