許明遠牧師 Rev. Ming Yuan Hsu
- 上主日舉行春季會員大會，61名會員出席，會中通過接納各部會2022年事工報告和2023年年度預算，感謝各位會員的參與。The spring congregational meeting was held last Sunday with 61 attendees, and the 2022 ministry reports and 2023 annual budgets were accepted. Thank you for your participation.
- 本主日開始，”讓全世界都知道”系列影集將在主日崇拜之後重新推出，請兄姐留步在大堂觀賞影片，之後一同午餐交誼。Starting from this Sunday, the “That the World May Know” series will be played after the worship service. Brothers and sisters are invited to stay in the lobby to watch the videos and then have lunch together.
- 繼續在大齋節期的當中，鼓勵兄姊用靈修、禁食和默想來體驗主耶穌走上十字架的路程。During Lent, brothers and sisters are encouraged to use the spiritual practices of fasting and meditation to experience the journey of the Lord Jesus on the cross.
- 執事會因應土耳其和敘利亞地震的需要，由急難救助基金捐出兩千元透過美國長老教會來捐助災區的需要。長執會決定鼓勵兄姊來為此奉獻，有感動者請在支票上註明為震災，教會將集中款項共同寄出，希望透過大家小小的力量帶來鼓勵和幫助。In response to the Turkey-Syrian earthquake, the Deacon Council has donated $2,000 from the Emergency Relief Fund through the American Presbyterian Church. The committee has also decided to encourage brothers and sisters to contribute to this cause. If you are so moved, please indicate on the check that your offering is for the earthquake disaster. The church will send the funds together to bring encouragement and financial help through everyone’s contribution, however small.
- 下週日日光節約時間開始，請在禮拜六晚上將時鐘調快一小時。Daylight Saving Time begins next Sunday, please remember to set your clocks forward one hour on Saturday night.
