A one-week programme of activities organised by the Children’s Ministry of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), Hope Congregation, Sakumono-Estates, Tema has been climaxed with a thanksgiving service.
The programme, held on Sunday, February 18, 2018 with the theme, “Let the earth hear. The child, A witness for Christ” saw some members of the Children’s Service leading the main services by way of Liturgy, Bible Reading, Announcements, and delivery of the sermon.
Ms Yaa Asantewaa Boafoa Boafo, a member of the Children Service in a sermon charged parents and guardians to set good examples and make sure that their wards do not join the company of peers, who will make them adopt bad habits.
She also reminded parents that The Great Commission, a personal directive from Jesus Christ to all His followers to take the gospel to every person throughout the world and to make disciples in all nations also involves children. Therefore, parents must support their children to evangelise and spread the gospel to their peers be it at school or the neighborhood.
She encouraged children to participate in evangelism by inviting people to come to church. “Let the earth hear that Jesus is the Saviour of the world,” she said.
The Sakumono District Minister of the PCG, Rev. Emmanuel Obeng Ntow commended the children’s service teachers for their commitment and devotion in training the children to become morally, spiritually and emotionally upright in the church and the society.
He called for support for the teachers in order for them to train the young ones to emulate christ so that they will grow to be responsible adults to move the country forward in God’s direction.
“When you bring up the child in the fear of the Lord, you will have peace,” He said.
Highlight of the thanksgiving service was a memory verse recitals, and a dance choreography staged by the members of the Children’s Service. The Children’s Service choir also treated the congregants to some melodious songs.
