Sunday, July 30, 2023, was a historic day for members of the Central Assembly of the Apam District in the Winneba Area of The Church of Pentecost as they witnessed the long-awaited dedication of their church building.
The church building project, which has taken some 38 years to complete, has been aptly named “McKeown Temple” after the founder and first Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor James McKeown.
The colourful dedication service for the edifice was officiated by the Winneba Area Head, Apostle Samuel Otu Appiah, with assistance from the Apam District Minister, Pastor Bismarck Aidan.
In attendance were Mrs. Gifty Dansoah Appiah (Wife of the Area Head), Hon. Richard Gyan Mensah (MP for Gomoa West), Pastor T. K. Tandoh (Rtd.) and his wife, and Mrs. Diana Ofori Atta (Rtd.).
During the ceremony, Pastor Emmanuel Foster Asamoah, the Abasraba District Minister, delivered an exhortation on the topic “House of Prayer,” drawing references from Isaiah 56:7 and 1 Kings 8:28-52 in the Bible.
In his message, he emphasised the significance of the temple as a place of fellowship with God and urged everyone, especially Christians, to avoid actions that would distance them from the temple.
The event was also graced by the representative of the Chief of Apam, the Winneba Area pastorate and their wives, as well as members of the Winneba Area Executive Committee.
