Youth members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) from two local congregations in the Ecclesiastical District of Tarlac City, Tarlac, Philippines, eagerly participated in activities that not only brought them together but also taught them skills and, more importantly, true Christian values.

In the Local Congregation of Armenia, the Children’s Worship Service (CWS) officers led their younger fellow brethren in watching on November 12, 2023 at their house of worship the INCinema film “Tahanang Walang Bubong (Home Without a Roof)” of the Lingayen Pangasinan District. Promoting obedience to God’s will and healthy family relationship, the film depicted the life of a couple who, having rushed into getting married during their early 20s, experienced many setbacks that greatly affected not only their relationship but also the unwilling victim, their child. With God’s mercy and help, the couple eventually realized that their ordeals were learning experiences. Thus, things still turned out for their good; that is, they found themselves active members of the true Church, which God expects of His true servants.

“The film made the youth understand that to overcome various tests of life they need to be obedient to all of God’s commands, one of which is being prayerful,” said Reymark Umali, a CWS officer.

“We have God,” Leanne Pineda, a CWS member, said in an interview after the film showing. “Experiencing problems … must never let a true servant of God to lose hope in Him. He knows our worries. We should always pray to Him, and He will surely guide us,” she explained.

Meanwhile, a Doodle Art activity was held at the house of worship compound of the Local Congregation of Sto. Domingo on November 18, 2023.

The KADIWA and Binhi officers led fellow youth members in the said activity, which “tapped our skills in the field of art,” said Roana Joy Villegas, the congregation KADIWA president.

Carl Justine Ela, a Binhi member, shared, “It’s kind of refreshing to me. I’m always excited to participate in activities like this.” — With reports from Galore Pangan and Zy Daquigan of INC News Section
