Men's Sunday (15-11-2015)
We celebrated Men's Fellowship Day on 15th November at Risen Redeemer as a part of events organised by the diocese of Chennai. A special Sunday worship service was conducted for men. Also, a one day retreat was organised. The sermon was given by a guest speaker Mr. J. Paul Prakash, who is a teacher. As part of the celebration, cake was distributed to everyone after the service. Also a hot and delicious breakfast of idli, sambar, chutney, vada and tea was served.
After breakfast, about 50 men participated in the retreat. Rev. Mohan (ECI), who is also the elder brother of our pastor Rev. Indira Francis, gave a special sermon. A quiz on the Gospel of Matthew was conducted by pastor Rev. Indira Francis. Only few men had diligently prepared for the quiz. Mr. Jeevan Kumar, Mr. Silas and Mr. Joshua won the first, second and third prizes respectively. Congrats! Rev. Paul Francis distributed gifts to the men. After the closing prayer, lunch was served to everyone in the parish hall.
Inspite of being a rainy day, we are glad that several men stayed to attend the events. We thank our pastors Rev. Paul Francis and Rev. Indira Francis and PC members for organising and conducting the retreat. We also thank our secretary Mr. V.S. Jebaraj and treasurer Mr. Godwin for making it happen.
Above all we thank our Lord Jesus Christ, for blessing the day! We encourage more men to participate in such future events.
