Last Sunday, October 23, our church plant in Apalit launched their first worship service at the 2nd Floor of JNW Building, located along McArthur Highway, Sampaloc in Apalit, Pampanga. Under the leadership of Pastor Edwin Navarro, church planting efforts for Apalit begun as early as July, and construction of the center was started by August this year.
Apalit is an urban municipality located in the province of Pampanga. It has an estimated population of 101,537, as of the 2010 census. The municipality is surrounded by Macabebe, Masantol, Minalin and San Simon in Pampanga, and Calumpit, Pulilan, Baliuag. It is home to numerous schools for elementary and high school students. This means that a great number of souls, especially the next generation, are waiting to be touched and to be transformed by the gospel.
Pray with us as we reach out to more Pampangueños! We’re in faith that more families, students, and young professionals in Apalit will get to hear the gospel regularly. Let us intercede for our pastors, leaders, and volunteers in this new church plant as they advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines. Don’t forget to invite your family and friends in the area, too!
