Dear Church Family,
Our Sunday Celebration today can be accessed on YouTube video stream at around 10:45 AM (12:45 AM Asia).
Last week, we introduced “Shalom 2021” – which encompasses our roadmap for navigating through the kairos time of 2021. Feel free to visit the Shalom 2021 page at our church website to see the roadmap framework, delivered messages, and tentative topics.
Scripture uses “shalom” to encompass many of what the world is seeking today – peace, safety, contentment, prosperity, health, completeness, friendship, and even covenant with God. Jesus has prepared the world in 2020 so that His church can begin to take on the authority of shalom in 2021. This is why we are spending time and effort to prepare for kingdom encounters that will lead us to such authority.
So we went through two Sundays of extreme weather, and are heading into a 3rd Sunday where it’s forecasted to be -5 F when we leave the house for WPC – the place we have been called to lead the corporate worship, whether anyone joins or not. Even through the extremities, we have seen much beauty and sense the tender presence of the Groom over us. This was illustrated 2 Sundays ago during the snow storm, when Brother John Lee made a fly-over of WPC with his drone (see it here). It’s like God’s breath upon us, just as He breathed life and destiny into Adam.
If you plan to join us, please note that the sanctuary may be cooler than usual, maybe around mid 50 degrees. Do not give up! Let’s stand together as a body to bring God our best possible worship with our offerings of sacrifice – and astound Him with our faith.

Experience Emmanuel & Happy New Year!
