The Jehovah Jireh Temple of the Assemblies of God Church has held this year Vacation Bible School for school children in and around Adenta Japan Motors, Housing Down, and New Legon to bring the word of God closer to them.
The event which began on Monday 3rd August 2015,with the theme “ Empowerment by the Holy Spirit for witnessing” was under the sponsorship of Nestle Ghana Limited, Indomie , Special Ice company Limited Elegant settings, Accra Jubilee Lions Club, Metro Mass Transit company Limited and the Child Evangelism Fellowship.
The coordinator of the vacation Bible school, Mrs. Rhoda Awurabena Appiah, who is also principal Public Relations Officer of the Public Procurement Authority, at the opening ceremony said the event would serve as a platform inculcate the word of God deeper into the hearts of the children in preparation for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Those of us in the children ministry usually don’t get ample time to during church service to delve deeper into the word of God and analyze it to our satisfaction. it is based on this that we have developed this programme to enable us give more Bible Lessons to the young children to empower them. We are taking them through the stories of Neyman, the Samaritan woman, Paul and Silas in the New Testament among others.
We have brought children from the New Legon Preparatory School, Baloga Preparatory and the Big Family Schools as well as Christian and non Christian kids who live within the Japan Motors and Housing Down Communities..
This is the maiden edition of the event and we hope to make it an annual event.
According to Mrs. Rhoda Appiah, participating kids are also assisted to undertake international Bible Correspondence courses and would be awarded certificates.
