Philippine Evangelical Friends Church (PEFC) celebrated Christmas by remembering the greatest gift humanity ever received in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is the real reason for every celebration of Christmas. It is also through the example of Jesus when he gave his life as ransom for the forgiveness of sins of those who believe that PEFC extends a generous attitude toward its members and the community at large.
We praise God for the generosity of our members who faithfully bring their gifts, tithes, and offerings to the church to meet its every need and be able to respond to the need of others as well. As the church celebrates Christmas we were able to bless our church community and others with significant gifts that provided food on their tables on Christmas Eve!
In all these, we give God the praises and glory for his faithfulness to his people. We continue to lift our church family to the Lord for his protection, continued favor and provision in 2022!
Praise God for the successful launching of Taytay Evangelical Friends Church (TEFC) located in West Bank, Floodway, Taytay, Rizal. We are exceedingly grateful to the Lord for his faithfulness and grace that he established his church in the challenged area of Taytay. He raised faithful leaders who passionately share the gospel and extend the love of Christ in their community through preaching the holy scriptures and in many practical and tangible ways.
In partnership with faithful Friends and partners in the ministry TEFC was able to give Christmas gift in the form of grocery items to poor families in the community. A delightful fellowship over sumptuous meal followed the worship celebration. Children were given gifts and meals the previous day (Saturday) during their Christmas celebration.
Jesus himself taught his disciples that whatever they do to people in need around them, they do to him as well. Looking after the welfare of the church and its surrounding community is part of the mission of “discipling nations” that Christ himself instructed his disciples.
Please continue to pray for this newly established church that it will effectively proclaim God’s glory in Jesus Christ. Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance as the leadership composed of relatively young elders. They may be young in age but certainly mature in faith. Thank you for the presence of Pastor Memma Necesito Abella and Marie Anb Ezeonyilimba who represented PEFIM BOE. We appreciated your presence very much!
Sa Diyos ang Papuri! Soli Deo Gloria! God alone Be Praised! Be blessed Friends!
