Moderator Dedicates Chapel at Akyem Asene
The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) has dedicated a chapel for Ebenezer Congregation at Akyem Asene in the West Akyem Presbytery of the PCG.
The chapel construction started in 1999 under the leadership of the then District Minister who is coincidentally, the current Chairperson Rev. Dr. B. I. Adu-Okoree.
The Moderator in a statement called on members of the boys and girls brigade to re-orient themselves with the philosophy of Presbyterian educational system. He asked them to train their head for knowledge, hearts for the gospel and hands with skills.
He said he was not happy with the phenomenon of the brigade members after presenting the colors would loiter around the chapel without sitting down to hear the gospel.
The Moderator urged the session to ensure constant a culture of maintenance in order to ensure he longer life span of the building.
Preaching the sermon on theme “Christ Accepts all” Rev. Dr. B. I. Adu-Okoree expressed appreciations to a long list of persons and groups which have contributed to the construction of the Chapel. He prayed that it will be the place where the face of God would be sought and would be a place of refuge.
He added that Christ taught that we should be His disciples. To make disciples, we would need to accept everyone just as Christ accepted all – poor, rich, lepers, men and women. The rule for accepting all is to love one another. To love one another means not being selective to the people we offer goodwill to. A beautiful chapel without Church members showing love among themselves and the community is incomplete
Appreciation plaques were presented to some personalities. Special appreciation was exposed to Abenase Dabenhene, Nana Nkansah Ackom for his generous contributions.
In attendance at the Service were several Ministers affiliated with the Ebenezer Congregation, Ministers of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and other Churches in Asene. There were also traditional leaders, politicians and people from all walks of life.
