CCM - Fund Raising Dinner
I attended the Council of Churches of Malaysia fund raising dinner held in the Excelsior Hotel on 24th June 2006. Certainly the event was an eye opener as to what CCM is all about. Our pastor, Rev. Ashok is the Chairman of the CCM Perak Regional Committee and he gave a speech that night.
The food was delicious and we were entertained with songs and dances by members of the Methodist Sengoi Mission and the Tamil Methodist Church. There were also speeches from Rev. Bah Saha (Chairman of the Hal Ehwal Bumiputra Indigenous) and Rev. Bah Uda (Superintendent of Sengoi Mission Conference). Bishop Julius Paul presented hampers to the special guests from the Methodist Sengoi Mission conference, Protestant Church in Sabah, Good Shepherd Home and the Salvation Army. Rev. Dr. Hermen Shastri (General Secretary CCM) thanked the guests for their donations and closed the function.
Central to the CCM work is MISSION. It has taken upon itself the task of co-operative mission work with the indigenous churches in Malaysia. For more information you may wish to visit the CCM website at www.ccmalaysia.org
