Maranatha Assembly Church Building Dedicated

Maranatha Assembly Church Building Dedicated

The Maranatha Assembly church building of the Anyaa District in the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area of The Church of Pentecost was dedicated by the Area Head, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, last Sunday. He was assisted by the Anyaa District Minister, Pastor Emmanuel Teye Sackitey. 

The beautiful edifice, which cost GHȼ574,629.97, was financed through contributions from the Church’s Head Office and Area, the District, the local assembly, and two benevolent individuals.

The Maranatha Assembly was opened on October 13, 2002 during the tenure of then Overseer Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, (now Apostle and General Secretary of the Church) as district minister. The assembly, which started with a membership of 17, currently boasts an overall membership of 523 members, made up of 106 men, 223 women and 194 children. 

Delivering a sermon titled “My House Shall be Called the House of Prayer” based on Matthew 21:13-14, Apostle A. E. K. Ekuban (Rtd.), the pioneer Head of the Anyaa-Ablekuma Area., explained that a temple of God must also serve its purpose. 

According to him, Jesus expects every church leader to make the place of worship a house of prayer. 

Apostle Ekuban noted how the early church engaged in fervent prayer and charged the leadership of the Assembly to ensure that prayer never ceases in the house of God. 

The retired minister further noted that the apostles of the early church were saturated in prayer, sustained by prayer and also moved in power. 

Concluding his message, Apostle Ekuban stated that making the temple a house of prayer is very beneficial to the Church as it drives away evil, and brings about divine healing, deliverance, and an abundance of grace and blessing.

“There are also sporadic testimonies in a praying church,” he added.

Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye, the current Anyaa-Ablekuma Area Head, in his remarks, expressed his joy at the completion and dedication of the church building project, which began some 11 years ago. 

He, therefore, commended the leadership of the district for ensuring its successful completion despite the global economic challenges. He also singled out Elder Gabriel Amoako, the Presiding Elder of the Assembly, for his selfless service and generous support towards the work.

Reflecting on what the Lord has done for the Church, the entire congregation danced their hearts out to the glory of God.
