WS1 (9am) & WS2 (11.15am): Money Matters [Ecclesiastes 5:10-20] by Rev Samuel Lee

Congregational Get Together – 29th October 2016
Combined WS1/WS2/MW Congregation-Get-Together @ Hort Park/Telok Blangah Hill Park/SAFRA Mt Faber on 29 October 2016
Get together for a morning of fellowship, fun and food on Saturday, 29 Oct (Deepavali public holiday) at Hort Park/Telok Blangah Hill Park/SAFRA Mt Faber.

This year’s Congregation Get Together will be a very special one. It will be a combined WS1/WS2/MW activity where you will have the opportunity to get a bit of exercise, explore the beautiful grounds/sights and practise your investigative and photographic skills. You will fellowship together in “mixed” teams with our brothers and sisters from all 3 services.

The event starts at 8am at SAFRA Mt. Faber, where you will be organised into “mixed” teams. A bus will then bring you to the Hort Park where the “race and hunt” begins. This will bring you to the Floral Walk, Alexandra Arch, Forest Walk, the Forest of Giants, and (optional) Henderson Waves. The “hunt” will bring you way back (on foot!) to SAFRA Mt. Faber where fellowship, fun and food awaits. The event will end by 12pm.

There will be a less strenuous parallel activity centred around the Hort Park (after which, a bus will bring you back to SAFRA Mt. Faber to re-join the other teams). Special qualification requirements apply!
This is a time for celebration for all…and we will pray and trust God that he will make the day haze-free and rain-free.

Registrations will commence from Today, 9 October 2016. Details will be provided at the registration booths.
