A NEWLY ESTABLISHED CHURCH IN DAVAO CELEBRATES ITS FIRST ANNIVERSARY –
This church is formed by the group from the Riverside Christian Fellowship situated at Barangay Riverside, Calinan, Davao City who saw the need to minister to people within the Barangay Calinan proper. In a launching that was held last year, the group agreed to bear Haverim Christian Community as the name of the fellowship.
Prior to holding this grand affair, 17 individuals who have included 12 young people and 5 adults committed to water baptism. The church is requesting if they be assisted in prayer as they now need a wider space for worship gathering. Presently, they are paying Pph4,000.00 each month for the place where they gather for worship conducting two services every Sunday.
Bishop Efren Miranda was invited guest speaker who expounded on the theme “God’s Limitless Favor” emphasizing on the privileges enjoyed from God being the Almighty, one who is known for his Creativity and his being known for Accuracy. Group presentation of talents also highlighted the event. Lunch was served after the service.
