11th December 2016
(Third Sunday of Advent)
Advent refers to the coming of Christ.
The church remembers the first Advent as described in Luke 1, culminating in Jesus’ birth, and we look for His coming in glory, Jesus’ second coming, with great anticipation. In the church calendar, we set aside the 4 Sundays before Christmas to focus on this coming of Jesus. The Advent Wreath contains 5 candles (1 candle lit on each Sunday and the 5th on Christmas Day) and is placed on the Communion table in the Sanctuary as a visual reminder to us that the Lord will surely come again. He came the first time to save us from our sins and He will come again to judge the living and the dead. He will take charge as the King of kings and His kingdom will have no end.

SJSM has been serving the Dover community since our earliest days. To widen our service further, SJSM is developing an integrated multi‐generation facility within our existing premises at 30 Dover Avenue. This new facility will serve both the young and the elderly, and provide opportunities for inter‐generational bonding between them. We are calling this facility Project Spring‐Winter (PSW). PSW will comprise two major components – Spring, a childcare facility and services; and Winter, a nursing home facility and eldercare services.
