RCCG Region 19 donates canopies, chairs to Ikoyi Registry
As part of its Christian social responsibility, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Dominion Sanctuary, ACME, Region 19, Lagos, has donated four modern canopies and 200 chairs to support the good work the Federal Marriage Registry Ikoyi, Lagos is doing. Pastor Brown Oyitso, who led other church members, made the donation recently.
Addressing the elated management and staff of the oldest marriage registry in the country, Oyitso who also doubles as Intercontinental Missions Coordinator, noted that the gesture was informed by the directive of the General Overseer, Pastor E.A Adeboye, who asked churches to impact positively on their host communities. He said he was particularly moved by the unconducive environment, which the public has to endure whenever they come to the Registry.
“I was moved by my last experience at the Registry, when I came to attend a marriage ceremony. What I expected to see at the foremost Registry was not what I experienced. We were just uncomfortable with lack of shelter and chairs for guests. On the spot, I asked for the Registrar’s attention and assured him that the Church would make meaningful impact in this area. Today’s ceremony is the fulfilment of that pledge,” he said.
Oyitso, supported by other ministers including Prof. Olugbenga Ogunmoyela, Minister-in-Charge, Christian Social Responsibility, Pastor Bayo Omojola, Assistant Pastor-in-Charge of Province (Admin), Lagos Province 89, assured elated staff of the Registry of more support in the near future.
