What Are You Doing Sunday, Baby?

No, you are not at the wrong blog, and I am not reliving the popular hit song by Tony Orlando and Dawn which I sang at my father-in-law's 90th birthday party last weekend. I am referring to this Sunday, today, which is PBS Sunday. This is a long awaited event which we started planning since last October when we 'booked' the date and the speaker, Rev. Ong Hwai Teik, our Trinity Annual Conference President. The specialness of today is that it is our anniversary Sunday and it is also the LAST Pusat Berdikari Seremban's Sunday. Next year it will be recognized by the church as Persatuan Berdikari Seremban's Sunday. Please remember the difference although the work are the same.

Rev. Ong preached on the topic 'A Church Worthy of the Gospel' from Acts 2:37-47. The church need to grow up, grow together, grow out and grow more. We in the church do not serve as volunteers but as servants. It is a timely reminder on this PBS Sunday to we who give of our time at the centre that we do not volunteer per se but willingly give of what we are good at for the good of the trainees. Even as he ended by saying that a church must not only be good but look good so that outsiders like what we are doing, he reminded us to be members who are united, informed of our calling, spiritual in our thinking and witnessing the Gospel to the world in need of salvation. When this is applied to PBS it bear a parallel call for us to do the same as we do as a church.

The PBS Sunday ended with a breakfast and the cutting of the 10th anniversary cake donated by a bakery. Here are some pictures of the celebration.
