These are the people whose purpose is to manifest the love of God by connecting and reaching out to people. Their love, commitment, and trust to God shows in their discipleship of their brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Connect Pillar and its family live in this message of Jesus in the scriptures: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Mathew 29:19-20)
We also encourage everyone to join the Light Group. It is a small gathering of people interested in their spiritual growth. In the light groups, people can open up, listen, learn, pray for each other and grow in faith together. It provides a way to meet the needs of people who need encouragement in their spiritual journey.
Find out how you can love others more by being part of any of the Life Ministries under Connect Pillar and by joining the Light Group. You may approach and look for Sis Mye Escolano, Connect Pillar Head.
