JUNE 28, MIRI – The 4th Miri Boys’ Brigade (BB) held its annual Act of Enrolment and Re-Dedication Service yesterday at its sponsoring church, Grace Methodist (GMC).

Also present were Rev. Lenita Tiong, the pastor-in-charge of GMC, 4th Miri BB Chaplain Tan Kok Chui, and Honorary Captain Frederick Wong.

Enrolment Sunday is an important element in the life of the Boys’ Brigade and of the local Church. It is a time during which the Company and the Church unite in reminding each other of their objectives and obligations. It is also a time for new Boys to formalize their membership and to accept the teaching and guidance of the Company and of the Church. For Boys renewing their membership, it is a time of reflection and affirmation of their promises for the future. Officers and Helpers also re-dedicate themselves to accept the privileges and responsibilities of leadership. The congregation also promise to support the work done by the Company and pray for their Officers and members in keeping their motto and faith.

“Thank God we have new members from SMK Dato Permaisuri Miri who are enrolling today. We also want to thank the school teachers-in-charge for their commitment in sending their Boys to the Parade every Saturday afternoon,” said Captain Roseline Lee in her message. “We are also looking for more helpers in our ministry,” she added.

The solemn Colour March-in and March-out were received and given by Chaplain Tan.

Honorary Captain Wong and the congregation witnessed the Act of Enrolment and Re-Dedication of Officers and Helpers conducted by the Chaplain.

Private William Chen was promoted to Lance Corporal while Lance Corporal Howard Chiu was promoted to Corporal. Warrant Officer Raymond Tie was promoted to Lieutenant.

A performance was presented by the Seniors and Juniors before the service ended.
