Ladies Tea Party

This past week our church hosted the 1st Annual Mother & Daughter Tea Party. We had 36 ladies, high-school and older, who attended this event. There was singing, special games (how well do you know each other?), and Rina and Dulce gave a devotion asking the question, what kind of "tea" are you? (beau-"tea", availabili-"tea", modes-"tea" etc.). All of the ladies received a calendar and some tea to take home. The event concluded with everyone snacking on some baked goods and of course, drinking iced tea!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-

Luke 2:7-14
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

8th Church Anniversary

This past Sunday, December 5th, we had our 8th church anniversary. During our morning service we had over 150 people and during our evening service there were over 360 people. We had many visitors attend the services. Pastor Matt spoke at the morning service and Pastor Edwin Samson was our guest speaker during the evening service. We were blessed to have our children’s choir, adult choir, and several special numbers sing during both the services. We also provided food for everyone who attended the evening service. It was a lot of work, but we are thankful for many of our church members who did a great job helping us prepare for the anniversary.

Our theme this year was “Looking Back, Reaching Forward.”

Philippians 3:14
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

We are thankful in remembering, how God used Pastor Nelson to start this ministry in Bahay Pare eight years ago and we are excited and looking forward to what God will be doing in and through our church as we continue to press toward the mark.

We praise and thank God that it was a successful anniversary and that many new visitors were able to hear the clear gospel for the first time. Thank you to all of you that prayed for us during our anniversary. It was a blessing!
