A special swearing service was held on last Sunday October 2,2011for the newly elected executives of Ghana Methodist Men's Fellowship in Toronto-Canada.
The eight executives were Nana Ohene Aboagye-Chairman, George Duku-Vice Chairman, Alex Asamoah-Secretary, Stephen A.Quaye,-Assistant Secretary, Jersey Asamoah-Treasurer, Nana Akwesi Amankwah-Organizer, George Oduro-Chaplain and Ebo Afful-Quaye as Porter.
The executives will be serving a two year term of office of the fellowship which aims at spreading the word of God through friendship and social gatherings to win more souls for Christ as the founder of the late Reverend John Wesley set out.
The superintendent minister of the church, Reverend Dr. Emanuel Asare Kusi, charged both the executives and the entire fellowship to be bold and strong in carrying out their duties as a Christian fellowship to also move the church forward.
Quoting from the bible he reminded them that,” curse unto the one who does the work of God any how”.
According to him, misunderstandings are bound to happen but when they takes place Christian fellows should not allow it to cause disaffections among members but rather find a solution to it and move on as one people.
Delivering the induction sermon under the theme” Producing fruits of the Kingdom”, Evangelist Charles Mensah, observed that people have allowed modern day civilization, science and technology to supersede every aspect of our lives that which are misleading us.
He noted that like a tree bearing both good and bad fruits, so people bears good fruits and bad fruits but Christians are urged to bear good fruits for Christ that is why he creates a boundary around his children.
Evangelist Charles Mensah, poked Christians to be awaken by the signs of the world taking place every day by hating all evil deeds that are mentioned in the bible as things that prevents Christians from receiving the blessings of God.
“If we want to bear fruits for Christ, then we must live in the spirit of the lord meaning not living according to things decreed but rather according to the instructions laid out in the bible with love for one another as the sole fruit of the spirit” he charged.
He added that, “yes we are in the fresh of the world but has to live according to the word of God” stressing on the need for all to use the word of God in training the children for them to bear good fruits as God fearing leaders in future.
Later in the service, newly appointed class leaders as well as executives on various committees were also sworn in.
