Wesley Methodist Church Alor Setar

Written by wmcas   
Christian Education Sunday was held on 11th October, 2009. Tan Thiam Hock as the CE Chairman gave a report to the congregation. Sermon for that night was delivered by Rev Hwa Jen, the TRAC Northern Superintendent. He is also the Pastor of Penang Wesley Methodist Church. He was also Pastor to our church over 20 years ago. The topic of the sermon was Growing In Truth, Growing In Discipleship with Scripture reference from Psalms 119:9-16, 89-96.

CE Vision : Discipleship and Equipping Active Church Members

The Christian Education Committe has formulated a road map to this end. Discipling is done through the following:
  1. Baptism and membership class (started in Jan)
  2. Care Group.
  3. Discipleship through CG and
  4. Pastoral teaching
  5. Prayer – individual and congregational
  6. Pulpit messages – pastor & invited speakers
  7. Seminars on personal holiness
  8. Book studies
  9. Celebration of Hope
  10. Reinforcement – members are encouraged to be involved in a church ministry, read at least a book a year and give a 5-minute testimony.

Rev Hwa Jen also made known that Christian Education Committee in many Methodist churches has been renamed Board of Discipleship and Nurture as CE is always associated with Sunday School, thereby giving the impression that is the scope of CE as such. Hence, the change of name is apt as it gives a broader perspective and includes the discipling of church members from all age groups.
