Methodist School of Cambodia needs teachers and books

Aug 2010    

PHNOM PENH – e Methodist School of Cambodia (MSC) needs volunteer teachers as well as books for its library.

In the next academic year 2010-2011, the MSC will have 20 classes, and it needs volunteers to teach Grade 10 and 11 English classes. Retired teachers who have a burden for the education of the future generation of Cambodia are requested to consider teaching at the school – even if they can only do so for three, six or 10 months.

The school has just renovated its library with book shelves donated by Anglo-Chinese School (Primary). It still needs many English books.

Please contact the Methodist Missions Society (MMS) at tel: 6478-4818 or email mms@methodist.org.sg if you can volunteer to be English teachers for at least three months, or can donate used story books in good condition to the library.

Methodist School of Music presenting Festival of Psalms

THE METHODIST SCHOOL OF MUSIC (MSM) is presenting a Festival of Psalms to be held at Barker Road Methodist Church on Sept 25 at 7.30 pm.

The Festival of Psalms is based on the book Voicing God’s Psalms by Calvin Serveeld: “Serveeld sets the biblical psalms in historical context, highlights the rough and tender tenor of God’s psalms and offers concrete suggestions for helping these psalms come alive in our private and public worship today.”

Said an MSM spokesman: “We believe that we need to revisit the psalms, its richness in form and content.”

In this festival, the MSM hopes to promote the use of psalms as liturgical prayers. The psalms will be presented in various forms, in the ways they can be performed during worship.

The Festival of Psalms will be directed by Jonathan Velasco, a highly sought-after choral conductor, clinician and adjudicator. Velasco regularly holds choral clinics and workshops in Manila, the United States, Germany, France, Sweden, Spain, the Netherlands, Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore.

The choral anthems to be sung at the Festival will include Psalm 90 (by Michael Burkhardt), and Psalms 100 and 130 (by John Rutter).
