Holding on to God’s faithfulness and grace despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Novaliches Christian Fellowship celebrated its 28th Anniversary this entire month of August 2020. With the theme “Pressed Yet Pressing On” from 2 Corinthians 4:7-10, this year’s celebration was unprecedented, both in terms of the challenges during the ongoing community quarantine and the Lord’s abundant provisions that made the anniversary push through on a scale that the congregation has never done before. Social distancing measures have reduced the number of physical attendees to the sanctuary at a bare minimum, but with the talents and hardwork of NCF’s multimedia team, the congregation was able to continuously hold its service online, allowing the rest of the members to participate wherever they are, including many of NCF’s members and friends abroad. Maximizing the blessings of the Internet and social media,

So began the celebration on August 2. The praise-and-worship was led by the Music Ministry, with a cover of “Pressed, But Not Crushed” by Shannan Miller adopted as the anniversary theme song. During the preaching, NCF Senior Pastor, Rev. Mark Dantes, drew from God’s Word to emphasize the need to keep the faith despite the pressures of the pandemic. Resilience during times of crisis and looking forward to the Lord’s promises would continue to be the exhortation for the next Sundays. After the service, the congregation were treated to an afternoon anniversary fellowship via Zoom. Far from each other but united in spirit, each family held the annual Love Feast online along with the few who were hosting the service in the sanctuary. After a lunch full of fellowship and kumustahan, young and digitally-savvy Clayhouse ministry hosted several games actively participated in by members of all ages.

Join us on Sundays!
