To inspire the younger generation to stay physically and spiritually active, the leadership of the Ecclesiastical District of Manitoba, Canada, organized various activities for the Children’s Worship Service (CWS) officers and members.

One of the activities was the general assembly of the CWS officers on March 5, 2023. Those from the metropolitan region of Winnipeg attended at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Winnipeg South, which served as the host site. Attendees from other local congregations connected through videoconferencing.

Brother Roland Andrade, district supervising minister, taught the relevance of living a holy way of life to the CWS officers’ performance of their God-given duty.

Afterwards, Brother Jeiel Robregado, district Christian Family Organizations (CFO) overseer, gave a few reminders regarding the scope of the officers’ duties. Then, he relayed the CWS activities for the whole year.

“The children see us, CWS officers, perform our duty. That way they learn from us. So, fulfilling our duty in accordance with God’s will is crucial to their being active members of the Church,” said John Aguirre, assistant CWS district chairperson and CWS teacher from the Local Congregation of Fort Garry.

Meanwhile, a sports clinic for the CWS members was held five days earlier, on February 28. Led by the CWS officers, the children members learned the basics of floor hockey and dodgeball at the function hall of the Local Congregation of Weston.

“These indoor activities are timely as the winter season here in our area nears,” said Jaybez Javier, CWS district chairperson. “During winter season, indoor activities, such as this, encourage the children to move around, improve their physical capacity, and break away sometimes from sedentary activities.” — With reports from INC News Section
