The first Sunday of August was marked by a great celebration of fellowship. We held at a gymnasium in the downtown area a worship service called “Dia da Familia de Deus” (in English: Day of the Family of God). Around 800 brethren from around the metropolitan area joined as one to praise God and share the Lord’s Supper.
We had a few stands showing some photos with a brief history of the churches that were present at the event. Some churches have been around for a few decades and own their own buildings, while many are new and meet at public schools. These brothers and sisters await eagarly for this yearly event to rekindle many friendships that are made during events like these that promote fellowship within the area.
