Very memorable indeed for the brethren in the Local Congregation of Ragay, Ecclesiastical District of Camarines Sur, Philippines was the worship service in commemoration of their congregation’s 55th anniversary. On January 8, 2021, along with other local congregations celebrating their milestone anniversary, the brethren from the said congregation attended via videoconferencing the worship service that was officiated by the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo.
Brethren in Ragay, around 320 kilometers south of Manila, listened attentively to the homily of Brother Eduardo Manalo. They were reminded of the importance of upholding obedience and faithful service to God so that they will have a blessed life and, above all, receive salvation. The Executive Minister reiterated to them that they need not worry or be depressed no matter what happens because God’s promise of protection and salvation to His people stands.
“I am overjoyed because our congregation reached its 55th founding anniversary. We are very blessed for our worship service to be officiated by our Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo,” Gladiola Espina, a deaconess, expressed.
The worship service brought renewed strength to the brethren. They are all the more inspired to face this year knowing that God will continue helping them. Like what they have done in the years past, brethren in Ragay promise to uphold their active services to Him. — With reports from INC News Section
