Tseung Kwan O has a New Church!
Faith Family Church—TKO!
“Launch Sunday” by the numbers:
440 people attended the combined services
67 were children
662 people viewed the live-stream on Facebook
86 people made a decision for Christ!
62 HKDI students volunteered (most all were unsaved)
Nearly everyone who visited came because of the city-wide advertising on Billboards, Buses, Subway Trains, and Mailers.
Thanks so much to all who gave towards this launch, making the advertising possible!!!
The launch morning greeted us with a cold and rainy day, but visitors got out their umbrellas and came anyways. Most had never been to a church service ever in their lives, and a few others that had said they’d never been to a contemporary service like this.
There was a strong connection made with many families. We believe these families will be the foundation of the church. Parents shared how they felt like everyone was so loving and their kids didn’t want to leave.
A young lady who attend the service with her sister, shared how she had been praying for a church. She was contemplating suicide, feeling totally unwanted. Now she and her sister are looking to connect with the church and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
The “church launch phase” is not over! Over the next few weeks the attendance is expected to drop. But after about a month it should stabilize and we’ll have a core group of people who will “stick” and then growth will continue from there.
A school has allowed us to temporarily use their school hall for services for the next month. We are still searching for a long-term location (which we sent an email about a couple of weeks ago). Please keep this in prayer!
We’ll keep you updated as things progress!
Thanks again to all of you who prayed and gave to help make this possible!!!
