It was Sunday Afternoon of February 16, 2014 at around 3 p.m. when the memorable event in the life of the young people of Canigaran FWB Church began. The excitement and happiness in the faces of the participants, visitors, and parents of the young people could be seen with their sweetest smile as they greet each other saying “Hi!” and “Hello!”
Visitors from other churches were welcomed by the youth adviser, Sister Joanne Mae L. Samones and followed by opening prayer led by the Rev. Armando R. Manzano, our church Pastor. The Singspiration was led by Clark Manzano and Company, together with the Canigaran Girls Band who played the instruments. Each church that came to join and celebrate was also recognized. Introduction of the guest speaker was given by Sister Joanne Mae L. Samones. And the most important part of the night was delivering the Word of God that was rendered by Sister Esmie Dalumpines. The theme was “Rendering Your Heart to Jesus” and since it was February she gave a message regarding love, of how Jesus defines love, and how He shows His love upon us. Everyone was blessed and inspired with the message and challenge given by the guest speaker. She gave a challenge and reminder as well to always remember who is worthy to receive unconditional love. She emphasized that love should be given first and foremost to our God, second is you—as it signifies ourselves, third was family and friends, fourth is future husband/wife and the last is future children. After a few minutes of listening to the Word of God, the Canigaran Youth shared their talents through various presentations. The young people from the main church rendered special music. We were so blessed by them.
When it was time to eat, the blessing of the food was led by Sister Helen Joy Lauronilla and followed by an offering. We enjoyed our snacks and fellowship with each other. The program was formally closed by the Vice President, Brother Bobby Saneo, by giving his closing remarks to everyone who came and enjoyed the night.
The purpose of this activity, first, is to share the Word of God to any unbeliever who joined us at youth night and to every young person as well. Second is to promote unity among all our young people, especially those who are within the city proper of our churches. Thirdly, is to show and to develop their talents for the glory of God! Please pray for our young people.
