The District of Quezon initiated a ministry program for children in the town of General Luna of Quezon Province which was a new mission area and conducted a 3 Day Vacation Church School class last May 12 – 14, 2014.
Headed by District Nurture Ministries Felipina P. Irenea – a deaconess of Atimonan UMC with 3 young people also from Atimonan and from other churches volunteered to teach 80 children in Purok Otso in the town of General Nakar. It is the first time for United Methodists to conduct a VCS class in the area which are hosted by its mission pastor -Pastor Reynaldo Francia with his two pastor twins Pastor Raymar and Pastor Raymund. They we’re also helped by Pastor Vincent Pacto of Lopez Mission and a young people from his church.
The teaching team uses the “I Follow Jesus” VCS material from the Board of Christian Education and Discipleship of the Philippines Central Conference. The venue is a beautiful place though around 2 hours from the nearest United Methodist local church because the place is near the beach. The teachers do not only enjoyed teaching the children in the area but also the view. And above else thy enjoyed teaching the children as their service to Jesus as they follow him.
