On 15 Aug 2018, about 240 seniors from TRAC churches across Singapore gathered at the recently-refurbished Faith Methodist Church (Faith) for the inaugural weekday worship service.

At 2.30 p.m., shofar horns sounded through the Worship Hall, and the Rev Irene Thung, TRAC’s Seniors Ministry Director, began the service with a call to prayer. The Rev Thung then introduced Faith’s Pastor-in-Charge, the Rev Raymond Fong, who warmly welcomed everyone.

The GYM Voices choir, now into its 20th year, presented “The Way That He Loves” and “Love Lifted Me”.

TRAC President, the Rev Dr Gordon Wong, delivered a stirring message of God’s great love. Speaking from Romans 5:6–8, he reminding the congregation that Jesus Christ loves us enough to die on the cross for our sins. He sang, “How Much Do You Think You Are Worth?, accompanying himself on his guitar.

The service closed with some seniors responding to the word of knowledge released during the pastoral prayer, and the altar prayer ministers prayed for them.

After the service, there was time for fellowship and food. William Lim, 81, who worships at Pentecost MC, shared: “These weekday services appeal to seniors and retirees like ourselves. We can catch up with fellow worshippers from the various districts.”

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:6–8, NIV)

Besides its regular Sunday services, Faith MC hosts two weekday services once per month under the auspices of TRAC Seniors Ministry:

• Tuesday Prayer service: 23 Oct / 27 Nov, 2.30 to 4 p.m.

• Wednesday Worship service: 31 Oct / 14 Nov 2018, 2.30 to 4 p.m.

Christmas Carolling Service, “What My True Love Gave To Me”: 12 Dec 2018 (Wednesday), 2.30 to 4 p.m.

All are welcome.
