In celebration of its fourth anniversary, notable Church events were held in the Ecclesiastical District of Rizal East at the Ynares Center, Antipolo City, Rizal province, Philippines on August 13, 2023.
The brethren from the whole district arrived at the venue to participate in the Family Fun Day organized by the district’s Christian Family Organizations (CFO) officers. The event not only brought enjoyment and smiles to the brethren but also the bond within their respective families was strengthened.
“(The activity) was indeed full of excitement. Our family had fun taking part in the games. We had the opportunity to really connect more with each other since many of the games we played involved teamwork,” shared Anthony Nieva, a participant from Dema-May-Iba Congregation.
Some of the portions and games featured at the Fun Day were Videoke Challenge, Family Quiz Bee, Unity Walk, and Dodgeball.
A Welcome, Kapatid Ko (Welcome, My Brethren) followed in the evening, in which musical performances were presented by the district’s production ensemble to entertain and welcome the newly baptized brethren, as well as those who are in the process of membership in the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ).
“The events that were held truly inspired our brethren more in living their faith and to be active in all of the Church’s activities and works. Rizal East’s (4th) anniversary celebration then has become remarkable and memorable,” acclaimed Arnel Añonuevo, district KADIWA President. — With reports from Klaudine Amoroso and Leila Soblechero of INC News section
