Christmas Cell Group 2008

We had our Christmas cellgroup on 18 Dec 08, which was also our very last cell group meeting for 2008. Thanks to Dorothy and Cheng Yan, who opened up their big and lovely terrace house and allowing all of us to have such a wonderful cell meeting cum Christmas celebration.

We started the meeting with a very fun team activity, which is build-the-nicest-christmas-tree contest! The members were divided into 2 teams and the team that came out with the nicest tree wins. Well, we did not have real Christmas trees to decorate but were given material like paper, some simple party decoration items, balloons, scotchtape, marker etc to create a lookalike Christmas tree from stratch instead. Sounds Interesting? Let's see how creative N116 can be...


Team 1 gets down to work fast...


Team 2 is figuring out what to do with this metal hanger..


Zhi Fu aka 'the judge' pressuring the teams with his constant reminder of time left.


And finally...the works of art!


Joshua 'selling' his team's tree to the judge and explaining why they should win...


And now it's Benny's time to 'sell' his team's tree...


And the winner is....Team 2! Yay..they won dining vouchers! Well..Team 1 was not left out too, they got Ferraro Roche as consolation prize.

After our worship session, we had a special performance by Joshua and Benny. Joshua showcased his singing talent by belting out the tune 'Every Breath You Take' while Benny strummed the guitar. The duo even met up the day before for rehearsal to ensure a good performance, good job guys! Wanna see them in action? Check it out below...

After a great performance, it was time for fellowship, which is the long-awaited yummy Christmas feast prepared by our great chef Daniel! There were yummy cheese meat pie, beef stew, turkey, mango dessert etc...all prepared single-handedly by Daniel, what a noble brother! Thanks Daniel for the great food, we all felt so blessed by you! (P/S: Sorry guys, I'm sad to say there's no pic on this because the photographer was so mesmerized by the food that she forgot to take one...so it's left to your memory and imagination. :P)

Of course other than the yummy feast, a Christmas celebration cannot be completed without the gift exchange part. We had drew lots 2 weeks ago and everyone was supposed to buy a gift of at least $15 to the person that we drew lot on. So we got a great time giving and receiving gifts and knowing the reasons behind each gift. Check out what we've got!




Well...that's not all. We ended the night with a early celebration for our birthday boy Benny, whose birthday falls on Christmas Eve. Happy Birthday Benny!


Showers of blessings for the Birthday boy


Joshua sharing positive things about Benny and he was sooo touched

We got him a nice jacket!
