Kintampo Area Donates Infrared Thermometers To Districts As Churches Reopen

The Kintampo Area of The Church of Pentecost has donated infrared thermometers (Thermometer Guns) to all the eighteen (18) districts in the Area to enable them to comply with the guidelines for the reopening churches for services.

The presentation was done on Friday, 19th June 2020 at the Kintampo Newtown Central Assembly during the Area’s pastorate prayer meeting. In all, twenty (20) infrared thermometers were purchased by the Area at a cost of GH¢9,000.00.

It must be noted that, as part of the protocols put in place for the re-opening of churches, the government has directed that every member undergoes a temperature screening before they are allowed to take part in the service as of efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. The donation of the thermometer guns is, therefore, meant to equip the various districts to meet the said requirements.

According to the Area Head, Apostle Gideon Obeng-Darko Debrah, the Area has also supplied 500 hand sanitisers and nose masks to some officers and members in the Area at a cost of over GH¢ 3,000.00.

He encouraged the districts to acquire more of the temperature-measuring devices in order to fully comply with the COVID-19 protocols outlined by the government.

He also advised ministers to ensure that all the necessary protocols are observed before, during and after church services. A health professional was invited to the meeting to take the ministers through the use of the thermometers.

Considered as an internal mission area of the church, most of the districts in the Kintampo Area were having challenges in acquiring the thermometer guns to facilitate the reopening of their churches. The gesture was thus a major relief for the ministers.

Pastor Cephas Boatey, the Chairman for the Area COVID-19 Committee (Task Force) on behalf of the pastorate expressed profound appreciation to the leadership of the Area for the timely intervention. He assured that the Committee would ensure that the various districts in the Area observe all protocols to the letter, especially during church services.
