MIRI – Youths and young adults from Grace Methodist Church (GMC) recently visited Gereja Methodist Tudan (GMT) to join in fellowship with their youths to foster closer camaraderie and share mutual interests.

GMT, the first indigenous congregation under the Sarawak Chinese Annual Conference (SCAC) has long enjoyed cordial relationship with GMC with the latter playing a major role in its inception as a preaching point in 2004.

Upon arrival, the visitors were warmly welcomed by their indigenous peers in eager anticipation of what was to be a blessed evening.

Also present were the pastor-in-charge of GMC Rev. Lisa Ting, and GMC i-Youth Advisors Andy Chew and Siew You, and Rev. Law Hui Seng.

Singspiration, accompanied by the famous tambourine dancers from GMT was presented by the youths from both churches.

Rev. Ling Biu, in his brief exhortation, invited the youths and the young adults to discern the cultural differences between an English-speaking youth fellowship and a Bahasa Malaysia-speaking one.

“It is important that we know what the differences are so that we are able to understand each other and grow spiritually together,” said the pastor-in-charge of GMT.

Members from the two churches eagerly came forward to share, giving different and interesting perspectives.

“This evening our youths from both churches were able to glorify our mighty God through praise and worship and we also had the opportunity to build our friendship in the love of Jesus,” commented 19-year-old Agnes Anak Berangan from GMT.

Rev. Law Hui Seng was invited to say the closing prayer, followed by light refreshments served.
