Part Two of “Your Bethel” Sermon and Historic Commissioning Service

Part Two of “Your Bethel” Sermon and Historic Commissioning Service


Dear CIL Church Family,

I hope this email finds you well. This Sunday, I’ll continue with part two of the sermon series “Your Bethel,” focusing on Jacob’s experience in Genesis 28:10-22. I’m eager to delve deeper into this powerful narrative with you all.

In addition, this service holds special significance for us as a church. Both at 9am and 10:45 am, we will have a historic commissioning service for one of our spiritual sons as we send him to Southeast Asia for mission work. It will be a memorable occasion, and I encourage you to join us in prayer and support for his journey.

I look forward to sharing this meaningful time with you all on Sunday!

Grace and peace,
