We're in the Finals!

The preliminary rounds for the Inter-Denomination Games have concluded and our volleyball team has made it to the finals! On a day where our representing teams for the table-tennis, badminton and basketball were defeated, the volleyball team provided that burst of sunshine amidst the gloom at the PJEFC Sports Centre.

The play-off for the gold medal will be held next Saturday, 6th February 2009 at 11.00 am. All members are encouraged to attend and cheer on the team. After all, it isn't everyday that we get the chance to win a medal. J  The official results will also be announced on this day.

Over at the Tropicana Golf & Country Club, the bowling team narrowly missed out on a medal place, losing by one point in the preliminary rounds, thus only managing to make the play-off for the 3rd place. Then, a couple of players buckled under the pressure and lack of practice and we had to settle for 4th place instead.

However, this competition has been a great time of fellowship and exposure for some of our younger members. If this event does become an annual event, you can be sure that we'd be better prepared for it. A round of applause for the members, Lewis in particular, who have contributed their time and energy to make this event a success.

Not forgetting too the golfers who will take to the greens this Wednesday, 3rd February 2009 at the Tropicana Golf & Country Club. Our best wishes to our members who have been selected to represent the Combined Gospel Hall group.

Pictures of this event will be posted later so come back and visit soon!

Home Calling - Daniel Andre

Brother Daniel Andre was called home to be with the Lord early this morning, 21 Jan 2009. He was 79. Uncle Daniel, as he is fondly known among the members, loved to sing and he had a beautiful voice which he'd put to use at many of our services or gatherings. He will be missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with sister Anna and the family at this time.

The wake services will be held at 8.30 pm tonight, 21 Jan 2009 and tomorrow night, 22 Jan 2009 at the Modern Casket funeral parlour at Jalan 229, Section 51A, 46100 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. (Location map)

The funeral service will be held at the same venue on Saturday, 23 Jan 2009, at 2pm.

Christmas service 2009

This year's Christmas service had performances galore! First up, the Youth performed a hand mime to the song We are the reason, which was conducted by Chon Len.

This was followed by a special performance by Oi Kha (flute), Kristin (violin), Joycelyn (guitar) and Ian (piano), who presented 3 songs, O Holy Night, Calypso Carol and Deck the Halls. Alas, we only have the video for the first song.

Last but not least, we had the drama team presenting The First Christmas. Due to the length of the show, we are not able to post it here. If you wish to watch a re-run, please email us your request and we will loan you the DVD.

And don't forget to check out the photos posted on the sidebar! Our thanks to Mrs Lim and Salina for the videos and photos.

*Administrator's note: We had inadvertently left out Ian's name from the special Youth Musical performance earlier; he played the piano. We apologise for the oversight.

Inter-Church Sports Carnival Volleyball

Please note that the Volleyball selection trial has been rescheduled to 15th January 2010, 8 pm at PJEFC Sports Complex (2nd floor).
