The United Church of Christ in the Philippines Sibulan will celebrate her 100th year of bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the tradition of the Protestant faith in Sibulan town this month of December 2010.{{more}}

Highlighting the centennial celebration of UCCP Sibulan is a thanksgiving worship service in the morning of the 19th, the Handulantaw vesper worship service and recognition night at 5 pm n the same date, followed by a choir concert dubbed Pamasko sa Plaza by the Sibulan Gospel Choir at 9 pm.

The church’s youth band Z’Mar then takes over as the church counts down to midnight, Dec. 20, the established founding date of the church.

The Sibulan Presbyterian Protestant Church was founded by local converts to the Protestant faith as a result of mission work by evangelist Angel Sotto with the support of then Silliman Institute. The church then became part of UCCP in 1948 when mainline protestant churches in the Philippines came together to form a Filipino protestant church under the reformed evangelical tradition.

On Friday, Dec. 10 at 6 pm, the UCCP CYF Band Z’Mar will hold a free concert titled Break Free at the Sibulan Municipal Auditorium.

With the theme, Ang katawhan sa Dios madasigong nagatagbo sa hagit sa panaghiusa, UCCP Sibulan hopes to be a catalyst of bringing together the community in Sibulan to experience God’s goodness and grace. (PR)
