In a display of unity and environmental concern, brethren from the Ecclesiastical Districts of Bogo City, Cebu and Capiz, both part of the Visayas region of the Philippines, conducted a coastal clean-up drive in their respective areas.

Driven by their faith to be united with the Church Administration, brethren from the Local Congregations of PondolDulanganPres. RoxasManoling, and Bughaan, as well as the Nabunbon Group Worship Service (GWS), under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Capiz, joined together to clean the coastal area of Barangay Natividad, Pilar Capiz, on January 20, 2024.

Gelyn Dorado, choir member and district multimedia officer in the Local Congregation of Dulangan, shared, “As preparation, we went early to the venue to prepare the things necessary for the success of the activity.”

Brother Aaron Roque, resident ministerial worker of the said local congregation, emphasized, “The purpose of the activity is to help our fellow citizens residing in Barangay Natividad to maintain the cleanliness of the surroundings, especially on our shores.”

Meanwhile, in the Ecclesiastical District of Bogo City, Cebu, under the guidance of Brother Dante Mujar, district supervising minister, the brethren gathered on February 3, 2024, for a coastal clean-up drive in line with the INC Giving project of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ).

Before heading to the site, they first received instructions from Brother Mujar on the event’s implementation. The brethren, led by the district officers of the Buklod organization, diligently worked to pick up scattered garbage along the shore of San Remigio, a municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines.

Brother Patrick Macanas, minister of the gospel, highlighted the Church members’ response to this activity, stating, “The brethren eagerly anticipated and actively participated in this endeavor, leading to its success.”

Both districts’ activities underscore the commitment of Church members to contribute positively to their communities. – With reports from Jeanvie Antojado and Queendelle Boctoc of INC News Section
