Most of us are probably familiar with this story of the starfish. It has appeared in various forms and been told in different ways. As Christ’s disciples, we are called to be the light and salt of the Earth and make a difference wherever God has placed us.
In 2021, the focus was for every worshipper to reach one more in our spheres of influence. In 2022, we focused on being a good neighbour to the residents living near our church as well as being a blessing to the Toa Payoh community.
This year, we not only want to make a difference to the One More in our spheres of influence and Toa Payoh Community but TPMC aims to inspire and equip every member to be His witnesses to the ends of the Earth!
One more to bless.
One more to love.
One more difference made.
Throughout the year, there will be activities for you worshippers to participate in, whether it is in the form of going, giving or praying for missions. So stay tuned and bookmark this page for more information coming your way!
Bless the nations with your going, giving and praying!
