The event encouraged the teens and adults to focus and explore their creative side while learning new painting techniques in an afternoon of fun.

A communion service is a sacred act of spiritual communion
that commemorates Jesus' death on the cross. Prayer meditation and eating the emblems that represent Christ's broken flesh and spilled blood are used to commemorate this solemn occasion. After two years of anticipation, the long-awaited communion ceremony took place on April 23rd, 2022. Members and guests had the opportunity to reflect on what God has done in the previous two years and where they are today. The congregation was also encouraged to prepare their heart and mind to partake of the emblems worthily. Let us never forget Christ's sacrifice for us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
