Winter Festival of Faith
Last week, Heritage College held it’s Winter Festival of Faith program (WFOF). For the whole week, our school community gathered together daily to sing praise songs, pray, and hear the word of God. We were blessed to have Pastor Daniel Maher share with our primary students and Pastor Vadim Butov with our secondary team.
The theme for the week was “My Christ Rules” and was based on Colossians 3:15 where it encourages his followers to allow God’s peace to rule in their lives. Pastor Daniel talked about King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2 and touched on topics such as; Identity, Purpose, Faith, Acceptance, and Confidence. The primary students thoroughly enjoyed the daily activities Pastor Daniel had them participate in.
Pastor Vadim shared stories of himself growing up in what was then Soviet Ukraine. He grew up an atheist but later discovered God in his search for the meaning of life. His love of study and books made him stumble across a special historical book called the Bible. At age 15, he decided to let the Lord rule over his life and he has never turned back on that decision. Pastor Vadim ended the week with a special call inviting students to let Christ rule their heart.
