Shine-youth-focus

It is our pleasure again this year to join with The Whole World Mobilizing in celebrating children and youth during the weekend of 23 – 25 March, 2018.

The theme for this weekend will be “Shine” based on the scripture in Isaiah 60:1. It is our sincere prayer that this intentional focus will help children, youth and families come to understand and experience the true Light that comes from knowing Christ and allow Him to guide their paths. We pray that God’s Light will shine in every dark corner of our world as children and youth respond to God’s call to “Arise and shine!” because “the glory of the LORD has risen on them.” (Isaiah 60:1)

12 Days

December 26-January 6th are the  “12 Days of Christmas”.

This devotional brochure provides ideas to ponder whether you are alone, a couple or a whole family! 

In Europe in the Middle Ages, Christmas was not one day, but a season of twelve days which began on December 25th and concluded on January 6th, Epiphany, when the Three Wise Men found the Christ Child and worshipped Him.  (Matthew 2:9-11)

Today in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries January 6th is celebrated as Three Kings Day and children receive presents commemorating the gifts of the Kings brought to Jesus.
