Faith Baptist Child Development Center (CDC), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) has organised inter-churches competition for some Sunday school children aimed at shaping the approach used for Sunday school, in some selected churches at Mafi-Zongo in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region.
The quiz competition which was under the theme, “Uniting and Impacting Future Generations through the Word of God”, had children from eight selected churches namely, Faith Baptist Church, New Jerusalem Baptist Church, EP Church, ARS Church, Good News Church, Amazing Grace Church and Globeserve Church, all in the district.
The quiz involved Bible Quiz and Sword Drill for all competitors from the churches. The competition had Faith Baptist Church emerge the winner in Sword Drill and Globeserve Church, the 1st position in Bible quiz.
The NGO presented wall clock to the winning churches and provided teaching and learning materials to all participating churches.
Addressing the gathering after the event, Project Director of Faith Baptist CDC, Jah-Rule R.J Gozzah, said the focus of the quiz competition was to empower child participation and attendance in church.
Mr. Gozzah was optimistic that the quiz competition would have a positive impact on children and would enable them be abreast with the word of God and also allow them to live right for the Lord.
He added that, children’s participation in church must be taken serious because they would be the future leaders of the church, nation and the world at large and for that matter, bringing them closer to their Maker would help them grow spiritually which would have an effect on their physical well being.
He therefore urged churches to allow children take part in all church-related activities so they could benefit from them in the future.
Faith Baptist Child Development Center with support from Compassion International Ghana has been fighting for the rights of children in the rural areas by educating children to identify their rights and they also provide their educational, health as well as their spiritual needs.
