Proposal for Sunday Schedule Change

Gideon Lee

July 21, 2018

We have been discussing among leaders at CBCGL about scheduling change in our Sunday program to better utilize the new building when it is available.  We introduced at the April English ministry business meeting a proposal to pilot test from September to November an 11:15-12:30 worship time for the English service, with the goal of making it a permanent time in the new sanctuary if it works out logistically.  The proposal has the support of the meeting participants.  Since then, different ministry committees have been consulted and it was brought up at the Council meeting.  The responses have generally been supportive and accommodating.  Both the Mandarin and the Cantonese ministry committees are receptive to the suggestion of moving the Chinese worship services to 9:45-11:05.    

When I came up with the idea of pilot test for three months, I designed it so that it will affect the English adults and youths internally.  However, as this idea is deliberated at the Cantonese ministry committee and the Council, an amended proposal is emerging that we could perhaps broaden the pilot test churchwide in Building A to make for a more realistic logistic simulation for what is to come. 

This is roughly what the churchwide pilot test beginning September might entail:

9:45-11:05

        Mandarin service at the 1/F sanctuary.

        Cantonese service at the 2/F sanctuary.

        Youth and Children Sunday school classes in their current classrooms.

        The new English “community fellowship” at 2/F (English) kitchen or 1/F Cantonese Newcomer Room.  Other classes in various 2/F classrooms.

11:15-12:30

        Mandarin Sunday school class in their current 2/F classrooms.

        Cantonese Sunday school class at the 2/F sanctuary.

        Children worship at the 1/F children worship room (“ping-pong room”).

        English/Youth service at the 1/F sanctuary.

The Mandarin and Cantonese plan to hold combined worship on the first Sunday of each month beginning September.  On some Sundays, Children may join the early part of the English/Youth service.

The main advantage of this amended proposal is that it simulates the new schedule more completely.  While every ministry will relocate when the new building is available, this plan already reflects what is to come.  It gives us a lead-time of several months to work out the transition logistics. 

I want to emphasize that this is only a proposal.  Because the schedule affects every ministry, we want to proceed only when we have a consensus across ministries.  In all consensus-building exercises, there are gives and takes.  But to highlight the positives, here are some immediate benefits:

        In the poll done several months ago, the Cantonese congregation expressed preferences for an early service, but only in a sanctuary setting.

        Cantonese and Mandarin are having combined service in the summer.  This pilot could mean Cantonese worship doesn’t have to move to 11:25 in September, only to move back to an earlier slot when the new building is available.

        It gives English ministry to try out ways to make use the expanded seating capacity.  Not only does it mean more immediate opportunity to test run special family-oriented Sundays with children joining, it also enables us to test run ideas of community outreach, joint services with other churches, and hosting of short term local mission teams.  All of these are growth ideas that we have been discussing at the English ministry for some time.

There are foreseeable disadvantages and unintentional consequences with any changes.  But rather than enumerating all the hypothetical downsides here, it should be emphasized that the main purpose of a pilot test is to find them out.  The inputs and comments from everyone are therefore much appreciated.  Please take time to think about these proposals and bring forth constructive suggestions!

6/18/2018 Church Announcements

State of the Church April 29, 2018

“Behold! God is doing a new thing in our church for the community”

 State of the Church Meeting – April 29th, 2018

Dear Church Members,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our church theme this year calls us to behold and to participate in the “new thing” that God is bringing to our church.  Thanks be to God! We believe this is a year of renewal, both spiritually and physically. As we know, all renewal must go through the tearing down of some of the old. The old building has been torn down, and the new building construction project has started in the earnest. At the beginning of the year, the pastoral staff, elders and deacons got together to seek the Lord’s guidance, and laid out objectives and plans for various church ministries, which we wish to share with you.

We invite you to attend our annual State of the Church meeting to be held on Sunday, April 29th , 1:30 ~ 3:30pm in the first floor sanctuary. We will introduce new members, review the vision, and update you with the current state of the church. We will review objectives and present reports from each ministry, as well as updates from Building Committee.  We plan to hold a Q&A session 3:00 ~ 3:30 PM following the presentation.

Let us pray together for the church, may the Lord bring the revival and renewal of our church, so we may be agents of transformation in our community. We look forward to seeing you at the State of the Church meeting, and hearing your feedback as we work together in serving and glorifying our Lord.

Serving together with you in one heart,

The CBCGL Council

Prayer Walk for Construction Launch

Dear brothers and sisters,

To celebrate the launch of the new building construction, we plan to hold a mini prayer walk this coming Sunday (2/25/2018) from 12:30 to 12:50pm.  We will divide up into four teams.  Mandarin, English/Youth/Children, and Cantonese teams will gather at the courtyard to pray. The Elderly team will pray at the 1/F sanctuary.  The logistics of the prayer walk can be found here.  Do not forget raincoat and umbrella!
