‘Going out to see and coming back to be’ – this was the informal theme of NUS Varsity Christian Fellowship’s (VCF) Annual Teach-In Camp (AnnTIC) which was held from 26–31 December 2018. AnnTIC is a time when NUS VCFers come together to delve deep into God’s Word through Inductive Bible Study (IBS) sessions, workshops, and theme talks. Below, two students share their main takeaway from AnnTIC.
Bible Camp, like its name suggests, is about studying the Word of God with fellow brothers- and sisters-in-Christ. The overarching theme for the 5 Days 4 Nights NTU CF Bible camp held from 8–12 December 2018, was “His Glory Revealed; Upside Down Kingdom”. Needless to say, it was an intense yet fruitful time for the campers.
FES conducts a missions education and engagement programme, known as MORPH, for university students from our CFs every academic year. 11 students enrolled in the programme for the 2018/2019 academic year. We asked two of them to share with us why they signed up for MORPH and what it has been like for them so far.
FES Chinese Work
As a freshman, this was my first FES Chinese Work Big Family Gathering. Held on 19 October 2018, it was a really eye-opening experience, seeing the wider community of fellow brothers- and sisters-in-Christ beyond NUS. This included the students, graduates, mentors, and our mentors’ mentors!
Christian university students today often face challenges that hinder us from living out a daily life on fire for God. Distractions such as the desire for good grades and an exciting social life tend to cloud our vision and lead us away from Him. Therefore, this year’s James Cook University Singapore Christian Fellowship (JCUS CF) camp, themed Camp L.I.T (Life in Transition), aims to remind us of our Christian identity, and how we can and should be involved in student ministry on campus.
On Saturday, 20 October 2018, 22 of us from NTU ISCF volunteered in Project HomeWorks, an initiative of Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Singapore. This project aims to provide safe sanitary homes for the vulnerable elderly and persons of low income, with disabilities or with social issues living alone in one or two-room rental flats.
