Jesus Is Lord Church
JIL Surrey recently held a successful pre - Valentine’s Couples’ Night last February 9, 2013 at Stefanos Restaurant in New Westminster, British Columbia.
It was truly an evening to remember for the couples & singles who showed up as they were treated to a feast of sumptuous Mediterranean food & live music provided by a band of Filipino musicians.
It was also an opportunity to invite friends from outside the church as part of JIL’s evangelism activities. This was evidenced by the Obsanga couple who invited their officemates Lucy & Sanchu to enjoy the evening with them.
Furthermore, the event served as a sort of welcoming for new immigrants like Sis. Jannie’s parents & Bro Ephraim’s wife & family who waited for years for their papers to be processed & for them to be reunited.
Finally, for those who attended, it was a time for bonding, relaxation & even some dancing! A much needed break from the course of their busy lives. For the Word of God says in 1 Corinthians 10:31, “So whether we eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
The fundamental message we can glean from this celebration is nurturing the love we have for each other, whether as a couple, single or a whole family with Jesus Christ in the center of it all.For in JIL, we are after all, a part of one big happy family.
To God be the glory!!!
