What a joyful atmosphere there was at the Cairnhill Carnival 2018! The atmosphere was certainly enlivened by friendly church members welcoming visitors to Cairnhill. Let’s not forget what was on the menu: satay, laksa, putu piring, nasi lemak and more! It was so delicious and satisfying.

 

It was a great delight seeing the children laughing, playing and worshiping God. Indeed, “the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” children with child-like faith (Luke 18: 15-17). 

 

Aside from the fun and games, the highlight was undoubtly the worship session. The song “God I look to you” by Bethel Music, encouraged us to look to God as He give us a vision to see things through His eyes. We can seek help from God because He gives us wisdom to understand the circumstances. These are motivating factors for us to love the Lord who is our strength and shield. The children’s band ushered in God’s presence, making it memorable worship experience. Truly, anyone can serve God, including young children!

 

The scripture of the day was taken from 2 Samuel 9:1-13; Ps William Sam preached about living life together as a family. He emphasised that God’s love can set us free from sin, emotional hurts or any kind of setbacks. God can make things happen in a way where we could never make it happen on our own; He is the God of the impossible. What a timely reminder to rely fully on God’s strength, as we do His work wherever we are! Lastly, nothing goes unnoticed with our God. Our efforts are always appreciated by God even if we do not see results; live not based on our own expectations, but God’s expectations when doing His work. The sermon ended with an invitation for all who sought spiritual refreshment to come back to the Lord.

 

It was a joyous occasion for Cairnhill Methodist as we ended the day with games and food. This event was birthed out of a desire to reach out in love. Many spiritual friendships were fostered. It was definitely a meaningful and fruitful experience for us!

Cairnhill's 20th Anniversary

7 October 2018

The candlelights flickering away on the altar are more than just decor pieces; they signify the reason behind Cairnhill Methodist Church’s existence. It was a special day. Cairnhill was celebrating 20 years of being a light to the nations.

Our guest speaker, Bishop Chong Chin Chung drew us back to the reason behind our mission on ‘being a light to the nations’. Greater than the most exciting of sensations out there, greater than all the treasures the world offers, is knowing Jesus - the one true God.

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. - John 17:3

Our hope for Cairnhill is that this family will continue to shine as light for Jesus so that others would come to know this wonderful God.

The greatest thing in all my life, is knowing you.
