To hone their creativity and equip themselves with skills that would be beneficial in the future, Children’s Worship Service (CWS) members from the Local Congregation of Spruce Meadows, Ecclesiastical District of Calgary, in Canada, attended the CWS Mosaic-Making and Sign Language activities. These were held at their congregation’s function hall on May 26 and 28, 2023, respectively.

In the Mosaic-Making activity, the CWS officers led and introduced mosaic as well as simple ways on how to make one. They then guided the children in making their own artwork using paper, glue, and pattern drawings as reference.

Meanwhile, the Sign Language activity was led by Farrah Gustillo, a Sign Language interpreter. She introduced to the young members the Christian Society for the Deaf (CSD), the organization in the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) for its Deaf members.

Gustillo also informed the attendees the importance of learning Sign Language, that is, to be able to communicate with their Deaf brethren. Then, both the CWS officers and children of the congregation eagerly learned how to sign the alphabet, numbers, commonly used phrases, and Church terminologies. Afterwards, they practiced their new skills, and participated in interactive exercises.

Brother Johnny Adalla, resident ministerial worker, supervised both CWS activities. — With reports from Rafael Lagatic of INC News Section
