The first activity of the year for the United Methodist Women and of the United Methodist Men of the STPPACE is the Post Christmas Fellowship held at the Jesus Reigns UMC, in Pila, Laguna last January 22, 2011.
Iluminada Sarmiento from Quezon UMC and mother of deaconess Beth Sarmiento – Vicente gave the meditation in the worship service.
Church women and men from both the Laguna District and Quezon District attended this event.
Usual activities and games during Christmas party were held and also the traditional exchange gifts. Present in the event are the DS of Laguna District – Rev. DS Joel Capulong and wife Julie Capulong – the annual conference lay leader and the DS of Quezon District Rev DS Joe Vicente. Pastors and deaconesses of the churches also supported the event.
The event was postponed last year and made it through this month to give way for fellowship with other church members within the conference which was the only activity where two district join together. This was the desire of the church women according to their annual conference president Shirley Valenciano.
