With the theme “Celebrating God’s Goodness with Abundant Thanksgiving” from Psalms 145:7, the brethren of Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ ( 4th Watch ) Shizuoka Local commemorated their 10th Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service last July 30,2017 at Kakegawa Grand Hotel.
The moving and presence of God was felt in the assembly through the glorious Praise and Worship. Songs of Praise were also lifted up in the name of the Lord by Guests from Tokyo and Abiko Local Church. Lastly, the Shizuoka Local Church Choir also rendered a Song of Praise unto the Lord.
Ptr. Nheng Zonio,one of the Guest Speakers, emphasized the promises of God in giving our Sacrifices of Thanksgiving. With her offertory message, the guests and brethren were encouraged to liberally give their offerings with gladness and gratitude.
After this, Ptr. Sheila Valencia, the Local Head Pastor, introduced the Keynote Speaker who was none other than Bishop Resting Zonio. Bishop Resting composedly but clearly elaborated the different expressions of God’s goodness for all of us. He later concluded with the ways how we may express our response to God’s goodness and he comprehensibly showed the relevance of abundant thanksgiving with it.
The moving of God’s Holy Spirit within the whole service was evident with the lively praises of the audience and the warm response of the visitors during the altar call. Immediately after the Thanksgiving Worship was the Wedding Ceremony officiated by Bishop Resting Zonio.
