The Uro Assembly Community Based Church Building (CBCB) in Kalba District of Sawla Area of The Church of Pentecost has been completed and dedicated to the glory of God.
The 120-seating capacity church building was dedicated by the Sawla Area Head, Pastor William Ohemeng-Kwakye, assisted by the District Minister, Overseer Lord Awuku, on Friday, November 3, 2017.
The assembly was established in 2005 and has since worshipped in classroom till the year 2015 when a parcel of land was acquired to build the church building. The sod cutting to commence the project was done in February 2017 by the immediate past Area Head, Apostle Moses K. Ahiakor.
Delivering the sermon at the service on the topic, "You are the Temple of God," Overseer Emmanuel Mensah of Soma District quoted from 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, and stated that Christians are the temple of God within which God dwells.
He said that church building is a place Christians meet to have fellowship, hear the word of God and pray. “Faith increases as we hear the word of God and failure to be in the temple of God means one is disassociating himself or herself from the family of God,” he stressed, as he quoted from Acts 2:46-47.
He added that in as much as the building is expected to be clean always, so is the Christian expected by God to be clean (pure and holy) without any blemishes. “The Christian must be a person who God can trust with His gift, talent and riches. Therefore, it is expected that as temples of God we honour God with our bodies because Christ bought the believer with a price which cost His death,” he added.
Present at the dedication ceremony were some ministers and their wives in the Area as well as officers of the Kalba District and members of the church. Also in attendance were a representative of the chief, the wife of the local chief, among others.
Meanwhile, the Area Head has cut the sod to commence the construction of the Bakaayiri Community Based Church Building.
