[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]This Father’s Day was a special one at the World Mission Society Church of God in Passaic, NJ. Wanting to show their fathers appreciation for their love and sacrifice, the members all came together to create the perfect sports event. Passaic is a city with a large Latin American community and with the World Cup taking place, it was the perfect way to bring dads and families together to watch the game and celebrate.

The families enjoyed the Colombia versus Peru game and then some participated in their own sports competitions – a game of ping pong while others played soccer.

The members decorated a space to make the dads comfortable, even featuring a photo booth for families to take memorable pictures.

Being moved by the member’s warm greetings and bright smiles, many studied the bible and gave thanks to God for the event. “Today I shared (a special moment) with my dad watching the game and played soccer together. It made me reminisce of the times we shared in my youth. I’m very thankful for this event being that I myself will be a father soon. Thank you so much,” said one of the guests.
