Shalom!

 

Cancellation of National Lutheran Conference (NLC)  4.0 , 29- 31/8/2020

 

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

 

Regarding the above. It is about four months between now and the event, and today, the Covid-19 pandemic has yet to show a sign of great improvement. The venue of our NLC had been ceased from operation since the MCO announced by the government and may not be even available till end of 2020. As advised by the government, we are not encouraged to organize mass gatherings this year.

 

This has become more difficult for the preparation of the NLC. Additionally, with the bad economy affected by this pandemic, the participation of the NLC will also be affected too. In view of all the reasons stated, with careful considerations, the NLC Working Committee has proposed to cancel the NLC to the LCM EXCO for consideration. After deliberation and with heavy heart, the EXCO had finally approved to cancel the 4th NLC 2020 for the common good of all.

 

Lastly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the pastors, leaders, brothers and sisters for your involvement, preparation, assistance, prayers, and support in this regards. May the Lord bless and preserve us as we go through this pandemic, as we believe our Lord is Emmanuel, the Lord who is always with us.

 

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”(Jeremiah 29: 11, ESV)

 

Emmanuel.

取消2020年全国信义会退修营 (NLC) 29-31/8/2020

 

谨代表NLC筹委会通知各堂会,经获EXCO委员会批准下,决定取消2020年全国信义会退修营。其原因是营会的时间距离目前只有短短四个月,但是新冠肺炎的疫情从爆发至今尚未好转,再加上政府不鼓励我们在今年有任何大型聚会。

 

此外,疫情对于退修营的筹备工作造成了很大的困难和阻碍,并且影响各国经济更是在所难免。这也间接影响参与的人数。基于以上种种的因素,本委会经过慎重地一致决定取消2020年的全国信义会退修营,而下次的营会另行通知。

 

最后,本人借此机会要感谢所有曾参与全国信义会退修营筹备工作的弟兄姐妹所付出的劳苦、各教会牧者领袖的支持,以及弟兄姐妹的代祷。愿神赐福和保守我们渡过这次的疫情,我们深信我们的神,是以马内利,与我们同在的神。

 

“神说,我知道我向你们所怀的意念是赐平安的意念,不是降灾祸的意念,要叫你们末后有指望。”—《耶利米书二十九11》

 

 

以马内利
