This past Easter, per the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s culture, the church (City of Refuge Zone) went out to the community for an outreach exercise tagged ‘Let’s-Go-A-Fishing.’ This year’s theme was ALIVE and it lasted two days – Good Friday, 30th and Saturday, 31st March. Its venue was located in the heart of Akowonjo – Lambe Ikudaisi Street, off Shobo Bus Stop, Akowonjo, Lagos.
On Good Friday, the Youth and Young Adults began the outreach with a community clean-up exercise from 9am. They cleared the drainages of the surrounding environment, swept and bagged dirt within the vicinity while simultaneously distributing tracts and evangelizing. Later in the afternoon (3pm), another wave of evangelism took place as the workers (in all parishes under the City of Refuge Zone) went out in pairs to preach Christ to the local community. By 5pm, the program commenced with the (Zonal) choir leading the people in songs of worship and praises; and later a movie titled STANDING ORDER was aired. At the end of the day, the combined evangelism exercises and alter call after the movie produced 76 souls won into the Kingdom. There were 303 persons present.
On Saturday, there was a free medical check-up (blood pressure, blood sugar levels etc.) which started at 3pm, as the workers all went out on evangelism. The program like Friday started by 5pm with the choir leading the worship and praise session and afterwards, ABEJOYE: THE KING-MAKER was aired. 41 people met with the medical professionals for the health check, while 63 souls were saved at the end of the day. 317 people attended.
The next Let’s-Go-A-Fishing Outreach comes up in December.
