Our Mission: We are servants of God by serving others. We share a responsibility to bring God's love to hurting people. We are a Christian outreach fellowship of believers dedicated to showing the people of the Yucatan Peninsula, through our teaching, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.

“The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed” Hudson Taylor

As we have discussed, this week’s service will start at 9:30 AM featuring Christmas music by Ernesto Cortazar II. Ernesto Cortazar II (1940–2004) was a contemporary classical composer and pianist. He started his music career in Mexico at the age of 18 composing the background music for the motion picture La Risa de la Ciudad. Since then, he has composed background music for more than 500 motion pictures. He also gained notoriety by topping the popularity on - a leading music-sharing service, popular with independent musicians for promoting their work. He traveled to more than 25 countries to perform. In 2001, Ernesto moved from Los Angeles to Tampico, Mexico to live his last years near his family, where he died in 2004. His music legacy is continued by his two sons, Ernesto Cortazar III and Edgar Cortazar, who are successful songwriters in the Latin market. We promise you will enjoy the pre-church music so come early, relax and enjoy Christmas Day with us.

We have added a new page to our website and we feel you will find the information enjoyable. To view the page, please click on the link below:

Ed Young will be providing this week’s Sunday service lesson on “The True Miracle of Christmas”. It will be a great lesson and we sincerely hope you join us on Christmas Day. This is the same Christian Day lesson that will be viewed by millions of Christians around the world.

Upcoming events:
• Christmas Eve at Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza is the best way we can think of to prepare for Christmas Day. You are all invited to join us for the activities that will begin around 8:00 PM. Be sure to bring your camera. If you plan to attend, please let us know in advance so we can give Esther a head count.
• A special Christmas Day English service is planned for our COF members and guests. Our Savior’s Birthday Celebration will begin at 9:30 AM. From 9:30 to 10:00 you will have the opportunity to visit with your friends and enjoy your favorite Christmas music. Please join us for traditional Christmas music, a great lesson and fellowship with your Cancun Christian family. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate His very special day.
