Miri – The 4th Miri Girls’ Brigade celebrated Enrolment Sunday at its sponsoring church Grace Methodist on Sep 30.

An important annual event in the GB calendar, Enrolment Sunday is the day whereby all the Officers and Girls are officially enrolled as members of the Girls’ Brigade.

At 8:30 am sharp, the Colour March-in was proudly witnessed by a standing congregation and parents.

4th Miri GB Chaplain Rev. Lisa Ting received the Colour, followed by the dedication and prayer for the Officers and the Company.

A video clip showing the 10 years of memorable activities was played to update the congregation.

In her opening message, GB Captain Eunice Ho thanked God for His guidance and grace both in good and difficult times during the past ten years.

She also thanked Chaplain Rev. Lisa Ting, the Officers and Helpers for their tireless dedication and support.

“Our aim is to help girls to become followers of Christ Jesus, and through self-control, reverence and a sense of responsibility, to find true enrichment of life.”

“We also welcome invite girls from ages 7 – 18 to join us. Our door is not only open to the members of this church but to any interested girls,” Ho added.

A summary report of the activities carried out for the year was also conveyed to the congregation by the GB Captain.

Following that, the Cadets and Juniors gave an action song performance much to the delight of the congregation.

Guest preacher Rev. James Chin from Kuching Trinity Methodist Church preached an encouraging sermon on “Good News”.

Based on Isaiah 35: 1-10, the good shepherd explained that good news had to be in a certain context to maximize its effect.

“For instance, Good Friday comes before Easter Sunday. Another example is before a church experiences revival, there has to be repentance first,” Rev. Chin said.

“If you ever feel down, just listen or read the Good News,” he summed up.
