Celebrations may come and go, but church anniversaries are the best one to celebrate because it is a mark of another year that God has faithfully and mightily blessed the PMCC (4th Watch) most especially for Padilla and Maligaya Locale as they celebrated their 3rd Church Anniversary last September 10, 2017.
At Padilla Locale, after Pastor Rodel Quiambao taught during the Sunday School, Master of Ceremony, Sister Donna Servallos called the attention of the brethren as the Divine Worship began. The congregation filled the halls with joyful singing in the delight of the event.
The theme, “Rejoicing in God’s Glorious Riches in Christ” (Ephesians 2:6-7) highlighted the day’s event as Pastor Polly Mendoza, Area Coordinator of Zion Area and Marikina Locale Head Pastor, delivered firmly the Word of God. He instructed the brethren that despite trials and sufferings, God is faithful to His promises. All will get to experience the eternal rejoicing of God’s glorious riches that are found in Christ. Of over 757 attendees, there were 321 visitors and 34 of them were new souls in the Church.
Later afternoon of the same day, Maligaya Local Church of PMCC (4th Watch) celebrated their 3rd Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving. Each of the brethren was a proof that God has never abandoned His Church in Mambugan, Antipolo City.
As the Worship Service started, the brethren sang praises led by Sister Nema Lumelay together with Maligaya’s Praise and Worship Team in adoration for God’s goodness for the past 3 years that the locale has been in His plentiful grace.
The speaker of the day, Head Pastor of Marikina Locale, Pastor Polly left the call of challenge to the brethren of Maligaya on how to level the service for God in preparation of His glorious riches that He had prepared for His Church. All of the 229 attendees have witnessed the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Of the 32 visitors who had heard the Word of God from the PMCC (4th Watch) for the first time, 19 were baptized and were added to the Church. Maligaya Locale was indeed an embodiment of their anniversary theme: “Rejoicing in God’s Glorious Riches in Christ” (Ephesians 2:6-7)
