Orchard Road Carolling @ Wisma Atria
The Tamil Choir and the English Ukelele Team (in orange) started the Christmas celebration with a Big Bang with Tamil, English and Chinese songs at Wisma Atria along Orchard Road. The Tamil congregation performed a traditional Christmas dance to the immense delight of the street crowd.
This is the first time that LCOR participated in the Orchard Road Christmas Caroling.

Our upcoming Christmas and New Year activities!

Christmas Family Evening
It was so joyful to see our children all grown up and participating in the Christmas Family Evening. Peter and his wife watched radiantly when they saw their granddaughter, Anoushka, lead a song as she strummed on the ukelele.
2D1N Church Camp @ Batam
On the eve of Deepavali, a group of us took a quick break away from our busy schedule for another time of bonding and relationship building at a small 2D1N church camp in Batam.
The night session was sobering with Rev. Dhamo sharing on 1 Tim 3 and 4 – Qualifications for Overseers and Deacons and how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household. In the morning, Brother Peter did a sharing from Matt 26: 36-39 where Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane.
We all enjoyed the boat riding, swimming, and especially the teh tarik which made our day so refreshing and helped to destress us totally.
2nd Mini Retreat @ Botanic Gardens
There is nothing like having a public holiday during mid-week that takes out the stress of a working week!
During Vesak Day holiday, families and friends from our Tamil Service met up at the lush and green Botanic Gardens to spend a wonderful time together – rejoicing and celebrating our love and warm friendships in God’s garden.
1st Mini Retreat @ Changi Seaside
This year, our Tamil Service decided to have a retreat to foster better relationships with all members.
As not everyone was able to attend a whole day event, we decided to split it into two mini retreats. The first was held on 1 May (Labour Day holiday) at Changi and the other was on 29 May (Vesak holiday) at Botanic Gardens.
The retreat was a pleasant mix of items, with prayer and worship, the Word, games and in a more relaxed environment.
We rejoice and celebrate in the feast that commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Falling on the Sunday before Easter Sunday, Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
2018 is a fresh year, full of promises of new beginnings and stronger growth. May this year bring you bountiful tidings, filled with the excitement and peace as you knowingly walk hand-in-hand with the Lord.
Save this Calendar now. Print it out and over the year, mark out the dates where we’d fellowship with the rest of our church family.
Blessings for a year of knowledge, patience and progress in all your endeavors.
Joyfully celebrating Christmas with family and friends in our Lord’s home on 23rd Dec 2017. Warm fellowship and good food amidst the Lord’s presence!

The Art of Worshiping
Spending a public holiday to learn the finer points of worshiping our Lord and Saviour for all He has done for us!

We’re so grateful
Dear church brothers and sisters, and young ones. Thank you for caring enough to come on 1st May, Labour Day (indeed!), to lend your hands in cleaning our heavenly Father’s house.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. – Hebrews 6:10
