It has been 26 years of God’s overflowing grace and unending sustenance for the PMCC (4th Watch) Manila Locale. From the humble beginning to what the Lord has made the church today, God ceased not in manifesting His unwavering goodness.
For this reason, the Church rejoiced and celebrated its 26th Anniversary and Thanksgiving service on September 29, 2013 at Palacio de Maynila, Roxas Blvd. Malate, Manila with the theme “Life giving Leads to Sacrificial Giving” lifted from 2 Corinthians 5:8.
At the start of the service, Brother O.J Quillao, together with the Dokimos band led a great number of brethren in offering God our utmost praises and adoration as they expressed gratitude to Him.
The message of blessing was administered by our beloved Bishop Osie Quillao, who is one of the primary examples of a life fully given to the Lord. His spirit of generous giving flows through the brethren in Sampaloc that they were able to give their thanksgiving to our great God, heroically.
The name of the Lord was exalted through various renditions of hymns and instrumental numbers. Maranatha Christian Academy of Manila also offered a song and dance number to God.
With hearts filled with unexplainable gladness, the brethren marched to the thanksgiving boxes and gave our thanksgiving offerings. There really is joy in sacrificing for the Lord.
Then the Words of God spoken through the lips of His sent one, Apostle Arsenio Ferriol filled the church’s thirst and longing to experience God’s strengthening. The brethren were utterly blessed as they listen to the Goodman of the House speak before the Church.
During the altar call, many visitors have accepted the Lord to be their personal Savior.
Indeed this church anniversary was nothing short of a success. To God be all the Glory! (P. de Vera)
