“Thankful for God’s Calling”, derived from the book of Colossians 3:15 was this year’s theme in the recently concluded 3rd year Anniversary of Al Hassa Locale, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia last September 7, 2018.
Remembering another year of God’s fidelity and strengthening, Al Hassa brethren were all in awe especially with the presence of Bishop Aldrin Palanca as the esteemed keynote speaker.
Graced with 80 brethren and visitors, the event was certainly an exploit of God’s doing in His Church.
Commencing the program with resonant hymns ushered by the praise and worship team, the congregation was set into a deeper spiritual yearning for God’s words. Bishop Aldrin Palanca’s worship message emphasized that a believer was added to the Church because of God’s desicion. He also mentioned that a believer’s connection to the Church gets stronger because of his connection to Christ and because of that, one’s service to God must be defined by his fear and obedience to God.
Understanding the message conveyed, the visitors were all drawn to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour. It also moved them to a passionate submission to the covenant of baptism.
The blessed Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service was also the brethren’s way to unveil their pronounced gratitude thru their thankgiving offering.
Truly, every year added to the Church is a testament of God’s unwavering power and mercy which invigorates every believer to be more thankful in God’s calling.
