It was Sunday morning 14th August 2022. At a quarter to ten, Sunday School had already started with Sister Flora Lartey teaching the topic “Abraham and Isaac”.
At the auditorium, the members were flocking in, family by family. At five past ten, divine service had started with Shepherd Kwapong, the Congregational Rector.
The text word was taken from Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.’”
The congregation followed up the text word by singing the hymn ‘The Bridegroom comes remember His word! Watch ye redeemed, watch with hearts bestirred....’
In his opening address, the Rector reminded the congregation to recognise God's call and present themselves to Him as faithful servants. He said mankind fell from God's grace through sin but through grace in Christ, mankind can be saved. He added that:
· Christ has sent His Apostles to prepare souls for His coming
· Through loving and caring for our fellow man - care for the orphan, the poor and the widow, one would be a good disciple for Christ.
· Signs of His coming - the Rector used the "The ten Bridegrooms, the parable of the Talents " to buttress the points that everyone should be ready to meet the Lord.
Concluding, he said the members should assume the responsibility as having been strengthened by the Lord through His words, endeavour to help others and the Lord will reward and bless them.
He was assisted by Community Evangelist Mingle, Priests Kankam Otchere and Paul.
Two visitors from South Africa and Sierra Leone were introduced to the congregation.
At the Sunday school, the teacher continued with her children after the divine service.
A lady by name Doris Akofa Mensah, who was recently confirmed, presented herself to assist Sister Flora, the Sunday school teacher. Bishop Ampadu was very grateful to her and encouraged her to learn from the teacher who is about completing the seminar on Sunday School.
