Church Services Wanica
For residents of the house Jolan Gaaikema holds weekly church services and it goes without saying that people and neighborhood children are welcome. Easter 2014 we held a baptism service at the river in Klaas Creek. Each was baptized after writing and reading of a self-made creed. Meanwhile, we have our foundation two dance groups and dance groups that perform regularly in our church services. At our services we take into account our audience and so are our church family friendly and provide the most services children a special contribution. During the holidays, the services are stopped just because our house is fairly empty, but from the beginning of October we again hold them every Sunday at 15:00. After the service there are sweets and drinks and an opportunity to play games with each other. Church services Wanica.
In 2013 there was also a theological course held in New Nickerie, where students thought about their vocation and about their future. The leadership of this lies with Ds. Jolan Gaaikema. At each course meeting the participants also did exercises in preaching in public. There was also emphasis on exegesis Old Testament and New Testament exegesis, the course was held once a month during the weekend, where the classes were held both Friday and Saturday. There was a lot of self-study, because students were given various assignments. At the course were also other items on the agenda such as the different religions in Suriname and each weekend the service was also held by the students themselves, each had its own task. Considerable attention was also paid to the content and critically listening to each other. The course lasted for several weekends. It was actually planned to get together more weekends, but also students have gained a lot of knowledge with these deep weekends.
