Churches of the FELCMS :
Gereja Protestant di Sabah

 

Gereja Protestant di Sabah atau The Protestant Church in Sabah (PCS) adalah sebuah pelayanan yang dimulakan oleh para missionari Basel Mission sejak tahun 1950an. Masyarakat Momogun terutamanya masa tersebut masih lagi terikat dengan pegangan animisme dan kepercayaan nenek moyang. Beberapa tahun setelah BM berada di tanah utara Borneo akhirnya bangsa momogun Rungus menerima Berita Baik daripada missionari BM. Tertubuhnya PCS pada tahun 1952, 25 December menjadikan PCS mencecah 63 tahun di 2015 ini. Kini bukan hanya Rungus, bahkan Tombonuo, Karo, Kimaragang, Tobilung, Banggi, Sonsogon dan banyak lagi etnik lain yang berada di utara Sabah sebagai keluarga besar PCS.

 

Kini PCS mempunyai 52 000 anggota, 331 buah gereja di seluruh Malaysia, khususnya bahagian utara Sabah. Selama 64 tahun ini pelbagai rintangan dan dugaan telah ditempuhi oleh PCS, jatuh dan kenaikannya semula hanya kera anugerah Tuhan. Selamat menyambut 64 tahun PCS, jangan pernah lupakan penat lelah bapa leluhur kita, para missionari yang memberikan hidup mereka akhirnya membawa bangsa kita di mata dunia. Bersama bangkit dan membina.

Joint FELCMS Mission Consultation

 

The 3rd Joint FELCMS Mission Consultation was held at Luther Centre, PJ, on the 9 & 10 November, 2016.The Consultation brought together, for the first time, a full representation, and the heads of churches, from the Lutheran Church in Malaysia, the Lutheran Church in Singapore, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Malaysia, the Protestant Church of Sabah, and the Basel Christian Church of Malaysia.

 

The Consultation was held with the Mission representatives from the Lutheran Church in Australia, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Bavaria, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The Consultation is an annual event to bring together the mission representatives and the FELCMS churches to share mission goals, challenges and successes, as well as to explore ways of partnering in the ministry.

 

On the first day, the delegates were taken around PJ, KL, Kajang and Semenyih to see some of the ministries of the LCM and the ELCM. They visited Rumah Hope, a home for neglected, abused and abandoned children run by the ELCM; the kindergarten run by the Taman Midah Lutheran Church, Rumah Love & Care Kajang, an old folks’ home run by the LCM, and finally the Kaizen Children’s Home in Semenyih. They also visited the Lutheran Church in Semenyih and were treated to a dinner there.

 

The next day, the work began in earnest with presentations from the LCM EXCO members on some of the ministries of the LCM. The following day, the other FELCMS churches presented highlights of their work as well.

 

The Mission partners participated actively, asking questions and clarifying points raised  by the presenters. But the true value of the event lay in the fellowship, interaction and the sharing between the various FELCMS churches and the mission partners. It was good to learn of each other’s ministries, challenges, and blessings as they carried out their ministry in the vineyard of the Lord. After the close of the Consultation, Bishop Aaron Yap then took the Mission Partners on a tour of the Orang Asli work in the north, where they participated in a baptismal service.
