22-24 October 2019 -- Gospel Week

 

The Gospel Week was held from 22-24 October 2019, on the theme "A Life Worth Living". Upon observation that students’ pursuit of academic results or extracurricular achievements may lead to a sense of despondency among some, the Youth Fellowship shared with the school community the eternal value of life in Christ. Through skits, a mime, a video, and worship sessions across three assemblies, the Youth Fellowship shared an alternative path to merely striving for our best out of our own strength: that is, to fix our eyes upon the eternity of God’s Kingdom, and the true joy and peace that comes in accepting His plan for our lives.

The Harvest Festival, an annual whole-school thanksgiving celebration, was held on the third day of the Gospel Week. Students and teachers alike shared in the joy of giving and sharing, through generous donations of food and money to the needy.

An evangelistic meeting was also held in the afternoon of the last day. The Youth Fellowship’s worship team led the school in worship through various Christian songs. We were deeply grateful to have Dr. Winnie Fung, former DGS head girl and top scholar, as our speaker. Dr. Fung reminded us that our achievements do not determine our worth. She also shared about the counter-intuitive nature of God’s love - how Jesus chose to give up his identity as God to become a man and a servant, and to ultimately die on the Cross for our sake. Many members of our community were touched by this message, and we hope to continue to share our faith, hope and love in the days to come.
