PPTMC turns 90

Sep 2017    

Pasir Panjang Tamil Methodist Church (PPTMC) celebrated a new milestone – our 90th anniversary – on 11 June 2017 with a joyous thanksgiving service. An anniversary dinner was held on 22 July 2017 at SAFRA Mount Faber with Ms Indranee Rajah, Senior Minister of State for Law and Finance as Guest of Honour.

PPTMC was founded in 1927 for the purpose of worshipping God. Our forefathers have left a rich heritage that anchored us to be a disciple-making church today.

In the Old Testament, Sarah gave birth at age 90, God fulfilling His promise in Genesis 15:4. PPTMC can claim a similar promise as we wait in faith and obedience. Our forefathers were ardent followers of the early church traditions which they passed down to us.

For 90 years, we have weathered the storms, and have emerged victorious through trials and troubles. The problems and struggles that we overcame have now become blessings and stepping-stones. God’s grace has been with us in spite of our weaknesses and shortcomings. Our hearts are full of thankfulness to God.

Our church has reached out to the needy and sick in the community, supports SINDA programmes, and has mission endeavours in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Myanmar. Starting four years ago, we conduct outreach ministry in Teck Whye on Sundays from 5.30-6.30 p.m., at the Methodist Church of the Incarnation.

Our desire is for PPTMC to be a lighthouse for the community, reflecting Christ-likeness, so that many will find rest and refuge for their souls.

The Rev Isaac Raju V. –

is Pastor-in-Charge of Pasir Panjang Tamil Methodist Church and Jurong Tamil Methodist Church.
