The Church of Gavar

Our first ministry with children was on May 22, 2003, when, by the grace of God, we held a VBS and got acquainted not only with the children but also with their parents. We gradually made friends with them and started to visit their families. We have visited both the individuals and the families for a year, doing what was possible to spread the truths of the Gospel.
In the summer of 2004 we again had a VBS. During 3 days, almost 130 children actively participated in a number of interesting events. During the same summer, 25 children stayed in one of the Arzni rest homes for a week. We continued our ministry with the children even when VBS was over. We started a Good News Club with 35 children. Furthermore, in the same area we started spiritual meetings for the adults.
In May 2006, we acquired a church building by the grace of God.
Now we have worship services and prayer services on Thursdays and on Sundays. Once every two weeks we also have a Good News Club for children.

During the summer of 2006, English lessons were provided at the church by a visiting teacher for both children and teenagers, with a Bible lesson in Armenian following each English lesson.The leader of the church of Gavar is brother Avetik.
