The Anyaa District of The Church of Pentecost organised an appreciation service in honour of the 75 Children’s Ministry workers (Sunday School teachers) in the district.
The event, according to the District Minister, Pastor Emmanuel Teye Sackitey, was organised to commend the children’s workers for their dedicated service towards the spiritual growth and holistic development of children in the district.
“It is common knowledge that among the hardly appreciated people in churches are Sunday School Teachers. Whilst some see them as a nuisance to mainline adult service, others consider their services as the least important,” he observed.
He advised Church leaders to regard the services of Children workers as indispensable to the growth and development of the body of Christ in this undulating world, where the love of many is growing cold.
“The role of Children’s Ministry Workers is critical in the Possessing the Nation agenda,” he added.
Pastor Sackitey, therefore, praised the Children’s Ministry workers for the good work they are doing such as paying regular visits to children in their homes and schools, holding prayer meetings with children, training children during ministry week celebrations, etc.
Pastor Sackitey advised Children’s Ministry workers never to expect any pecuniary reward in discharging their duties, but to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that their labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the teachers, the District Children’s Ministry Leader, Elder David Agyemang, said that they were completely overwhelmed by the gesture of the Church leadership and pledged their commitment to the service of the Children’s Ministry.
An amount of GHȼ8,354.50 raised from the six local assemblies in the district was shared among all 75 Children’s Ministry workers.
