Our church began humbly with a small congregation that worshipped in a charcoal shop in Bukit Panjang. It has since grown to 1000 members, and the Bukit Panjang Methodist Church (BPMC) family has so much to thank God for.
On 2 June 2019, our six congregations came together for our 82nd Church Anniversary Thanksgiving Service, which was even more special than past thanksgiving services because we also consecrated and dedicated our newly-renovated building.
We had undertaken the massive task of renovating our church building because of our desire to expand God’s kingdom. Firstly, we did it for the children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matt 9:14, NIV). Our kindergarten is now better equipped, more conducive for learning, and MOE–SPARK ready. We pray that the family members of these children will also come to know our Lord.
Secondly, with the completion of the Downtown Line 2, Hillview MRT Station is at our doorstep, bringing with it an increased number of worshippers, whom we want to welcome and accommodate with our renovated building.
Now that our physical structure is ready, we pray for God’s continued blessings so that our BPMC family can continue to move as one to move towards our common goal.
