The Moderator urged the congregation to ensure regular maintenance of the structure in order prolong its life span. He said, failure to have regular maintenance would derail all the toil and sweat of the donors.
Preaching the Sermon, the Chairperson of the Asante Presbytery Rev Benson Sarfo Kantanka urged Christians to have faith in God so that they could please him.

Rev Sarfo Kantanka noted that the church has been given the power to transform society for the best which could only be accomplished if Christians followed the footsteps of Christ, despite the challenges.
