The altar decoration for the Thanksgiving service
11 December 2020

The Sunyani Apostle Working Area celebrated their 2020 Thanksgiving Service on 29th November 2020. Accordingly, Apostle Moses Otchere celebrated this special service together with some 230 members and children of the Sunyani Central Church congregation.

The Apostle based the service on the text word 2 Corinthians 9:7, “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Apostle Moses Otchere began his sermon by encouraging the congregation not to assume that God does not love us hence releasing this novel pandemic on us. God still cares about about us, he said. And this is not the form of punishment prepared by God for mankind.

The Working Area leader continued to encourage the congregants to passionately give from their hearts onto God. God loves a cheerful giver, he said. And thus, we reap from whatever we sow hence we must give our offertory to the Lord willingly without any doubt and or regret. This will help us receive enormous blessings from the Lord. The Apostle cited the example of Cain and Abel in their respective offertories to God. He reiterates that because Abel willingly offered his gifts on to the Lord from his heart, the Good Lord accepted it. The opposite was what Cain exhibited, hence a total rejection of his offertory by God.  

Apostle Otchere in concluding, emphasized the blessings one receives by giving willingly on to the Lord. He says giving to the Lord wholeheartedly re-affirms your appreciation towards God for His continuous love and blessings towards you and your entire family.

The service was assisted by District Elder Tornu, Patrick Konadu and Shepherd Nyame.
