1st International Youth Camp!!!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Yes Sir, we crossed the Río de la Plata and arrived at Playa Fomento, Colonia Valdense, Uruguay. It was an awesome and blessed experience. We went to the beach, ate delicious meals, played games and learned about the will of God in our lives. We studied Ephesians 3: 14 “For this reason I kneel before the Father”.

Good indeed!

Camping + teenagers = Joy

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

They say “one example will suffice to prove it”.



This picture reflects the spirit of joy and fellowship that prevailed at the teenagers’ camp, Summer 2012.

Boys and girls got to the top of the cliff to watch the sunset and a few minutes later, the moon rise from the sea: a perfect opportunity to admire the Creation of God.

Have a blessed school year!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Just as we did last year, Methodist Church Cristo Rey celebrated a special worship service to bless and pray for the children on the eve of a new school year.

Each student received a “guardapolvo”  (white long coat used as uniform at public schools) and some school supplies. But overall, they were given prayers and blessings from our ministers, who laid on their hands for the gift of the Holy Spirit on them.

We were very pleased and full of joy to receive in our congregation brothers and sisters from the Methodist Church at Villa Ballester who decided to join Cristo Rey Congregation in order to work together in mission. We will join our forces and skills to serve the Lord not only at Belgrano but at Villa Ballester as well.

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Last Good Friday, April 6th, 2012, the people from Cristo Rey Methodist Church in Belgrano offered the neighborhood a representation of the “Via Crucis” at Saavedra Park. A number of people who were enjoying a leisure day on Easter weekend were invited to remind the events that lead to the crucifixion of Jesus.

In order to celebrate May 25th national celebration, we had a great party and a “locro”, cooked by José Zelaya, José Díaz, Eduardo Coronel and Miguel Rodríguez.

The Choir “Cantares del Alma”, directed by Maestro Vabio Valente, who offered a varied repertoir, that included tango and folklore.

Around 140 people enjoyed the concert and the “locro” stew and “pastelitos”, traditional Argentine meals.

Baptisms and the visit of Bishop De Nully Brown, what a celebration at Cristo Rey!

The Feast of Pentecost was fully celebrated: Bishop De Nully Brown visited us and we celebrated the baptisms of three young people who decided to follow Jesus Christ.

As never before, 160 people were gathered to praise the Lord and partake the Holy Communion.


Great stew (locro) for the neighborhood at Villa Ballester

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

We had a great time celebrating Flag’s Day (June 20th) at Villa Ballester.

Almost 70 people enjoyed a wonderful time! We shared “locro”, cooked by Paul, Claudia and Marcelo Horisberger. We played games and sang songs! There were seven different games we could play and check our skills…

More than 100 persons tasted the “locro”. It was a sunny day and we had a great time playing, chatting and getting to know each other. This way, the congregation at the Methodist Church in Villa Ballester opened their doors to the community.

Thank you Lord, for your love and mercy!
