The conference room was decorated with many creative touches, such as …. the communion table, which adorned fresh flowers and candles, carefully selected and arranged to celebrate the completeness of our Lord’s work on our behalf.
The lighting displays were designed to create a strory of the Calvary and the Empty Tomb… It was precious to see new believers involved in serving communion….one brother serving another.
After the service, The River Family brought together a feast of drinks, fruits and snacks – so much so that there were lots of left overs for the Resurrection Sunday Celebrations!
Under the starry night, everyone mingled and had no interest in going home! The atmosphere was warm, joyful and inviting. This is what Full Life is about!
Then came the Resurrecton Easter Sunday – He Is Risen! Again, a packed house filled the room with joy and celebration! Ps Erik brought a message of hope, a visiting team from Centro, Ipswich Australia greeted with a song and a message of encouragement from 1Thess 3.
Our Easter Sunday was a day of particular celebration because one young man was baptised in water as his public declaration to follow the Lord and because a young lady, whom The River has known since her early kids club days – literally ran back to the Father’s arms like the prodigal son did in the story found in the gospels.
Our River Easter Sunday menu consisted of a delicious noodle soup, Thai-style club sandwiches, water melon and dried sugar-chili tamarind fruit. In addition, we had lots of snacks from the Good Friday feast! As an Eater treat, everyone received a foil-wrapped boiled egg – Thai style!
