UNLIKE the usual church Family
Days, members of Paya Lebar Methodist Church held theirs at the
Serangoon Stadium on June 22, 2003 and invited residents of the
neighbouring Serangoon housing estate to join them.
Organised as part of the church's efforts to reach out to the
community in friendship, the Family Day started with a special
worship service after which church members went out to the nearby
housing blocks to meet residents and escort them to the stadium
for a time of fun and games.
The residents responded favourably and members and friends spent
the morning in fellowship through the various programmes catered
to suit the young and the old alike. Some of the events included
a children's art competition and a lantern-making competition.
