International Chinese Speaking Conference (2/13-14) Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Living Stream Ministry will again modify the format for the upcoming 2021 International Chinese Speaking Conference. The conference will no longer be held in Taipei, Taiwan. Instead, Living Stream Ministry will host this conference completely online, in a way similar to the 2020 International Memorial Day and Thanksgiving Conferences. We also hope that through the help of the churches there could be online prophesying times by localities after each streamed message. Message Schedule: All the messages of the 2021 International Chinese Speaking Conference will be streamed beginning at the following times: Message 1: 9:00 AM on Saturday, February 13, 2021 Message 2: 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 13, 2021 Message 3: 7:30 PM on Saturday, February 13, 2021 Message 4: 9:00 AM on Lord’s Day, February 14, 2021 Message 5: 11:00 AM on Lord’s Day, February 14, 2021

Lessons for New Believers Reading Challenge (1/1-1/31) The Books serving saints would like to invite all the saints to participate in a reading challenge! From January 1st to the 31st, read through all 25 chapters of Lessons for New Believers. There is a GroupMe in which all those participating can share enjoyment from their reading for one another's mutual encouragement and nourishment. Please contact Philip Lee at (206) 280-6179 if you have not yet been added to the GroupMe. This book contains many lessons with which we must be equipped in order to shepherd new believers. These lessons begin with thirty-eight points that form a firm foundation concerning our salvation and continue with terminating the past, consecration, and walking according to the spirit. Subsequent lessons cover how to meet, the meetings of the church, the expression, oneness, and ground of the church, serving the Lord, preaching the gospel, and the practice of fellowship. This fast-paced reading challenge will provide the saints with a familiarity of many wonderful truths not only for their own benefit but also to shepherd and nourish new believers. As a further incentive, those who read all 25 chapters by January 31st will receive a $10 book sales voucher, redeemable only via the Church in Berkeley book sales. To purchase print copies ($18.03/copy, tax included), please fill out bit.ly/BerkeleyBookOrder. Digital copies can be purchased (Apple, Amazon, Google). It can also be read free of cost on ministrybooks.org.
Saturday Corporate Migration Prayer The Saturday morning migration prayer and fellowship is postponed for the remainder of this month (no corporate prayer this Saturday through the end of the year).
