The Local Congregation of Rome, Ecclesiastical District of Italy South held a two-part activity on May 1, 2022 for newly-baptized members as well as guests. First was the film showing followed by the “Welcome, My Brethren” program.
For the film showing activity, attendees watched the film Felix Manalo, the 2015 film about the life and ministry of the man whom Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members believe to be God’s Messenger in the last days as attested to by fulfillment of biblical prophecies. The activity was held at the congregation’s house of worship.
After watching the movie, the attendees were treated to the “Welcome, My Brethren” held within the compound of the house of worship. They watched song and dance performances from select members of various Christian Family Organizations (CFO) featuring Iglesia Ni Cristo original music.
“We thank our Lord God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Church Administration for approving these activities,” said Brother Ronaldo Flor, district Light of Salvation (LOS) overseer. “The attendees were elated with the film showing, even our guests, as they learned more about the life of God’s Messenger in these last days. In the ‘Welcome, My Brethren,’ the performers showcased their talents and they were appreciated by the audience. Many of the guests said that they will continue to listen to the biblical teachings being upheld in the Church,” he added. — With reports from INC News Section
To promote Christian values to children, the Children’s Worship Service (CWS) officers from the Ecclesiastical District of Tokyo, Japan had the young brethren from the local congregations of Yokota and Yokohama watch the animation INCinema film “Kahit ako ay bata” (Even if I’m young) on January 10, 2021.
From their homes, the kids watched the movie with excitement. They were also delighted to see the film together with their parents. It was a bonding moment for the family.
In the activity, the young brethren learned to be polite and give respect to the elderly. It was also a chance for them to develop and value their faith as members of the Church Of Christ.
CWS officers provided a Japanese translation for the young Japanese brethren in Yokohama to understand the story.
The brethren are thankful to the Church Administration for the love and concern. They promised to actively participate in all Church activities. ― With reports from INC News Section
