The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Redemption Congregation, has honored its long-serving members who have demonstrated unwavering commitment and service to the church over the years.

The event, which was attended by the congregation’s leadership and members, was an opportunity to publicly applaud these individuals for their invaluable contributions to the growth and development of the church.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Reverend in charge of the Redemption Congregation praised the honorees for their exemplary dedication and selfless service. “These men and women have been the backbone of our church, offering their time, talents, and resources to ensure that the work of the Lord continues to thrive in our community,” he said.

The honored members were recognized for their active participation in various church activities, including teaching Sunday school, leading youth programs, serving on church committees, and volunteering in community outreach initiatives. Each recipient was presented with a certificate of appreciation and a small token of the congregation’s gratitude.

The Reverend expressed the hope that the recognition of these long-serving members would inspire the rest of the congregation to emulate their example and continue to serve the church with the same level of passion and commitment.

“Our church is blessed to have such devoted individuals who have selflessly given of themselves to ensure that the light of the Gospel continues to shine brightly in our community,” he said. “This ceremony is a testament to their unwavering faith and a reminder to all of us to rededicate ourselves to the service of the Lord.”

The event was hailed as a meaningful and uplifting celebration that underscored the importance of recognizing and honoring the contributions of faithful church members.

“We thank God for this day, our main purpose as Christians is to abide by the will of God, hence the theme of today’s sermon Chosen to Serve Christ, technically, we are not serving Christ but we are supposed to help uplift ourselves and improve our standard of living.

“We honored some members of our church today, the truth is the begging of the Redemption Congregation was very challenging, we started with only 8 congregants and were even holding our church service in a classroom but these members stood with the church during our difficult time and thanks to their hard work, we now have over 250 members.’’

He continued, “we are not doing this to pay them but rather to encourage them to continue with their good deeds and also motivate others  emulate them.” Catechist Daniel Okrah, told our reporter. 

The awardees got a citation, certificate and undisclosed amount of money for their good deeds towards the church and kingdom of God.
