RCAC Update April 1, 2020

A letter from Rev. Dr. Simon Lee

Dear brothers and sisters,

 

Greetings in the name of our Lord! Shalom! God be with you despite the COVID-19 pandemic. May the Lord be with you especially if you are impacted in anyway because of this pandemic.

 

Today is April 1. Some may think immediately it’s April fool’s day! Well, this is not a prank! April 1 signals for us a new milestone in the blessings of God in RCAC, in spite of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Since the second week of the month of March, we have suspended all worships, Sunday school, fellowships and our other activities, that is, within the building of our Church. But the CHURCH goes on even more so without and outside the CHURCH BUILDING. We have found new ways, especially through the use of the internet, to communicate and get together. Our pastors, elders and deacons / deaconesses continue to engage daily with our people through phone calls, emails, WhatsApp and WeChat, Zoom meetings...  Indeed the blessings of God have never ceased to be poured on us all.

 

April is the beginning of new blessings of the Lord. I would like to highlight them for us so as to offer thanksgiving to the Lord, as follows:

1. A new series of preaching for the spring quarter (April-June) begins. The series is entitled ”Jesus calms the storms in our lives” and I will start the series with “Jesus calms a storm” (Mark 4:35-41) this weekend and speak to all five congregations in our Church, including the English, Putonghua, Cantonese and AYAYA. This same theme will be followed by other pastors. All the messages will be available on our websites and ready to be seen at the different service times that we usually worship. The productions of these video clips are the result of many people that work tirelessly behind the scene. Enjoy!

 

2. Online giving begins on April 1. Many of you have been wondering how you can continue to give to the Church. We thank you for this love for Christ and His Church. Indeed, the offering in March was way below the monthly budget of around $130,000.00 mainly because of the lack of ways to give the offering. From April 1, you have the convenience to go online and just click the Online Giving icon on the top right hand corner of our RCAC website, and follow the steps. Indeed the Scriptures tell us that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

 

3. Since our Pastor of Putonghua ministries left us at the end of February, 2019, we have been without a full time pastor for over a year. The transitional pastoral team under the leadership of Rev. Mathew Wong has indeed done a great job in this transition and we have grown both in terms of numbers and spiritual maturity. Now after a year of waiting before the Lord, open recruitment and search, and official process of interviews and licensing by the District, we are delighted to inform you all that Pastor Mark Liu will officially be our Pastor of Putonghua Ministries starting April 1, 2020, having finished his studies at Regent College. Indeed Mark as an intern has already helped us a lot during this difficult time of transition. Mark, welcome to RCAC and we look forward to working as a team together.

 

There are many other things I could share, but let me just highlight these three blessings. May we continue to follow Jesus closely even as we have to keep “physical distancing.” “Physical distancing” is not “social distancing” and nothing can separate us from the love of God.” (Romans 8:38-39)

 

Your servant in Christ,

Rev. Dr. Simon Lee, Senior Pastor

Greetings!

I'm so glad you've landed on our website. I'd love to meet you, and tell you more about our church.

Our church is focused on glorifying God, nurturing our life with Christ, by his very grace and help. By no means are we perfect, but we trust in the ongoing, refining work of God's Spirit, and find our strength and guidance in God's living Word.

"Not perfect" is true of every person and member of our church. But--still--by the good news of Jesus Christ - we rest deeply in the perfect Son, whose life, death and resurrection is the very foundation and hope of our lives, our church and the world. We are imperfect, but our perfect Saviour rescues us from sin and shame. And "in Christ," we really do have a solid hope, a road to healing, and an invitation be a holy people who love God, love one another, and love the world in which we live and work and play.

This good news is awesome.

And so, we welcome you with open arms - no matter what is your reason for looking for a church. Come explore. Come learn. Come hear and sing a new song yourself.

If you'd like to learn more about RCAC, or just want to chat about Christianity or faith, feel free to send me a message. I'd love to connect with you.
