I’m a Christian but I don’t confine myself in one religion. I believe that what’s important is my personal relationship with God. Although my family attends worship services at the United Methodist Church, I also try to explore different churches once in a while. One of the churches that made me wow is the Church of God (COG) Dasmarinas. You’ll be amazed to see that there are so much things to do at Church of God Dasmarinas.
1. Attend the Sunday Worship Service
Who would have thought that a church with three people can multiply into thousands of people? Church of God now provides eight worship services every Sunday. Here are the schedule: 5:30 am, 7:30 am, 9:30 am, 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, 3:30 pm, 5:30 pm, and 7:30 pm. In addition, they also have midweek service every Wednesday (7 pm). They have dawn watch service from Monday to Friday (5 am).
2. Exercise at the Persion Gym
You heard it right. Church of God has a gym! It’s called “Persion: Perspire with a Mission”. They have state of the art equipment. They also have gym instructors. These people are also member of the church. They can make a fitness program for you at an affordable price.
3. Relax at the Sauna
If you got surprised at the gym, I bet you also got excited when you heard about sauna. Going to sauna is one of my favorite things to do in Korea. At COG, you can enjoy unlimited sauna for just 1,600 pesos a month.
4. Join the Dance Classes
COG also have a dance studio where their dance ministry have rehearsals. If they don’t have a practice, the dance studio is open for dance classes.
5. Play at the Game Room
While the parents are busy at the gym, kids and kids at heart can play at the game room. They have billiards, table tennis, and soccer table arcade. Did I mention that they also have Xbox?
6. Eat some snacks at iCafe
I tried all their pastries and drinks to figure out which is the best. For drinks, I love the Coffee Jelly, Mango Tango, and Dark Chocolate. For cakes, I would say that the OREO CHEESECAKE is the best. I also like the Blueberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse and Tiramisu. Check out their full menu here.
“In every cup you drink, you build a church.” The proceeds of iCafe was able to built up some churches in provinces of the Philippines. It’s not just a typical coffee shop. It’s where church members hang out and even have bible studies after the worship service.
This list is still incomplete. There are more things to do inside the church. They have classrooms, conference room, photography studio and many more amenities. I’m going to update this real soon.
