Covenant 2

During the last Saturday Night service at FCC, it was my honor and blessing to have witness once again, a play by the Covenant Players. The play was indeed superb! The message was simple and yet clears! We are proud to have Lina, Jimmy and Michelle from Indonesia, Australia and Philippines to perform for us. There were three dramas. With simple props, like Table, chairs and newspapers, they were able to put up a touching heart drama!

Here are some photos from the Drama. Enjoy!

After the service, the faith station gave 2 of our dear friends a Birthday ‘surprise’. Though slightly late, but we celebrated their birthday! Happy birthday Lavinia! And Happy Birthday, CYC (Cool, Young and Charming) . Isn’t that a cool name? Anyways, here are some of the pictures for your eyes to savor~
