MADINA: IMMANUEL CHAPEL DEDICATED

By Shalorm Fafa

Christians are asked to respond to God’s call by assisting the poor and vulnerable in their midst, and reach out beyond the confines of the church building. The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church of Ghana, Rt. Rev. Dr. Yaw Frimpong Manso, said that building a culture of maintenance is essential in developing the nation. He was speaking on the occasion of the dedication of Immanuel Congregation Chapel, at Madina in Accra. The Immanuel Congregation, formerly known as Madina Presbyterian church started 48 years ago on the veranda of the late Mr and Mrs S.M.K. Tettey. Today the church has a massive chapel with ultra modern facilities and is dedicated to the glory of God. The event which had the theme “Empowered by the Holy Spirit to respond to the call of God” was graced by Presbyterians from across the country. In his sermon, the Moderator of the general Assembly, Rt. Rev Frimpong-Manso, called on all Christians not be just church goers, instead, they should unite and reach out to people who need their help. He urged them to exhibit quality life style that would affect others positively. The La Mantse Nii Tetteh Kpobi Tsru, is a committed Presbyterian. He cautioned that the church building should not be seen as just an edifice, but the house of God where His grace and favor is fully present. As a sign of respect to the throne of God, he took off his royal sandals when he approached the pulpit. Earlier the Moderator of the General Assembly was assisted by other members of the clergy and guests of honor, in dedicating the chapel and also a mini bus to the Elim Missionary orphanage.
