Theme: Issues facing Christians today: * Church * Family * Work * Country.
Speaker: Mr Wong Sai Weng, Mr Micheal Lim & Mr Tan Kong Beng
How should the faithful believer navigate through the myriad issues facing Christians today? Finding out what they are from people who are in the thick of the action is a helpful starting point. This year, we are pleased to have three speakers tackle four different aspects of the task ahead. Mr Wong Sai Weng will start us off by reviewing how the brethren assemblies currently work together for the furtherance of the Kingdom before talking about issues facing the family institution today. Mr Micheal Lim will review several of the challenges facing Christians Monday through Friday as they engage with workplace matters. And Mr Tan Kong Beng will finally address the socio-political scenario of our beloved country, highlighting how Christians can indeed be salt and light to the world. Alongside these tough topics, we will also take time to fellowship with each other and play hard as well C with a refreshing hot spring right at the camp site, games and much more.
