“I am overwhelmed with happiness because of our new and beautiful house of worship. Thanks be to God, as well as to the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo.”
Thus expressed Florita Rollo, a deaconess, reflecting the joy of her fellow members in the Local Congregation of Tiaong in the Ecclesiastical District of Bulacan West, over the dedication of their new house of worship on August 25, 2023.
The newly dedicated 377-seater concrete house of worship is located at Sitio Bacood, Brgy. Tiaong, Guiguinto, Bulacan, Philippines.
The Church Administration sent the General Secretary Brother Rene J. Panoncillo to officiate at the special worship service. In his homily, he cited the Holy Scriptures to give emphasis to the truth that the house of worship is for the glory of the Lord God. He exhorted the congregants to dedicate themselves to worshiping God, as well as other works that bring Him glory.
“The Church officers and members in our local congregation promise that we will love and value our house of worship, and always be devoted to our Church membership,” said the congregation’s resident minister, Brother Neil Marion Borongan.
He added, “We will also never tire in sharing the true faith.” Three days after the dedication worship service, he led the Tiaong Congregation in an evangelical mission they held at their new house of worship. — With reports from Bryan Banlaolay and Jewelyn Sulit of INC News Section
