我们团契是为了让很多家庭中有孩子的弟兄姐妹能聚在一起,不仅能查考圣经,而且可以分享如何按照神的心意来教导我们的下一代。我们的孩子在这个年龄段,是塑造他们性格的最佳也是最重要的阶段,希望更多的家庭能来到我们团契,通过彼此学习和鼓励,管理好神赐给我们的产业,一同来事奉我们的神!学习神的话语是我们最重要的事,弟兄姐妹一起借各种机会学习讨论如何自己读经,如何带领查经。大家对周五晚上的查经越来越认真,越来越投入,也越来越喜欢!今年约书亚几乎所有成员都走出团契,参与了多项教会的服侍。具体服侍内容包括主日崇拜(敬拜,招待组,幻灯组,周报组,点心组),建堂事工(筹款,搬家协调,采购),儿童事工(主日学老师和带领),周五查经(敬拜,AWANA)以及国语成人主日学和NECCC等。许多服侍我们都是以团队的形式进行的。通过定期同工聚会,我们已经形成了一个团队,大家一起互相支持,互相鼓励,在服侍中,一同认识神并建立起在主里面真正的友谊。越来越多的家庭都更加明确了神赐下的异象,

约书亚 24:15 至于我和我家,我们必事奉耶和华。

造就组由十几个基督徒和慕道友家庭组成,每个星期五的晚上,组内弟兄姐妹聚在教会一起查经,一起在灵里面彼此分享,互相鼓励。弟兄姐妹们不但寻求在神的话语中得到造就,更强调如何在日常的生活中将神的话活出来。感谢主的恩典和带领,很多组员都愿意在教会的各样事工中与其他弟兄姐妹一起同工,服事神。平日弟兄姐妹之间经常沟通,互相代祷,关怀探访,也在每个主要节假日适当安排一些小组家庭聚会或秋游活动。

歌罗西书1:28 我们传扬他, 是用诸般的智慧劝戒各人, 教导各人, 要把各人在基督里完完全全的引到神面前。

仍是我们造就组的目标。愿神赐给我们更多的智慧和能力, 让我们的根基稳固,主的生命越来越多,有更多的成长。

Young Families (YF) Group meets monthly and each of the families takes a turn to coordinate and lead their meetings. This includes the teaching/discussion portion of each meeting. This approach presents a wide range of topics and perspectives, which makes the meetings wonderful to attend. With our new building I am hopeful that the frequency and intensity of their meetings will increase – as I have seen the depth of fellowship of this group increase over the past year!

Young Professionals (YP) Group continues to meet weekly to study the Bible and pray for one another. Having been together for over a decade, this group has studied every book of the Bible. Wow! This has led to spiritual growth in the best way – lesson by lesson, derived from God’s Word, and applied through relationships to daily life. Dan and Melody Lin, and before them Ray Chang and Erica Huang have led this group which is now waiting on the Lord for His direction for the future.

FISH Group: “FISH” comes from Matthew 4:19 “Come follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” Following up on the Navigators 2:7 discipleship series, a group of our young adults wanted to form their own group to reach people for Christ. They began meeting weekly in individual’s homes to provide a welcome place for visitors. Using the inductive method of Bible study they wrestle with the biblical texts to derive the meaning – taking turns facilitating the study to develop leading skills, then they pray for one another. Eric Teng has been doing most of the coordination to ensure smooth operation and we are convinced the Lord will continue to build this group.

YOUTH Group (YG): The challenges, and the joys of The Hartford Project and a great NECCC led to some very positive signs in our Youth Group (YG). Seven of our young adults have committed to invest time and energy into our YG students. They have joined in taking a leading role in planning and teaching this group. We have been doing the inductive method of Bible study. It was exciting to see the students interacting with the biblical texts. We plan on moving forward with some topical studies in order to help facilitate spiritual growth and prepare our students for college.

Our Middle School students are still under the leadership of Uncle Jerry and Auntie Belle. Sarah Pan has also joined the team. We hope and pray for others to work with this wonderful group too, and in time the Lord will provide!

The Worship teams are further evidence of God’s work among us. The EM has been investing large amounts of time and energy into our worship of the Lord. We have tried to honor the Lord with our faithful service. In our other place, part of our worship was to carry equipment, set up, rehearse, praise, tear down, carry and pack away almost every week for 15 years. But it was all worth it. The challenge for us in the future is to put in the time and effort to worship the Lord the best we can, for His glory. One last great sign of growth in our worship is the increasing intergenerational make up of our praise teams. We hope to see this trend permeate the entire EM!

Women’s Ministry (the Saturday Sisters)
To encourage and equip women to mature in doctrine, character and ministry, and to become Titus 2 women. One of the questions we spent some time on from the previous study addressed the deceitful nature of our hearts. What does a deceitful heart look like? How do we know that we are being deceived? That led into the choice for our current study. Women spend more time encouraging one another and praying for and with one another. That’s a big sign of spiritual growth. I have also been blessed for the sisters who have taken the time to pray over me personally. Another blessing is to see women begin to memorize the truth of scripture to fight back the lies of Satan with the sword of the Spirit.
