The newly-constructed church building of the Downtown Assembly in the Downtown District of The Church of Pentecost was dedicated on Sunday, July 9, 2023, to the glory of God.
Apostle Dr. Benjamin Ali, the Area Head for the Downtown-Ofaakor Area of the Church, dedicated the church building with assistance from Pastor Andrews Owusu (Downtown District Minister), Pastor Kwasi Afoakwah (Area Secretary), and some ministers in the Area.
The edifice, which began construction in 2009, cost the church GHS 817,000.00. It is also worth noting that Honorable Mavis Hawa Koomson, the Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya East, supported the project with GHS 25,000.00.
Delivering a brief sermon on the topic, “The Building Speaks,” with key scriptures from Ecclesiastes 9:10 and Ephesians 2:10, Apostle Samuel Otu-Appiah encouraged the members to be partakers in building God’s church.
“The building speaks of both the past and the present; therefore, invest in His church building,” he stated.
Gracing the occasion were Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomson and Hon. Anita Obo Amissah (Municipal Chief Executive for Awutu Senya East) and their entourage.
Present also were Mrs. Mary Ali (wife of the Downtown-Ofaakor Area Head), Mrs. Gifty Dansoah Appiah (wife of the Winneba Area Head), Mrs. Faustina Owusu (wife of the Downtown District), as well as some ministers’ wives, and officers in and outside the Area.
