Senior Citizen

The Senior Citizen group was formed in about 1991 by the late Mr. Fong Chen Thau when Rev. Koo Tuk Su was Rector. The attendance was only a few senior couples. It was later handed over to Ps. Sim. The weekly gathering was in the Common Room and the attendance was about 20 persons. After Ps. Sim’s transferred to Kota Kinabalu, Ps. Man Kok Kee took over the ministry. A senior citizen committee was immediately formed until today after the resignation of Ps. Man’s. The seniors visited churches in Kota Kinabalu, Labuan, Ranau and Lahad Datu. In 2006 attended the Diocesan Senior Retreat in Kudat led by Ps. Margaret Chong. The committee had in earlier years organised 2 trips to Kundasang for retreat led by Ps. Sim and Rev. Green. There were many places of interests were visited in Sandakan areas in the past year. The present weekly attendance is about 40 – 50 persons. The ministry is held every Friday at 9:00am. They will learn the Word of God, ‘spiritual exercise’, celebrate Christmas and Chinese New Year, birthday celebration for every 3 months. Pray for God to continue to bless the seniors to grow in the knowledge of God.
