Father, make us more like Jesus. Help us to bear difficulty, pain, disappointment and sorrows, knowing that in your perfect working and design you can use such bitter experiences to shape our characters and make us more like our Lord. We look with hope for that day when we shall be wholly like Christ, because we shall see him as he is.
From Ignatius of Antioch (c.107)
Please pray with us this week for:
- This Sunday’s worship services, that we will encounter the presence of Christ as we gather to worship Him. This Sunday will be our final sermon from the Kingdom Now series. Pray that the Holy Spirit will empower us to live out this challenging teaching.
- God’s comfort as we grieve the loss of Joyce Lee. She passed away on Sunday at Queen Mary Hospital. Especially pray for Joyce’s husband and her family during this difficult time.
- The wonderful youth volunteers and parents that have stepped in to lead Spectrum in this season. We give thanks to them. Let’s keep praying for God to bring the right Youth Director to Community Church.
Send us your prayer request!
Tables of 8: Thanksgiving Dinner – 27 NOV (SAT)
We have the privilege of celebrating as a community and there is certainly much to give things for in what was a truly difficult year for Hong Kong and the world. Through it all, God has moved and we see his hand in so many places. As we approach a time of thanksgiving then, we are working to invite you all to join us and our hosts in Tables of 8 throughout the city. It will be a dinner where we all get to connect and better know one another. Sign up here.

This school year, let’s learn to do everything with love!
This month, we will be learning about Contentment. There are many things we want in life but we have to learn to be okay with what we have. Contentment teaches us to be glad with what we’ve got.
