Greetings in Christ!

Our new spiritual journey of this year has been launched! I hope and pray that your life and your family would be deeply rooted in God’s love and grace this year. Your church, your people, and your pastor are ready to walk with you. I want to remind you of my office hours and my email address. If you want to have a conversation with me, please feel free to email me or call me. I also encourage you to stop by my office on Tuesdays, if you ever want to talk with me about your life and your spiritual situation.

Pastor’s Office Hours: Every Tuesday, 10:00AM-5:00PM. (Please call me directly if I am out for having a lunch or visitations)
Email Address and phone number:  saidjs@bu.edu  / 857-701-8080

Last Sunday, I came to know about the Australia fires. Numerous animals have been killed and severely injured by this unstoppable disaster. Please pray for the people and animals living in Australia.

As you know, Mark Kingston and Leann Cavicchi will lead youth members and myself to Boston for City Reach 2020! We will head to Boston on Friday, Jan 10 (around 5:45pm). We are going to meet homeless brothers and sisters, providing them dignity cards, socks, clothes, and other items. Thank you for donating items and money for this wonderful missional work.

This week, instead of the sermon, City Reach members will share their testimonies from City Reach. I believe that this will be a great opportunity for us to see how beautiful it is to share what we have with those who are in need. Preparing this Sunday worship service, God reminded me of Matthew 25:34-40.

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)

I hope to see you all this Sunday to have the wonderful worship together!

May God bless your new journey of this year.

In Christ,
Jun

CityReach is an overnight urban outreach program begun in March 1996 for youth (with accompanying adults), young adults, and college students from churches of any denomination. The program gives these young people the opportunity to learn first-hand about homelessness from people who have experienced it. During the 20 hour outreach program, participants join CityReach staff in street ministry and offer hospitality, food and clothing. This is followed by times of sharing and reflection. This is the Church Hill youth group’s 10 th year participating in this mission project on January 10 & 11, 2020. The group can use support by donations of clothing, dignity cards, toiletries, etc. Please CLICK on the link below to see a full list of items needed for the upcoming visit to CityReach.
