Last June 8, 2019, at the ICA Gym, Sucat, Parañaque, the Word for the World Couples Ministry held a much-awaited and very successful, fun-filled, and truly memorable event as an advanced celebration of Father’s Day – a face-off basketball challenge among the ministry’s energetic dads!
Celebrating this special day through a sports activity proved to be an enjoyable event. A wonderful family day to remember, attended by no less than 100 guests and participants from all ages, with 50 couples representing different care groups, it was intended to give the head and pastor of the family the appreciation, honor and respect they deserve for their noble roles and deeds.
"It was not about basketball, but it's all about how we connect; how best to be with family, with the ministry, and fellow men.”
The concept of the event was to have a “fellowship game” that will help establish rapport and camaraderie among ministry brethren, and at the same time, reach out to more couples and draw them to Christ.
The affair was kicked off by an exhilarating zumba dance class for husbands and wives. There were parlor games for attending families during halftime of the basketball match. The day was capped with a sumptuous boodle fight dinner.
The White Team came out as the champion, winning over the Blue Team with just a 2-point advantage. Bro. Dexter Ocampo of the Jehoshaphat Care Group was named the Most Valuable Player, while Bro. Mike dela Cruz from the Boaz Care Group was chosen as the Most Inspired Player despite their team’s loss.
The Couples Ministry is very much grateful to all who took part in this endeavor – the organizers and facilitators of the program, the logistics team, the food committee, the children and moms who have exerted effort to make this event possible, and most especially, the generous sponsors who shared their blessings in the form of cash prizes, giveaways, food, and refreshments.
Honor and glory be to God for allowing this important initiative and for binding the ministry and families together with love and care for each other!
This event was not just a gathering of people but of family celebrating Christ's love for His Church. The Couples Ministry cordially invites and encourages all couples to join its regular fellowship every Saturday at WWCF Makati along Mascardo Street, Tejeros, Makati City, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Come, be blessed, and be a blessing!
To God be all the glory!
