This year our missionaries in Asia, Argentina, Australia, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, and Utah have requested support from short-term missions teams. Please see the following link for more details and how to apply. https://go.sfbible.org/stmissions Please invite your friends and family to our Christmas Program “Come and Behold Him” on Saturday, December 17th from 7:30 PM to 9 PM. Please take advantage of this evangelistic opportunity. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Every year at this time we usually take up a love offering for our Pastors and a love offering for our Pastor Emeritus (Pastor Chan) as an expression of appreciation for their ministry to us.This year we will be updating this to take up a “Staff Love Offering” instead of a Pastoral Love offering.

The Staff Love Offering is to express our appreciation of not only our Pastors (Henry, Roger & Ray) but also our Children’s Ministry Director (Theo), Office Manager (Hannah) and Custodian (Tony). The finance committee will determine how the offering will be distributed between the staff. The Pastor Emeritus Offering – we will continue having our annual love offering for Pastor Chan in appreciation of his 30+ years of ministering to us.

You will be able to donate to online or by check/cash as you would with the regular offering. Please be sure to designate on the donation as either “Staff Offering” or “Pastor Emeritus” (No Names please).

You’ll have till January 15th to donate to either love offering. If you have any questions, you can contact Archie. For those of you donating by cash or check, if you would like a set of 52 offering envelopes for 2023, they are available outside the worship hall, near our copier. Please be sure to enter your name next to the corresponding envelope no. on the sheet. 1) Christmas Program (12/17)
