Grace Tijerina, pastor of Community of Friends (a SCC church plant in Corpus Christi, Texas) has recently been invited to share and help two other UCIM churches. One of these requests came in the form of helping at the Fuente de Agua Viva open house on Saturday March 25th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The temperature was up to 90 that day and the children were running with hot rosy cheeks. Many attendees could be found sitting under the shade of the trees enjoying their hot dogs, popcorn, drinks, cake, and the wonderful music! Pastor Grace was also asked to attend and help with a potluck at the park with Hope for The Broken Mennonite Church in Los Fresnos, TX.
The Community of Friends church plant celebrated Easter Sunday on April 16th with Prince of Peace Mennonite Church. It was a beautiful Sunday service followed by a meal and Easter egg hunt for the children! Two Community of Friends families in particular (pictured above), Liz Ann, Eliud and their children Elias and Mina and Angie and Husband Josh enjoyed the Easter Sunday service.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support of what God is doing with this church plant in Corpus Christi.
