The scorching heat did not hinder the brethren of Al Khobar locale as they celebrated their 23rd Church Anniversary on September 7, 2018. The blessed gathering of saints was held in Massara Hotel, Al Khobar with the theme, “Thankful for God’s Calling,” taken from the book of Colossians 3:15.
The event was initiated with joyful singing led by the Al Khobar praise and worship team. The opening prayer was led by Bro. Ronald Catacutan, Lay-worker from Al Hassa Locale, while the Scripture reading was administered by Bro. Lando Corpuz, lay-worker from Jubail Locale. A song of praise was offered unto God by the Cadets & Youth Department just before Bro. Jun Malonzo, lay-worker from Dammam locale, stirred the hearts of the brethren to give glory to God thru the ministry of giving.
Following the majestic song number by the Al Khobar choir, was the powerful and edifying words of God ministered by beloved Bishop Aldrin Palanca. The Gilead Area Coordinator eloquently emphasized the blessedness of God’s calling. During the altar call, a number of visitors accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. Great joy it is in heaven, as the Lord added a number of souls in the Church as the event was then concluded with a Mass Baptism.
Thru prayer, fasting and sacrificial works of brethren, the help and mighty works of God were evident as He made the celebration victorious! To God be the Glory!
