The Children’s Ministry of Darkuman English Assembly (DEA) of The Church of Pentecost celebrated Ghana’s culture and heritage with a month-long campaign in March, dubbed the “Heritage and Culture Month Celebration.”
Throughout the month, the ministry taught the children about the history of the Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and Ghana, and gave presentations on the 16 regions, the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and showcased some locally-made products.
The month-long celebration, which spanned four Sundays, was officially launched by the Local Children’s Ministry Leader, Deaconess Sheila A. Williams, at a special ceremony.
During the launch, she outlined the activities for the Heritage and Culture month and emphasised the importance of learning, appreciating, and celebrating Ghanaian culture.
According to her, the month of March was chosen to commemorate Ghana’s heritage because it coincided with the country’s day of independence [March 6], and therefore served as a great opportunity to showcase some locally-made products.
Deacon Enock Anim-Asante, the District Children’s Ministry Leader, commended the leadership of the ministry for this laudable initiative and encouraged other local assemblies in the district to follow suit.
As part of the celebration, both children and teachers wore indigenous and cultural attire to Sunday school to teach the children about the various cultures in the country.
