Seventh Day Adventist Church, Potter’s Outreach, Celebrates Eighth Anniversary
SEVENTH Day Adventist Church, Potter’s Outreach, Ikoyi will celebrate its eighth anniversary on Saturday, July 18, from 9am, the church has announced. Dr. Tunde Obrimah, the first Elder of the church, said that one of the reasons for the celebration is to thank God for how far He has led the church in the past eight years.
He also said: “As we turn eight, we are not just thanking God for blessing us in many diverse ways, but to let the world appreciate how important it is to have a deep knowledge of Him, as reflected in our celebration theme: ‘That I May Know Him.”
Speaking on how the church was established in 2007, Elder Seyi Wright, said: “A few families deliberated on how to have an uplifting form of worship that merges the ‘conventional and contemporary’, which at that time seemed impossible. The focus has been on Christ and how the Church can be a veritable instrument in expanding the Kingdom”. Wright said that since its inception, Potter’s Outreach, a bridge building initiative, has focused on its motto: “Developing leaders and disciples for Christ.”
Lawrence Ehilegbu, chairman, anniversary organising committee, said the planned programme, which takes place at Coral Reef Hall in Ikoyi at 10am, will feature many inspiring and spiritually uplifting activities.
“In addition to other speakers, the Managing Director of GSK Plc, Mr. Reuben Onwubiko, will be speaking on the theme “That I May Know Him”. The latter part of the programme will involve a panel discussion emphasising diverse family issues within the context of the theme and proffer practical solutions to help participants live a more fulfilling, love-based life,” he explained.
