Application of Cultivate & Care in Cluster 2’s Activities:
Cultivate. The true meaning of the word “Cultivate” is to prepare oneself for a specific use or learning to achieve a certain goal. It is to foster the growth of deepening our understanding of the “Words” of the Gospel through our doctrinal studies. The ministry also joins hands with various missions in our church such as medical and dental missions, bible studies and visitations, among others.
Under this ministry, we are nurturing each member in the doctrinal studies of the church – ongoing of which is the Heidelberg doctrinal study which is being held every first and third Friday of the month and is being facilitated by Elder Chito Poblete.
Our mission is to evangelize and spread God’s words to every member of this cluster and to encourage more people to join us. Our end goal is to create small bible study groups to share the Gospel so as to glorify God by preaching His holy word to others.

Care (Tulong Dunong). The Lord said in Galatians 6:10, “let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers”. This led to Cluster 2’s Care Group creation of “Tulong Dunong” that aims to help those who are passionate in their studies but are financially lacking.
To date, the group has one (1) scholar this first semester, SY 2018-2019, receiving her everyday “baon” once a week while a group member talks to her about her studies and tries to guide her in her church life. The “baon” given to her comes from the Cluster 2 members who made pledges during the Cluster’s Quarterly Fellowship last April when the “Tulong Dunong” was introduced. The members who made pledges remained true to their promises; hence, a scholar was taken and chosen from the list of members.
It is the hope of the group to be able to add another scholar and to see and finance her/him through college. It is also our prayer to be financially able to defray all expenses that will be incurred by the scholars especially graduation fees, and see the Cluster 2’s mission/vision come to fruition.
Also, the group continues to encourage its other members to touch someone’s life and make a difference.
If you want to be a part of this noble endeavor, please get in touch with any member of the Care group of Cluster 2 composed of Sis. Grace Orongan, Sis. Alma Caminade, Bro. Mario and Sis. Girlie Dizon and Sis. Kamea Dilao. To God be the glory!
