The Redeem Christian Church of God embarked on its Easter outreach program tagged LET’S GO A-FISHING. The two-day event coincided with the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In line with her passion for soul winning, RCCG City of Refuge partook in the outreach themed “THERE IS HOPE” (1st Corinthians 15:12-22). The program, which is in tandem with the church’s mission and vision, kicked off on Good Friday, April 19th along Igando-Isheri Road, Lagos with evangelism within which were several street dramas that raised awareness about the event.
At 5:30 pm, the program officially commenced at Diamond Estate’s Recreational Park, Igando-Isheri. The Zonal Pastor, City of Refuge, Pastor Ola Olukoyede elucidated the significance of Easter, admonishing those present to see it as a period of Hope and not sadness because Jesus’ death paid the price of sin for humanity and marked the end of satanic torment. He also reminded everyone to have Hope and Faith in God because on the third day Christ conquered the grave and resurrected.
Instead of crying why not celebrate Him, he added.
Later that night, the outreach’s main attraction – a movie titled “The Missing Link” – was aired.
The program continued on Saturday, April 20th with more evangelism, spontaneous street dramas and public awareness, as well as the completion of the movie aired the day before. During the course of the two-day outreach, 39 souls were saved for Christ, the youth conducted a street cleaning exercise, we hosted a representative of our General Overseer, Pastor E. A. Adeboye and announced the birth of a new church in the environment.
Glory to God.
