The English Assembly in the Kintampo Newtown District of The Church of Pentecost has organised a praise and worship festival dubbed “Pent Praiz ’20.’”
The annual programme which took place on the evening of Sunday, December 27, 2020, at the church auditorium, was aimed at appreciating God’s loving-kindness towards His people throughout the year.
The District Minister, Pastor Akwasi Amponsah, in an exhortation highlighted on the goodness of God. Using Psalms 100:1-5 as his main text, he mentioned that the year 2020 was very challenging and difficult for the church in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that despite all that the Lord has been good to His church.
Pastor Amponsah admonished Christians to cultivate a heart of appreciation and thanksgiving to God for His goodness and faithfulness no matter the challenges and difficulties that confront them.
The Presiding Elder, Dr Dennis Adu-Gyasi, in an interview explained that the brain behind the programme was to worship and praise God with Pentecostal songs.
He added that The Church of Pentecost has been blessed with so many spirit-filled songs which have been documented into a songs book. “It, therefore, dawned on the leadership of the choir to oragnise this programme and to bring to light the rich Pentecostal songs, hence the name ‘Pent Praiz,’” he stressed.
The host choir thrilled the congregation with some spirit-filled Pentecostal songs which kept them on their feet amidst singing and dancing. The Kyeremankoma District Mass Choir and Sister Dianah Ankrah also ministered at the event.
In attendance were Mrs Barbara Owusu Amponsah (wife of Kintampo Newtown District Minister), Mrs Barbara Ababio (wife of Jema Nkwanta District Minister), among others.
