Christmas service Center for Christ was held on Dec 9, 2017 at the GBI Tanjung Duren building in Jakarta Barat. Christmas is always the joyous occasion at the end of every year for Center for Christ. At this time around, we prepared a great service for all of the family members of C4C and its workers. (See photo gallery here)
With only a few weeks of preparation due to the soft opening of the new building, C4C team prepared this service assisted by the personnel from the Blind Friends. The music team of C4C Praise started practicing with very limited right before the event. However, the event turned out to be nothing short from spectacular by the grace of the LORD. Given the short notification and limited preparation time, this Christmas celebration was packed with all of the Blind Friends from Jakarta and around.
This Christmas service was enriched with all kinds of performances by the Blind Friends to glorify our LORD Jesus. They gave singing performances in solos, duets, and groups. Some gave beautiful performances by reciting poem, creating a Christmas family drama, and everyone was greatly entertained.
The message for this Christmas was about "How to follow the footsteps of Jesus." As He came into this world, Jesus is the perfect role model available for every believer, and we are supposed to follow in everything that Jesus did.
The service was concluded by the winner announcement of the Preaching Competition held a few weeks earlier. All of the workers proved that they worked extremely hard to make this possible. Each of the C4C worker showed great creativity, tenacity, and responsibility. It is always a great task to create an event as this. But at the end, it is only by the grace of our LORD Jesus Christ and His overwhelming favor through Center for Christ that this event successfully took place. All the glory to our LORD Jesus Christ.
