Greetings from St. Andrew's Youth Fellowship!

We have had an exciting time this month as we celebrated Youth Sunday on the third Sunday of October, and it was the first time since the lockdown that we could all meet and prepare for our special Service. We had a nice time of singing together for the Praise and Worship and look forward to participate more and more in the Live Worship Services as we adjust into the new normal.

We have also had our Weekly Youth Meets over zoom on Saturday evenings, and we are very happy to have our own members leading and sharing from the Word and their testimonies week after week.

We extend a warm invitation to all young people in our church to join us for these Youth Fellowship Meetings.

Report - Women's Fellowship

The Bible Study for the month of October was conducted on Google Meet on the 3rd and the 17th of the month. The message was shared by our very own congregation member Mrs. A.N Indira Devi, and the topics were "Christ- The wisdom from God" and "The Church of Christ".

The thought-provoking message on the 3rd , taught us that wisdom is knowledge of what is true or right and the ability to think, and it comes from Christ alone. She also spoke about how people work hard to achieve worldly things which are temporary, but Job 28:28 says-And he said to humankind, 'Truly, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.'

The Bible Study conducted on the 17th of October was based on Paul's letter to the Ephesians with specific reference to Chapter 4, where he talks about the need to maintain the unity of the Church with humility, patience and love. The purpose of the present-day Church as the Body and Bride of Christ was also discussed in detail.

The goals of the churches are:

  1. Evangelism based on Romans 10
  2. Discipleship based on Matthew 28: 19-20
  3. Social Concerns based on James 1:27
  4. To produced mature, stable and holy Christians based on Ephesians 4: 14-15
  5. To be Good Samaritans based on Luke 10
  6. To attain Holiness based on Ephesians 5:26-27

It was all summarised as arising out of something more important, and the only purpose of our existence is for the glory of God as it can be seen in Jeremiah 13:11 and Isaiah 43:21, where God refers to His chosen people as 'The people whom I have formed for myself so that they may declare my praise.', which is again told in 1 Peter 2:9.

The meeting was well attended online by the members of the Women's Fellowship and the Congregation.

The Women's Fellowship would like to place on record our thanks to Mrs. A. N. Indira Devi for sharing the Word to God and to the members for their active participation.
