Tema Methodist Diocese goes on float to mark 170th anniversary

Tema, July 30, GNA - The Right Reverend Samuel Achamfuo-Yeboah, Bishop of the Tema Diocese of the Methodist Church of Ghana, on Saturday called on all Methodists to lead exemplary lives worthy of emulation. He asked them to emulate their founders who sacrificed and exhibited commitment. The Rt Rev Achamfuo-Yeboah gave the advice during a float organised by the Diocese to mark 170th anniversary of the church. "The days where people said they were Christians and then practiced vice are past", he said and urged them to lead honest lives. Bishop Achamfuo-Yeboah said as the church aims at growth, there was the need for members to evangelise and bring more people into the church. The church's membership stands at about two million.
