On Dec. 3, a group of eight Children’s Church workers from City Harvest Church conducted a surprise children’s Christmas party at GPDI Lippo Cikarang, in Jakarta, Indonesia. This Indonesian church is an affiliate of CHC and is pastured by Daniel Martono, a graduate from CHC’s School of Theology. Together with his children’s church pastor, the CHCC team reached out to hundreds of children in public schools in the Lippo Cikarang district. Their efforts paid off when 2,321 children and 1,208 adults showed up at the party. This is the largest number of people the children’s ministry had ever had.
The CHCC team got down to work by getting the children involved in exciting games and interactive activities, followed by a time of praise to God. There was also a special performance by jugglers Kit and Kai, whose antics made the children laugh.
The day ended with a meaningful Bible story about the power of love, which reminded the children that they have a heavenly Father who loves them and will never give up on them.
CHCC volunteer, Bob Tham, shared his thoughts, “Through this trip, I learned that we should always give our best every time we serve, because you never know if this is the only time that a child will get to hear the gospel being preached.”
