  • 2016 Annual Review

In 2016 we studied the book of Mark for Fall and also started John for Spring semester.  Over the summer we also started a DVD series called the Alpha series. It was focused on reaching non-Christians or very young Christians.  It was a very good tool to get many non-Christians or even some of our members who only go to Sunday service to attend Bible study. We are continuing our study of John’s gospel for the upcoming semester.  

M. Samuel Lim had a successful operation. 

Three arteries of M. Samuel Lim's hearts have been seriously blocked.

The operation is a kind of replacement surgery called 'coronary artery bypass grafting'.

M. Samuel Lim was transferred to different Hospital and had a successful operation on April 20.

This time is very hard for him, little Esther, Daniella and M. Esther Lim.

Please pray for M. Samuel Lim and his family to be strong in Jesus' grace and love.



Ezra 7:10 “For Ezra had devoted himself to the study and observance of the Law of the Lord, and to teaching its decrees and laws in Israel.”

Remains in me

John 15:1-8  Key Verse 15:5 

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” 

Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

2016 Annual Review

The Great Lakes region held our annual Spring Bible conference March 31 – April 2 with the theme “The Gospel of Christ.”  Along with our UBF conference, we again held simultaneous conferences for HBF/JBF, CBF and BBF. We had a total of 76 attendees (55 adults, 21 youth).  The focus of the conference was to meditate the gospel of Jesus and what it means to us. The UBF conference featured three gospel messages from John 3:16 (Abraham Kim), 1 Cor. 15:1-11 (Jeff Gathergood) and 1 Cor.
