The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) membership continues to grow even amid Covid-19 pandemic, and it is manifest as the brethren throughout the Ecclesiastical District of Manitoba attended through video streaming the inaugural worship service of the Moose Jaw Group Worship Service (GWS) on September 13, 2020.
Observing proper health protocols, Moose Jaw GWS’ pioneering brethren attended the worship service, which was held at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Regina, before conducting on their own at Moose Jaw. Assisted by ministers of the gospel assigned in various congregations in the district, Brother Sidney Santos, district supervising minister, officiated at the holy occasion. He preached what the Bible teaches on how to surmount sins and temptations of this world so one would become worthy of receiving the promised salvation. Afterwards, they conducted the signing of the declaration of the GWS establishment.
Uplifted, Loreta Gonzales, deaconess, said, “It’s so happy and so blessed that we are finally a GWS. We in Moose Jaw will always submit to the authority of the Church Administration, especially in the work of propagation, so that this GWS will grow.”
Moose Jaw is a city situated in the southern part of Saskatchewan Province with over 33,000 population. Brethren who live there have to drive 71 kilometers stretch of Trans-Canada Highway to attend worship services at Regina. Now that the worship services will be more accessible, on behalf of the Moose Jaw GWS, Aniceto Loquisan, deacon, said, “We will all the more devote ourselves to worshiping and serving our Lord God.” ― With reports from INC News Section
