Last November 13, 2016 the mission congregation in the town of Tagkawayan in Quezon Province celebrates its anniversary and Rev. DS Francis Pera is the preacher. The small congregation started its worship service almost 6 years ago through the mission initiatives of the couple Hayden and Lolit Pineda members of Jesus Reigns UMC (former Pila UMC).
The Pineda couple has acquired a lot in Tagkawayan, Quezon and started doing Bible study among their neighbors. They constructed a worship hall where they conduct Sunday worship service.
Currently, Daisy Francia of Kalinangan UMC (Calauag, Quezon) who is also the president of United Methodist Women is the mission worker assigned in Tagkawayan Mission. More than two years that the church has no assigned pastor or mission workerdue to lack of pastors in the district. Daisy Francia now have responded to the call of continuing the ministry the Pineda couple has started.
The District Lay Leader in the person of Aniceto “Jun” Nieva Jr. (Atimonan UMC) and deaconess Felipina Irenea of Atimonan UMC also attended the anniversary worship.
