WEEKLY CHURCH SERVICES
Our churches are filled with weekly activities. The Lord's Day service (Sunday) focuses on:
Songs of Praise to the Lord
Teaching and Preaching
The teaching of the Word of God has been inspiring, dynamic, and biblical; indeed, our focus is the gospel; - "… that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Cor. 15:3-5). The joy is God, who reconciled us unto Himself in Christ, and has entrusted us with the gospel of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:17-20).
In addition to this, our churches also conduct a worship service on either Wednesday or Thursday evening which is similar to the Sunday morning service. Also, we conduct Wednesday and Friday prayer meetings from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in most of our churches, and these meetings are well attended.
Some of the churches meet weekly on either Friday or Saturday for all-night prayer time. Each of the local churches have "praying mothers" whose responsibilities are to be prayer warriors for their churches. They also visit and pray with the sick and shut-in members. God is answering prayers: Sally John, a member, had her sight restored as the result of the weekly prayer meeting. One of our dependants, Patience, was also healed from a sickness which was believed to be the result of witchcraft. We believed it was witchcraft because, Patience reported that something jumped on her left hand while playing with her peers in the yard, and no one saw the "thing" that jumped on her hand. That's one of the ways witchcraft can operate in Africa. She immediately fell on the ground, convulsing. At this time Pastor Prince Bantoe was in the house; he came out and prayed fervently to God for her healing. She also was taken to the weekly prayer group and they prayed for her. These are examples of how the Lord is blessing many people as a result of the persistent prayers of the believers. Thank You, Lord!
