June 2019 is our NLRC Sports Month. Over the two weekends (from 1st to 8th June), we had a total of 10 sports events: Children Telematch, Captain Ball, Badminton, Futsal, Basketball, Table Tennis, Bowling, Run Relay, Dodgeball and Go Kart. Throughout all the games, everyone gave their 110% to win and the competitive spirit was palpable.
Kudos to all NLRC members for inviting their friends (many are pre-believers) to participate in the various sports, evidently, they attended the medal presentation ceremony as well as there were many new faces on that Sunday. Also, hats off to all NLRC game captains, organizing committee members, volunteers, supporters and also the chairman of sports month, Brother Darren Cheong for all the hard work in organizing the events. You all did a fantastic job in ensuring all the ten (10) events were organized and executed successfully. You deserve a BIG hug and a pat on the back for a job well done.
Congratulations to Yellow Team for winning overall champion, Blue Team for 1st runner-up position and Red Team for 2nd runner-up position. Not forgetting Green Team for trying our best – we enjoyed great sportsmanship in all the games.
Here’s what some church members have to say about Sports Month:
So glad to be part of New Life’s Sports Day! I was in the Yellow Team for the Run Relay. The energy was great! It was so much fun cheering on team mates (and knowing the Green Team already bagged the gold LOL). I got to know some new friends and to catch up with some old friends. It was really good to see all the church members working together in a race for points for their respective houses. Thanks for having me in the team! – Michelle Chua
The table tennis event was a mixture of church members and guest players for each team that included friends from neighbouring church and a few pre-believers from the table tennis fraternity of Forum 19 Club. Also, having our beloved Youth Pastor Hock playing for Red House – led to lots of youthful laughter and good fun. In the end, every team was a winner in one way or another. – Peter Phang
The games were great but the fellowship we’ve gotten from the experience was far greater! I’m grateful to have been a part of this. Definitely looking forward to join the next New Life-Olympics! – Jack Cha
Finally, let us remember winning is not important, but it’s important to share the love of God with everyone, we are all called to share the Good News!
