Peaceboxes and Peacebags. Has our mission been accomplished? (Picture)

A huge thank you to all who packed boxes, bags, wrote encouraging notes and including those who collectively donated almost $6000 to help fund the purchase of items to fill the boxes and bags for our community. These are the people of God and Hong Kong, serving the people of HK by showing true community and loving our neighbours. We packed a total of 187! Thank you!

 

Man Kiu Association Primary School

Seeking urgent donations of old iPads to give to needy kids so that they can participate in online learning.  Some groups have donated WiFi devices, so the iPads do not necessarily need to have slot for sim card, though those with it are most welcome. More info about the school, please visit  http://www.mkaps.edu.hk/it-school/php/webcms/public/mainpage/main.php3?x=1&lang=zh

 

Please drop off the hardware at Church from Tuesday to Friday 10am – 5pm.

 

 

LOVE BOXES – Partnering with Mighty Oaks (Sai Ying Pun)

The day Jesus returns, is the day there will no longer be any poverty and needy folk. But until that day comes, our godly, moral and social responsibility is to continue to be the heart, hands and feet of Jesus.

The need is still great, especially amongst our elderly friends. All you need to do is this.

Please drop off to CCHK anytime between now and Saturday 23rd May 12midday.

Thank you so much and let’s continue to make a difference in our city, box by box and life by life.

 

For more information, please contact Grace (GG) anytime at grace@communitychurch.hk or 59123880

 

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25: 40 

Jesus taught us to love our neighbours as ourselves, and the Outreach ministry serves as a channel to live out that command to those in need. Based on Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 25, the Outreach ministry provides not only financial assistance to selected organisations and charities in HK and disaster stricken areas within Asia and around the world, but also encourages and organises visits and programs for our church community to spend time and share the love of Christ with the beneficiaries of our funding.

 

Even during this time, there is always a way to connect and serve our community especially as the need amongst the community (children, families and elderly) continues to become more deep and desperate. Big or small, time or money, your contribution matters and will make a difference.

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbour, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”— when you already have it with you.
              Proverbs 3:27-28

StandAsia

 Serving persecuted Christians across Asia: Our commitment to those who are persecuted in Asia is unwavering.

 Serving the Elderly: The elderly residing in the home do not have many visitors.  Although the service is conducted in Cantonese, you will have no problem in communicating with them by applying the love languages – physical touch, eye contact, acts of service, etc. Holding their hands, giving a smile, playing music/an instrument, singing and other inclusive activities encourage and give them hope that someone cares about them and God loves them. If you wish to help bring God’s love to the elderly, please join us.

Embrace the Last Journey with Love: SASHCC has 100 beds and provides long term care or geriatric rehabilitation for elders, infirmary support to chronically ill and palliative care to patients with life-limiting illness with an integrated approach in medical service and spiritual ministry. The Centre also provides home care support and life and death education to churches and communities. Through a quality medical, nursing and psychosocial spiritual care team, state of the art care facilities and a tranquil environment, the Centre aims to bring comfort, dignity and peace to the residents facing physical illnesses and even death.

CCHK members are welcomed to volunteer in the following areas:  Group visits: bed-side visits and performances, festival celebration, supporting or leading group activities, individual weekly volunteers: support the Centre’s daily activities (art and music therapies, dim sum lunch, bible study,  weekly chapel service, etc.) and pay visit to residents (Volunteer training sessions will be provided by SASHCC prior to delivery of service), Translation of bimonthly newsletter and workshop materials (Chinese into English)

Serving the disabled and the carers: Since 1965, The Home of Loving Faithfulness has been providing life-long Christian care to over 60 children and adults with special needs in Hong Kong. HK has 520,000 people with physically and mentally restrictive disabilities. They are one of the most disadvantaged and marginalised groups in society. They are routinely denied the most basic human rights, often cut off from education, employment, healthcare and their families. Join us in restoring their dignity and to give our carers some rest as we serve together. 

Serving in Social Justice: To help prisoners, rehabilitated persons, and their families experience a rebuilding of life and reconciliation through proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and manifestation of Christ’s love. The HK Christian Kun Sun Association adopts the 5Rs of the Year of Jubilee mentioned in the Bible as the focus of its prison ministry (Luke 4:18-19): Rest, Release, Recovery, Restoration, Rebuild. We currently need men, Spanish speakers and letter writers.

Serving our ethnic minority children: Whilst some of our community lead stable and happy lives, there are many dysfunctional families and individuals struggling with unemployment, domestic violence, drug and alcohol addiction, homelessness and poor life choices. We offer programmes for children youth and adults which are designed to equip and encourage individuals, strengthen the family and provide new and lasting change in lives. These programs are an important way of expressing our love for people and Jesus’ love for us all. However, we see people’s spiritual needs as paramount and our overarching aim is always to share the gospel and see lives changed by the power of the risen Lord Jesus. In doing this we nurture those who have given their lives to Jesus so that they too may go out and in turn minister to the community around them.
