Rev. I.C Agbenuvor, Parish Pastor, Global Evangelical Church, Ho Fiave Victory Chapel has disclosed that the church will hold dinner party for mothers in the church on Mother’s Day next year.
He made the disclosure during Sunday Service on May 13 when he celebrated women of the church on the occasion set aside to celebrate mothers and by extension, women across the globe.
Rev. Agbenuvor before giving the sermon of the day, invited couples who were in church together and gave husbands the chance to celebrate their wives and they in turn, testified of how great an asset their wives have been to them and their family.
The men also wished all mothers and women in the church well and prayed for God’s protection and guidance over their lives.
Rev. Agbenuvor in a sermon themed, Building the Kingdom and Making Disciples as Women, called on mothers and women to avail themselves to God to use them to effect positive impacts wherever they find themselves.
According to him, ‘there are things women can do better than men and women can affect lives more than men.”
He made reference to how some women work hard; give their all to support their children while the men of the homes run around doing other things at the expense of the families.
He quoted Judges 5:6-7 to support his claim of the important roles women play in affecting lives and added, for a woman to be seen doing the kingdom business, she must be available, calculated and organised, have a defined assignment, be a dreamer who masters her territory and be daring and ready to contend for her faith.
Meanwhile, the Church will later this afternoon, hold a seminar on Healthy Living that will bring experts and dieticians together to speak to congregants. The seminar will be preceded by a health screening exercise at the church premises to know the health status of members.
Mother’s Day, which is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, is an occasion that celebrates motherhood. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Ann Jarvis, a peace activist who believed a mother is the one who has done more for a person than anyone in the world, held a memorial for her mother.
