One of the First Steps of Obedience in the journey of faith is to be baptized.  If you are interested in making this commitment, or would like to know more about baptism, please contact Rev. Fred Tham or any of our Deacons or Elders.

Thank you to all those who participated in our MGC Mercy and Justice Concerns  Sunday  last Sunday.  The English Congregation focused on the “International Justice Mission”; our Mandarin Congregation supported the “Love Foundation” ministry to “Left Behind Children” in China; and our Cantonese Congregation started collecting non-perishable food items for the  “Daily Bread Food Bank”.  There is still time to contribute and participate!  We encourage people from all three of our congregations to become “Freedom Partners” by contributing monthly to the International Justice Mission (any amount is appreciated); donate to the “Love Foundation” and bring in food for the Food Bank.  Thank you for your prayers and show of support!

The English Deacon Board would like to encourage even greater blessings to our congregation and community through offering.  After prayerful consideration, we feel it would enhance our worship services by adding another means of giving.  Therefore, starting this Sunday we will start passing offering bags during the service.  May the Lord bless all of us richly as we give cheerfully and sacrificially!
