“We are most thankful to the Lord God because, through the Church Administration, He allowed the establishment of a new group worship service in our district, as we commemorate the 137th birth anniversary of God’s Messenger in these last days, Brother Felix Y. Manalo.”
This was expressed by Brother Roderick C. Chulvo, district supervising minister of the Ecclesiastical District of Urdaneta City, Pangasinan regarding newly established San Pablo GWS the inaugural worship service of which he officiated on May 10, 2023.
Exactly 137 years before that date, Brother Manalo (1886-1963), who first preached about the true Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in these last days, was born.
In his homily, Brother Chulvo reminded the brethren the importance and benefits of responsive obedience to God’s righteous words that were taught by the Messenger and are continuously taught by the Church Administration.
The members of the San Pablo GWS, who used to attend worship services in the house of worship of the Cayambanan Local Congregation, now have their own place of worship. It is in a building at a compound owned by the family of Jeffrey Nazaro, head deacon of the said congregation, located at 141 Pendicitis, San Pablo, Binalonan, Pangasinan.
Brother Rommel Torrazo, ministerial worker assigned in the new GWS, said, “Now, that the place of worship is much closer to the brethren, it will be much easier for them to devote themselves to these sacred occasions.” — With reports from Elykim Mamasig and Trishia Gundran of INC News Section
