Celebrate Jubilee @ Commonwealth Crescent
The Year of Jubilee calls for a year of serving and giving back to the community, the blessings that God, the Father, has showered upon us. To mark this, Community Services ran a series of Feed5000 in various housing estates at Bukit Merah, Queenstown, culminating in a big bash – Celebrate Jubilee @ Commonwealth” on 14 November, in partnership with the Buona Vista Commonwealth Crescent RC.
Senior Pastor Daniel Wee graced the event together with Chairman of the Buona Vista Commonwealth Crescent RC and Reverend Eric Chiam, President of 365 Cancer Prevention Society.
With the help from 190 volunteers and staff, 600 Jubilee goodies bags were packed and distributed to residents who turned up for an evening filled with fun games, performances by our children, Teochew and Cantonese opera songs and even a traditional Javanese dance item. Guests were also introduced to the services of “365 Cancer Prevention Society” located in the vicinity.
The spirit of celebration was evident with residents clapping and dancing to the tune of “Labamba”accompanied by Cajon drum beats and later singing our national song, “Home”, together as one voice. The night ended on a sweet note with three residents being picked to take home the top ‘Blessed Prizes’ along with another 200 residents receiving consolation prizes.
It was truly a blessing to play such an instrumental role in spreading the fragrance of Christ in the community.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. [2 Corinthians 2:14-15, NKJV]
