A new house of worship of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) has risen in Dangcagan, Bukidnon, Philippines and it was dedicated to the Lord God through a special worship service on June 4, 2021.
It was built for the Local Congregation of Dangcagan in the Ecclesiastical District of Bukidnon, whose members attended the dedication service during which they offered praises and glory to the Lord God for giving them a new house of worship.
Brother Alnorfo Jurada, district supervising minister, officiated at the holy gathering. In his homily, he emphasized through the Bible about the importance of the house of worship in the life of God’s chosen people.
“Despite the worries and trials in this world, our Lord God continues to fulfill His promise in helping His people even in the construction of houses of worship, we trust God and thank Him and the Church Administration,” Brother Clarito Capili, assistant district supervising minister, said in an interview.
