Building Project Update


Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! The building is finally completed! We finally obtained the Occupancy Permit on May 25, 2010 at 9:30am. With the permit in hand, we have already started the “move”. Our tentative move-in schedule is to use the new classrooms upstairs beginning the first week of June for fellowships on Friday and Sunday school on Sunday. We will wait until the second week of July to have an in-house celebration and Ordination of Pastor Peter (pending on the approval of the church in June’s Business meeting). We will wait to have the Church Dedication on October 3. At which time, we will also celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Hope you will join us for this special occasion. May the Lord be glorified throughout all these events.




Michael and CandIce are getting married on June 5. They are the first couple to use the new Worship Center for wedding! We celebrate with them in their union as husband and wife. May the Lord bless them, not only having a good wedding, but a blessed marriage as well.

Our seminarian intern, Luke Xie graduated from Christian Witness Theological Seminary in May with a Master of Divinity. He is now seeking the Lord’s will for a church to serve. May the Lord use Luke to guide a flock unto Himself.
