Psalm 1: 1-3
“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.”
One who hears God,
obeys God and helps
another person to do the same.
A family of people who are
connecting, growing, serving on their God-given calling together.

Holy MatrimonyThe Holy Matrimony is the marriage ceremony for marrying couples in Hope Church Kuching. The couple is required to consult with Hope Church Kuching leadership prior to the civil marriage so as to facilitate clear communication. After the civil marriage registration, the couple should not stay together until after the church Holy Matrimony. Although the couple may be legally married, the marriage is sealed only after the church wedding ceremony. The couple is to abstain from sexual relationship after civil marriage and before the Holy Matrimony. The couple is required to attend The Marriage Preparation Course and/or receive Premarital Counselling prior to the Holy Matrimony.
Marriage BlessingThe Marriage Blessing is service designed for couples who have had a civil marriage ceremony in Malaysia or abroad, prior to engaging the church in the premarital process, and want to have a church service afterwards. The couple is required to attend The Marriage Preparation Course and/or receive Premarital Counselling prior to the Marriage Blessing. The difference between the marriage blessing and holy matrimony is that the couple is recognized as already married. In this service, the couple affirms their commitment to each other, and the minister prays for blessings upon the marriage. The couple will make vows to affirm their dedication to each other. There will be no giving away of the bride by the father of the bride. There will be no unveiling of the bride.
Marriage RenewalThe Marriage Renewal is a service for those who wish to renew their marriage vows. The couple is encouraged to join The Marriage Course to strengthen the marriage relationship.
