 “Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:12, NIV

Join us for this important milestone in the calendar of our Methodist schools, as they unite with our churches in MethodistWalk 2017.

This year, the biennial fund-raising walk falls on 25 March 2017, and is brought to you by the Methodist Schools’ Foundation (MSF), together with the 15 Methodist schools in Singapore.

Coming together to ‘Walk Together’ is the unifying message which celebrates the special bond between the Methodist schools and churches in Singapore. In our community, we are thankful that our children spend valuable years living and experiencing the unique spirit and bond offered in the Methodist schools. This ministry through our schools is especially meaningful and important when it touches the lives and hearts of many other young minds.

The fund-raising walk aims to help address some of the financial needs of our schools. This event will go a long way to help fund and continue the work and programmes of the schools.

How to give

In these uncertain times, your generous giving will allow our Methodist schools to continue providing children with enriching programmes. In addition, 100 per cent of the funds raised by each student for the MethodistWalk 2017 goes back to his or her school. As an Institution of a Public Character (IPC), all donations of $100 or more to MSF will get a tax-exemption of 2.5 times of the donation.

If you would like to know more about how to donate, please contact Ms Annie Chng at 6478-4808 or annie.chng@methodist.org.sg.

For this year’s Walk, we are thankful to God for the committed support of four sponsoring churches: Foochow Methodist Church, Holy Covenant Methodist Church, Queenstown Chinese Methodist Church and Toa Payoh Chinese Methodist Church.

How to participate

If you would like to join the Walk personally, do contact your church office for more details or sign up online at tinyurl.com/MethodistWalk2017. Alternatively, if you would like to volunteer as a doctor, photographer or traffic marshal (to help guide our students in the uniformed groups), please also contact Annie.

As always, your prayers are appreciated for the event. We thank God for this great opportunity to connect yet again within the Methodist family, and to lift the needs of our schools and students to His Will. To God be the Glory!
