|JULY 23rd, 2017 PJ CHURCH OF CHRIST BULLETIN
Brother Chong Fatt will bring forth the sermon on “Quit Going To Church” (Hebrews 10:19-27) from the pulpit this morning. Please continue to invite/bring your friends and loved ones to all of our church services.
SUNDAY ADULTS BIBLE CLASS:
Our minister will continue the Adults class on Ecclesiastes 12 in the church auditorium. Food For Thought: “When we were young, life seems to stretch endlessly before us. It seems that we will never grow old. But as we live through the years, life seems to speed by more rapidly, and at last it seems as if it is very brief. Suddenly we find ourselves looking and feeling old. As someone has said, “About the time our face clears up, our mind begins to go!” That is how brief life seems to be. Ecclesiastes 12 describes the mental faculties in terms of light. The mind, with its powers of reasoning, of memory, and of imagination, begins to fade like the dying rays of a setting sun. The reasoning power of the brain, perhaps the greatest gift that God has given us, begins to lose its skill. Memory fades – that is one of the first marks of old age. This verse describes the failing of memory and of the imagination, like the stars that fade at the approaching dawn. “The clouds return with the rain,” is a reference to the second childhood, the senility that comes on in old age. As a child, life revolves around three simple things: eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom. In the aged that same cycle returns.” Bring your children and loved ones punctually for all our Bible classes geared for all ages.
OUR HONOURED GUESTS:
Our red-carpet welcome our honoured guests: Nikki Tan & her two daughters – Tan Lii Ern & Zhi Ern (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah); Dr. Naveen (Temerloh/Seremban); Mrs. Wong and our regular visitors who were in our midst last Sunday.
STUDY SABBATICAL IN MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE:
Our minister is the recipient of this year’s study grant from the Harding School of Theology in Memphis, Tennessee for the Fall Semester 2017 for research and renewal where he will be away for four months (mid-August to mid-December 2017). While there, he will attend Bible lectureships and promote Asian missions. Please pray for him as he prepares himself for this study sabbatical in Memphis, Tennessee.
Chong Fatt was thankful that his visit at the University Hospital doctors this past Friday was great where his eye pressure was down to 12, the right eye swelling is gone, one of his eye-stitches was removed (3 left) and his eye-drops reduced to 3. He thanks the church members for their fervent prayers. Praise God!
Please pray for: Madam Lee See Mooi (Lay Ling’s mother) – underwent a knee replacement surgery this past Wednesday at the Manipal Hospital in Klang; Brother Norm Jensen – underwent a complicated surgery to fuse 2 disks this past Tuesday and is recuperating in California; PJ brethren who will be attending the Asian Mission Forum in Chiangmai, Thailand this coming week: Chong Fatt, Suzie Yeow, Julia Cheah, Wee Loke, Chew Pek Yee and Betty Tan (Puchong). Continue to pray for: sister Nalini – heart problems; Chan Lay Har (Bedok, Singapore) – recuperating from major stroke; Steven Leong – painful left arm; Yee Pin – Parkinson’s Disease; Wong See Keok, Tan Swee Yoke, Choy Foong’s mother, Bawani’s father, Tan Yoke Ying, Sister Thoo – health concerns. Please inform the church staff if you are away/traveling, or have prayer concerns to be included in our weekly church bulletin.

“There is a plant in the corner of my heart called reverence, and it needs watering at least once a week.” (Oliver Wendell Holmes).
There is probably no more accurate test of one’s Christian devotion than one’s attitude toward, and conduct on, the Lord’s Day.” (Richard Taylor).
“From a moral, social and physical point of view, the observance of Sunday is a duty of absolute consequence.” (William E. Gladstone).
“Our business is not to do something for the church, but to do something with it.” (Joseph Fort Newton).
“We find it easier to go to church than to be the church.”
“Can I be a Christian without joining other Christians in the church? Yes, it is something like: being a soldier without an army, a seaman without a ship, a business man without a business, a tuba player without an orchestra, a football player without a team or a bee without a hive.” (Mrs. William P. Janzen)
