The resident choir for Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) – Sakumono, Life Impact, has held its annual musical concert dubbed ‘Life Praise.’ The event, which took place on December 26, 2020, at the church’s auditorium, was on the theme, “Unceasing Praise” based on Psalm 104:33.
Life Impact choir ministered inspiring local and foreign songs to the admiration of the audience. Other artistes that featured were Minister Kofi Owusu Peprah, Efe Grace, and Life Theatre.
In a welcome address, the Presiding Elder of the church, Elder Michael Ofosu Ampadu, acknowledged God for His grace and mercies towards members of the choir as well as the entire congregation during the year.
He was also full of praise for the organizers of the event for a job well done.
In an exhortation, the Resident Minister, Pastor Anthony Owusu Sekyere Kwarteng, stated that Jesus Christ is the joy and celebration of Christians during Christmas. According to him, even though Christ was born in Bethlehem, spiritually Christians experience him being born in them. He added: “Christ is no longer a baby in a manger but seated at the right hand of God.”
Pastor Kwarteng indicated that Jesus Christ should be the focus of Christian worship and that Christmas is centered on Christ Jesus’ birth as well as worshipping and praising God. He stated: “Praising and worshipping God is a spiritual experience and you deceive yourself if you fail to fulfill such activity.”
Pastor Kwarteng encouraged Christians to let worship and praises be their lifestyle, saying, “Your praise should be more purposeful if you have experienced God as Lord and personal saviour.”
Elder Joseph Samuel Aggrey, the Planning Committee Chairman of the event, was grateful to God for the successful outcome of the programme. “It’s been awesome, and the presence of God was felt greatly,” he said, adding, “We trusted God for a spiritual and conducive atmosphere, and he granted it to us. May His name be praised.”
The event had church members as well as guests from other churches in the vicinity attending – singing and dancing their hearts out.
