The Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost in the Sawla Area has received 2,381 copies of Children’s Bible as well as 568 pieces of children nose marks from the Children’s Ministry National Directorate of the Church.
The donation formed part of the Church’s Vision 2023 agenda of “Possessing the Nations.” It also fell in line with the vision of the Director of the Children’s Ministry, Pastor Prof William Otoo Ellis, to ensure that “every child who can read and write must own a Bible”
It was in the spirit of this vision that the leadership of the Church has secured about 20, 000 pieces of Children’s Bible to be distributed to the children in the church across the country.
Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, the Sawla Area Head, on behalf of the Children’s Ministry Directorate presented the Bibles and the nose marks to the Area Children’s Ministry Leader for onward distribution.
Speaking at the short ceremony held at the forecourt of the Area Office, Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye said that children who are the future leaders of the church, nation, and the family, are to be rooted in the word of God to guide them in this contemporary world.
He added that as Timothy was admonished by Apostle Paul to study to show himself approved, pastors and Children’s Ministry leaders are to encourage children to read the Bible to guide them in their daily lives.
He stressed that as Children’s Ministry classes (Sunday School) commences on 11th April, 2021 as directed by the Executive Council, children are to use the nose marks provided and adhere to the COVID-19 protocols.
In appreciation, Overseer Isaac Kwadwo Asare, Area Children’s Ministry Leader, thanked the Chairman of the Church, the Children’s Ministry Director, and the Area Head for the Bibles which, he said, would be bring about effective spiritual development amount the children.
