Prayer Requests:

1. For our Couples Fellowship, that many couples will join and receive Christ as their Savior on that night! Pray for our speaker, Pastor Ronald Cutamora and his wife, Dra. Em Cutamora.

2. For many young people/adults to sign up as Teachers and Assistants in our DVBS; and for many parents and children to join us and hear the Gospel.

January 1-15, 2009 Webletter

1. Praise God! We have started 2 new congregations in 2008–1 in Bgy. Kinan Owan, Bohol, through the efforts of Pastor Ernie Repala, our church planter there; and 1 in Bgy. Bangkal, Mactan, through the work of Pastor Henry Trocino and Jimboy Eraga. These new worshipers are mostly new believers and disciples. Please Pray for their continued walk in the Lord. (Monthly budget is only P 6,000.00 or $ 136.00. Donations are welcome!)

2. Please pray with us for a church lot, where we could put up a church building and Christian School.  For years now, the church has been renting rooms for worship.  The Lord will provide!

3. We will hold our Annual Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS) again with 100+ kids in a targeted barangay, tentatively set on April 8-10 (Holy Week).  This is a great opportunity to reach both kids and their parents for Christ.  Pray for more teachers, funds, and more kids/parents to receive Christ and follow Him.

4. PTL!, for brethren here and abroad who continue to support our church prayerfully and financially.  You are investing your pesos/dollars for eternity!

5. Check out all my sermons, news, etc. in my new blog, “The Glory of His Grace,” at henrytrocino.wordpress.com.  Just type, “henrytrocino.wordpress.com.”  My purpose is to magnify the glory of God’s grace.  The goal of God is the glory of God.  His glory drives all His actions.  By divine grace, God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world.  By the same grace, He redeemed and forgave me–an undeserving sinner, by the blood of Christ.  He did it so that we will give Him praise for glorious grace.  I should therefore live for God.  My life is a testimony of His grace.  This and many more, you will see in my blog.

Watch out for more updates in this site bi-monthly!

God bless you and yours this 2009!

Pastor Henry

New Webletter

Dear Brethren and Friends,

I’m pleased to launch our new GGCF WEBLETTER at the current God of Grace Christian Fellowship, Inc. website. We thank the Lord for the people behind netministries.org, who made this site possible. I call it a “webletter,” because it’s a newsletter on the web.

It’s nothing fanciful.  But in this simple bi-monthly webletter, you will find all news items and prayer requests of the church. You will know what’s happening in our ministry of proclaiming the God of Grace and the Glory of His Grace. Since space is limited, the webletter will be updated once every 2 weeks or bi-monthly. It will give you time to read it over 1-2 weeks.

Do find time to read it. Just type, “God of Grace Christian Fellowship Cebu City,” through Yahoo, not Google. (I don’t really know why it doesn’t appear through Google.) You will find the link at the top of the page.  (You won’t miss it!)  Then click the link. You will be there in no time.

Happy reading!

Yours in His Glorious Grace,

Henry
