By the recommendation of Rev. Dr. Samuel Arhin, a true friend and supporter of Ghana Calvary Methodist Church, we embarked on organizing our first Annual Harvest and Thanksgiving Service. It was four weeks before Christmas therefore we were left with three weeks to plan something.
Only God knows how that could be possible, but with faith and prayers, led by Pastor Nathan, a committee was quickly formed headed by Brother Brefo. Members willingly started pledging in thousands to support the harvest.
A week of teaching and prayers was set aside prior to the harvest day. Speakers were Rev. Dr. Samuel A. Arhin, Pastor Martinson Sarfo and Pastor Nathan, the host. The Harvest service was on December 17th, 2006; the service was spirit-filled as members genuinely expressed their faith and gratitude to God through giving; singing and dancing abounded.
The sermon, “Of Nose-Ring and Bracelets” based on Genesis 24:10-33 was delivered by Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Obiri Addo, senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Irvington.
This idea came to be as we saw the fruitfulness of our joint-labor in Christ. The church therefore decided to reward the members for their commitment and hard work.
On Saturday, December 30, 2006, we met together again, invited friends and loved ones to join us celebrate Christmas and thank the Lord for the good things He has done for us. There was more than enough food to eat; the place was charged with music and dancing.
All thanks go to the Almighty God, through His Son Jesus Christ our Savior and the Power of the Holy Spirit, for bringing us into being. We look forward to more exciting and challenging years of growth in ministry and outreach.
