Our Monthly District Gatherings

The last Sunday of each month at 3:00 in the afternoon, all the Nazarene Churches that are located in Port Vila gather together at one of the four locations to worship the Lord and fellowship together.  It is always a great time!  Our churches are fairly small, but when we get together we pack out the place!

At the end of June, Women's Ministries was responsible to lead the district gathering at the Black Sand Church.  The two district leaders met with Jenny Isaac and Sylvia to plan the program together and decided that each of the congregations would help to present a drama based on Acts 9:32-43, the story of Peter raising Tabitha (Dorcas) to life.  Metas had prepared a wonderful devotional from the story and each congregation provided ladies to act different parts of the story.  Black Sand Church provided Tabitha and the ladies who were attending to her when she died.  Vila North Church provided the mourners.  Prima Church had the part of the ones who ran to get Peter, and Eluklom Church provided someone to play the part of Peter.  It all came together beautifully! The ladies did such a good job of acting during the mourning part of the drama, that some in the congregation thought someone had actually died!
