- 「讓全世界都知道」系列影集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。We have continued playing the video series “That the World May Know” after the service. Brothers and sisters are invited to stay in the sanctuary to watch the videos and have lunch together afterwards.

- 2023一年讀經第二季計劃表在招待桌上，請兄姐自行領取。Brothers and sisters are invited to pick up a copy of the 2023 Bible reading second quarter schedule on the lobby table.
- 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 this Lent season, 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, so please indicate on the check if your offering is for the earthquake disaster. GSTPC will send the funds together to bring encouragement and financial help through everyone’s contribution.
- 由於今年氣候異常寒冷，原訂3月19日舉行的野外禮拜將延後到比較溫暖的月份，待日期確定後再通知。Due to the extremely cold weather this year, the outdoor service originally scheduled for March 19 has been postponed; brothers and sisters will be notified after the new date is confirmed.
- 若有願意接受洗禮、堅信禮或轉籍的兄姊，請於三月底前向許牧師或小會書記Naomi長老報名。If there are any brothers or sisters who would like to accept baptism, confirmation, or transfer church membership, please talk to Pastor Hsu or Elder Naomi before the end of March.
