A Night of Choral Music

The Lead Apostle was full of praise for all choristers for their sacrifices and the joyful heart from which they sang. He wished them the blessings of God.
In his Christmas message, the Lead Apostle used Proverbs 4:25, “Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you”, to advise members to look up to God alone in all their endeavours so that we can reach our heavenly goal. He said our hearts follow the direction of our eyes therefore we should be mindful about what we set our eyes on. He admonished members to set their eyes on heavenly treasures for Jesus said, ‘wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be also’. “If we focus only on the earthly things, we will lose.
Also in attendance were Apostle Annum Nortey of Konongo area and Apostle Amos Osei-Du of Kumasi Area.
God’s Mercy Endures Forever
Lead Apostle Oppong-Brenya conducted a united District Service the following day, 25th December 2019 at Kumasi Central Church. He was assisted by Apostle Amos Osei- Du , Shepherd Agyemang (Old Tafo Congregation ) and Shepherd Ofori (from Lake Area).

In summary, the Lead Apostle said, “Our heavenly Father knows all of us and loves us all and He is the father of all. In the past were like fools- not believing in God, thinking all creations came by themselves. We didn’t believe that every good and every perfect gift comes from God. We are no longer fools because we believe in Jesus Christ.”
“Let us not boast about our works in the house of God, for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Let us all remain united and work together in the work of God.”
