Children sunday school rally 2018
It was a huge Celebration and moment of Spiritual refreshing, as the Children and Children Teachers from all the various Circuits within the Diocese participated.
The Sunday School Superintendent Bro. Chris Amaechi, Diocesan Children and Youth Work Coordinator, The Rev. Paul C. Egbo, and the Diocesan Bishop – Rt. Rev. Dr. Etim U. Ekong, JP, all gathered together for the event.
The programme commenced with street evangelism embarked on by the children within the D-Line area with distribution of tracts and Campaign for “Peace and Holiness,” which was the Conference theme of the year.
The Rt. Rev. Dr. Etim U. Ekong, JP, in his opening Charge, took his text from 1 Samuel 3:19, and it says, “So Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.”
Presenting the life of Samuel as a good life worthy of emulation, he admonished the Children to remain steadfast in God despite the worldly pressures from their peers.
According to him, peer pressure did not distract Samuel from growing in his walk and relationship with God.
Therefore, they are expected to serve God and develop personal relationship with the Holy Spirit just like the boy Samuel who later found favour before God.
Through the personal relationship he developed with God, God always made the words of Samuel to come to pass throughout his lifetime.
Just as God established him as a Prophet, He will do the same for anyone who stays close to Him. The Bishop prayed and blessed the children.
