On June 20, 2023, the newly baptized members and those in the process of joining the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) from the Ecclesiastical District of Italy South were welcomed by the brethren through a musical program held at the chapel compound of the Local Congregation of Firenze.
In the first part of this two-pronged activity, select members of the various Christian Family Organizations (CFO) performed song and dance numbers in rendition of Iglesia Ni Cristo original music.
After the “Welcome, My Brethren” event, which aimed to give further inspiration to the new and prospective members alike in upholding their faith in the true Church, care packages were distributed to the attendees.
Appreciative of the brethren’s kind gesture, Billie Matias, one of the guests, expressed, “What I attended today tells a lot about the Church Of Christ. Thanks for the warm welcome. It truly gives me more reasons to continue what I started in the Church.”
“We are grateful to our Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, because He continues allowing us to carry out these activities so that we can follow the commands of our Lord God, especially in the work of propagation,” said Brother Dyan Barcebal, resident ministerial worker of the Firenze Congregation. — With reports from Zonny Grace del Valle of INC News Section
