First Worship Service in São Marcos

There are several families that attend our host church in Carcavelos but live in São Marcos (yet another suburb of Lisbon).    The fact is that in this community of 17,000 people there is no church.  These families drive (when not working) to Carcavelos but it is not feasible for them to be able to invite their friends and neighbors and give rides.  About a year and a half ago we started a small group in São Marcos with these core families.  Having a small group Bible study in São Marcos creates a venue where these families can invite friends.  As Tatiana and Orlando make contacts through the salon it allows them to invite those who show interest to attend one of the two groups (we’ve recently added a group) which meet during the week.

These weekly groups will continue to meet but we wanted to bring the groups together for a combined worship service.  Our plan is to do this once a month for several months and over time we can increase the frequency.

Today was our first worship service.   There were 14 adultos and 12 children/youth that participated.  It is exciting to see what God is doing.

Afterwards several came up to Dan to ask if it we could have a weekly worship service instead of just once a month!  Great news!  People were talking about what friends/neighbors they could invite.

Praise God, keep praying and enjoy the slide show of pictures…
