On 26 and 27 June 2015, LPPC and co-sponsors The Crossing Church and Bethesda Church Bukit Arang invite LPPC couples to a Marriage Enrichment Seminar on biblical foundations for having a warm and emotionally connected marriage. Conducted by veteran counsellors Keith and Sarah Condie, the seminar also considers some important research on what makes marriages work and the warning signs of marriages that are not functioning the way God intended. Couples will learn skills and engage in some activities that will strengthen their marriage — whether the marriage is already strong or whether the couple is struggling with various concerns.
Audio Visual Resource Library
The strictly no-sale and no-fees library has seen the number of titles more than double from 50 to over 100 within the first 10 months. Our most popular genres are Bible characters, children’s and contemporary Christian movies. Other topical titles and biographies are also popular with church members. We hope to include some Mandarin DVD titles and a limited number of book titles.
Men’s Fellowship & Men’s Quarterly
The men take turns to host the monthly meeting at their homes. Discussion covers various areas of men’s life such as work, family, leisure and priority use of time. Interesting topics discussed in 2014 were: Gold, Guilt, Gossip, Glare.
Then there is the Men’s Quarterly to look forward to, once every three months. Members are encouraged to bring their non-churchgoing friends to attend these more general-interest type of events.
In June 2013, we had our inaugural Couples’ Retreat on Bintan Island, for couples to have some rare alone time for each other. The Retreat is a biennial activity, alternating with Church Camp. Look out for the next Couples’ Retreat in December 2015.
