Church Building Construction. Praise the Lord! The church building is almost done! As of August 31, 2018, we finished the roofing of the church and continues filing of hallow blocks for the walls. We are also blessed with the people in the community who are continued to volunteer. As the church building construction continues, we see how happy and glad our church members are.

The church is praying for additional funds for the completion of our church building here in Cebu City.

Our members were very excited to attend every Worship, they loved to sing, dance and hear God’s loving words. Every Sunday, we encouraged them to invite their friends and neighbors in our worship and share what they have learned about God and his love.

Discipleship Training. This month, our topic in discipleship training is about our Lord Jesus, His Lordship and as a Savior. They get to know Christ even more. Every Sunday, we assigned them in reading of the bibles, presenting offering songs and testimonies. We encouraged them to offer their lives and services to the Lord. We were blessed by how they grow in the knowledge and obedience to the Lord.

Every time we visit them and conduct bible studies they were very excited to hear God’s word. They also enjoy sharing time and testimonies.
