Diamond City Worship Centre in the Kasoa Area of The Church of Pentecost climaxed this year’s National Children’s Ministry Week celebration for 26 teens who have successfully graduated from the Children’s Ministry to the Youth Ministry.
Their initiation rites for the transitioning process included water baptism, learning the tenets of the Church of Pentecost, and a special Holy Ghost baptism session.
In a sermon themed: “Building the Foundation of the Local Church for Maximum Impact,” Miss Akosua Nhyira Frimpong drew inspiration from Psalm 11:3 and encouraged believers to pray as one of the ways of building a solid foundation.
Her sermon shed light on the essential elements of preserving a righteous foundation.
She also emphasised that prayer and the study of Scripture should be constant and unceasing practices for every believer, forming the bedrock of their faith journey.
The Resident Minister, Pastor Emmanuel Awudi, in a brief remark, congratulated the graduands and encouraged them to be active members of the Youth Ministry to enable them to build on the foundations they have already laid through the Children’s Ministry.
Five parents, who accompanied their wards to the ceremony, gave their lives to Christ during the service.
