ALPHA 18 – Completion & Thanksgiving
Thank God for supplying all our needs throughout Alpha 18. On 14th November 2015 (Sat), we had a Celebration Dinner in church to mark the completion of this course. We thank all Charisians for praying along with us, helping and encouraging us in practical ways during these 3 months. We thank God that several course participants learnt more about Christianity. Many made the decision to receive Christ and had experienced the touch of the Holy Spirit.
The next course, Alpha 19, is scheduled from February to May 2016. Please to this webpage or the [Outreach] notice board for the detailed schedule.
SUNDAY FLORAL OFFERING
We wish to acknowledge the frequent donations of Charis members for our Sunday Floral Offerings. These members often use this means of floral offering as an expression of thanksgiving to God in their lives. It has also been used in memory of loved ones, anniversary date etc. Their support and generosity have also greatly added to the ambiance of our weekly Sunday Services.
We have put up a weekly schedule for floral offerings on the [Church Office] notice board for your convenience. Dates for floral offerings may be chosen in advance. Do also remember to include your name, purpose and contact number on this schedule. As a guideline, floral offering should be at least $100. You may drop your cheque payable to “Charis Methodist Church” indicating “Floral Offering” and date of offering at the back of the cheque into the offering bag or come to the Church Office to donate in cash to our Church Office Staff Thor Bee. Your contribution is always much appreciated!
SUNDAY REFRESHMENT OFFERING
If you have enjoyed the refreshment provided on Sundays and would like to contribute to this item as a service to the congregation, or as an act of thanksgiving, celebration of birthday, anniversary, baby first month or for whatever reasons that you are celebratory about, do put your name down on the Sunday Refreshment Offering Form posted on the [Church Office] notice board.
As a guideline, refreshment offering should be at least $100 and in multiples of $50. You may drop your cheque payable to “Charis Methodist Church” indicating “Refreshment Offering” and date of offering at the back of the cheque into the offering bag or come to the Church Office to donate in cash to our Church Office Staff Thor Bee. Your contribution is always much appreciated!
SKILL TRAINING AND CHRISTIAN EDUCATION SUBSIDY
LCEC has approved a subsidy scheme to encourage members to upgrade their skills and Christian knowledge so as to serve God better. Application Form is available from the church office.

VOLUNTEERS FOR EMERGENCIES ON SUNDAYS
