Easter Sunrise Service

Sunrise_service1Members and guests from several GCI congregations gathered at sunrise on Easter Sunday at Lingayen Beach in the Northern Luzon area of the Philippines to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The service was entitled “Panangidayew Ed Ililiwaway Agew” (meaning “Sunrise Celebration”). Eugene Guzon, GCI’s national director for the Philippines (pictured at right), welcomed attendees. This was followed by praise and worship and Easter messages from GCI pastors Napoleon Meimban and Adonis Caguioangasinan.

Following the service, Maria Aurelia R. Ibay who attends our Urdaneta Church, was baptized. The churches participating plan to have Easter Sunrise services at this location in future years.

    Some of my favorite corporate worship experiences were Easter Sunrise services.
    The scenery was a Kansas cow pasture, not a beautiful beach , though!
