Fifteen years in existence is an honor and the Young People’s Guild (YPG) of the Living Waters Presbyterian Congregation at Akweteman South in Accra has used the opportunity to launch its anniversary amidst pomp and gaiety.
In a sermon, Mr. Samuel Manu of the Dome Congregation said, most groups usually focus on social and entertainment programmes during such anniversary celebrations, instead of things which will draw members closer to God. He added that groups which study the Bible do not usually incur problems because the word of God is a lamp to their feet and a light to guide their path.
According to Mr. Manu, the level of indiscipline among Christians in Ghana is so alarming and needs to be addressed. He therefore advised the youth especially, to study and abide by the Bible regularly.
The resident Catechist, Madam Dora Akunor, commended members of the Guild for the good work being done in the area through evangelism in order to increase the population of the Church. She also encouraged them to always stick together as one family whiles being conversant with the word of God for spiritual growth.
In an address, Mr. Richard Tettey Okumoah, President of the YPG, said the group intends to establish a business center and a printing press in order to generate some income and to create jobs for the youth in the Church. He said activities slated for the anniversary celebration include blood donation, a revival and all-night services.
The launching and unveiling of banner was done by Madam Rebecca Tetteh, a Presbyter and was assisted by Prophetess Abigail Asamuah. A fundraising exercise yielded GH?1,790.
