As the weather is getting warmer, I am grateful to see more and more brothers and sisters coming back to attend Sunday services in-person. In the past, we used to have Cantonese morning service to accommodate the needs of our brothers and sisters that need to work on Sunday.  However, because of the pandemic situation, the morning service was suspended for over two years.  As the pandemic situation has stabilized, we have decided to resume this service (starts at 8am) effective May 29, 2022.  We encourage brothers and sisters on the Cantonese side to join the morning Sunday service and attend the Cantonese Sunday School classes afterwards.  We also strongly encourage these members to step out and join us to serve the morning service ministry.  

            Praise the Lord! Three Mandarin brothers and sisters have completed, or are receiving their seminary theological training, and are willing to devote themselves to serve God full-time.  One of them is Lily Cai, she completed her theological training last year, and has been serving as our half-time Mandarin Assistant Pastor ever since.  Eric Li just completed his studies, and his graduation ceremony will be this Saturday at BAC.  Eric will be served as our half-time Mandarin Assistant Pastor, effective June 1.  Jack Cai is receiving theological training at the moment, and will finish his studies in two years.  We are grateful that God has called these three Mandarin brothers and sisters as His faithful servants!  May all of them be used and blessed by God abundantly!  This is indeed a blessing to BAC.    

            Moreover, the annual BAC Teens Camp had also been suspended the last two years because of the pandemic, but this year, the camp will be returning in September.  Mason Cheng, our half-time seminarian intern, has been helping out in the youth ministry over the past year. Starting from May to the end of August, he will be serving full-time in the youth ministry, and in the organizing and planning of Teens Camp.  He will be returning to Ambrose College in Calgary in September for his remaining two years of theological study.  We need a lot of brothers and sisters to step up and serve in both the children and youth ministry. May God stir up our hearts to serve our next generations.      

             As a Christian, to be able to serve God is an opportunity we should cherish and enjoy, because what the abundant life of a Christian means is a life to serve God.  And when we are called for full time ministry, that will be an even greater blessing. May God call more brothers and sisters to step up and serve, be equipped with theological training, and be used by God to expand His Kingdom!

             近日天氣開始回暖,雖然雨水仍然降下,但感謝神,每週參加實體崇拜的弟兄姊妹漸漸增加。由於過去粵語堂有一些弟兄姊妹,因工作關係,是需要參加早堂崇拜的。但兩年多前因疫情嚴峻,不得不暫時取消了早堂崇拜(早上八時開始)。現今疫情較為穩定,教會決定於五月二十九日,恢復早堂崇拜。鼓勵弟兄姊妹嘗試參加早堂崇拜,崇拜後便可以參加主日學。同時亦鼓勵弟兄姊妹加入早堂的事奉行列,讓主使用。

             感謝神,國語部三位弟兄姊妹蒙主呼召,全時間奉獻,而且更在神學院接受神學訓練。當中蔡李麗姊妹已於去年畢業,畢業後便在國語堂任職為半時間傳道同工。李國良弟兄亦剛剛神學畢業,畢業禮於本週六在本會舉行。李國良弟兄於六月一日開始,受聘為國語部半時間傳道同工。而正接受神學裝備的蔡文傑弟兄,亦將於兩年後完成神學課程。我們感謝神在國語堂呼召這三位忠心愛主的弟兄姊妹,成為神大大使用的僕人,一生事主。這實在是本宣家的福氣。

            另外,青少年事工因疫情關係,已經兩年未有舉行青少年夏令營。而今年九月,將恢復他們都期待著的夏令營。英語部的神學生鄭文舜弟兄, 過去一年,半時間的幫助青少年事工。而已於五月開始到八月底,全時間的協助青少年事工,同時全力幫助籌備青少年夏令營。鄭文舜弟兄將於九月返回Calgary Ambrose神學院,完成還有兩年的神學課程。求主祝福及使用他在這個暑期,協助青少年事工的發展。青少年事工與及兒童事工,都需要很多弟兄姊妹參予事奉,求主興起及預備足夠的事奉人員,同心建立我們寶貴的下一代。

          事奉主是每一位信徒都當珍惜及嚮往的,因為基督徒的豐盛人生,就是事奉主的人生。而蒙召一生全時間作傳道的,更是恩上加恩。求主在本宣家呼召及興起更多全時間事奉的弟兄姊妹,接受神學訓練,裝備成為天國精兵,一生被主使用。
