A little about Our Christian Community

Our History
____________

The group started somewhere in 2010 a year after Seth and Bryan’s first Holy Communion and it was then called CNC 500 (Christian neighbourhood community) not officially registered with our parish till much later.

About a year or two later the name was changed to CNC 500 LTW to distinguish ourselves from the rest of the CNC 500 groups.

The main focus of the group was to build up our faith as a small group and to support one another in our faith journey.

Three main families made up the group (Juan’s, Irene’s and ours) with one or two more joining us occasionally. (Grace’s and Johana’s)

When we first started it was definitely a struggle because none of us at that time was well versed in scripture nor did we know each other very well. Moreover we all had our own busy schedules to keep. But the Lord kept us together and we saw the spiritual growth and love for one another.

Soon it was time to invite a few more but only a handful responded.Two or three who did respond stuck with us as the months passed because they too started experiencing the joy of our Lord present with His community. John one of our avid members felt prompted to start his own group which he did successfully.Still he finds time to join his LTW family whenever he is able to.

As we all journeyed on together we felt the love between all of us grow as the group sharings too became very personal.The sharing of our joys, sorrows, difficulties and personal testimonies of how our Lord has touched us in our lives; help our faith grow exponentially.

It is with this faith and desire to grow deeper in every aspect that it was time as a group to be more inclusive and inviting. We could not remain or be seen as exclusive if we truly wanted to be disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.

And that is how we have become what we are today. A SCC (small Christian community) striving to daily live the word of God.By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ we will continue to grow and lead one another closer towards our heavenly inheritance.

Our Mission And Prayer
_______________________

We are many parts with many gifts and talents but One Body in Christ Jesus our Lord. We live not for ourselves but for one another with full knowledge that there is no communion without sacrifice. God our Father’s love for us is such that He Wills the good in us. So too do we live and love in that same manner, willing the good in others. We are a family striving each day to live the Word of God our Father in our daily lives. We encourage and support one another knowing that our Lord Jesus is with us every step of the way. His peace, love mercy and grace is upon us. Now and forever. Amen
