40 years of God’s Abundant Grace in Odiongan Locale
Odiongan Locale Brethren celebrates 40th Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving day. The Odiongan Covered Court was filled with joyous praises and adoration unto the Lord as Odiongan Locale rejoices on their 40th Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving Day held last September 8, 2019 at Odiongan Covered Court, Odiongan, Romblon.
“Nagpapasalamat tayo sa Panginoon sapagkat ang iglesiang ating kinabibilangan ay may buhay na apostol, na nagtuturo at nagdadala sa atin upang tayo ay makapagkaloob ng higit para sa Panginoon” Presbyter Dante Abainza, the guest speaker, quoted on his topic “Celebrating Apostolic Calling with abundant thanksgiving” taken from Romans 1:5-6.
He encouraged the brethren to never give up on their faith because the apostle never did. He also reminded everyone that they are lucky indeed that the apostle came from their province, specifically in Odiongan. Presbyter said that they should be proud of it and make it as an inspiration to strengthen their faith even more.
The worship started with the parade of the Philippine Flag and PMCC flag, together with the program partakers. Ptr. Jane Lacsina commenced the sounding praises unto the Lord that filled the place of worship. Sis. Florence Memita together with the Odiongan Praise and Worship team led the congregational singing as everyone sing their hearts out for the Lord.
The opening prayer was given by Sis. Loida Gamos followed by announcements and the reading of the scriptures by Bro. Jun Tayco and Bro. Romeo Flores respectively.
Songs of Praises were rendered to lift up the name of the Lord by MCA pupils and the Hymn of Praise Chorale.
The Offertory Message was given by Ptr. Lorenz Zonio that brought the brethren to a more abundant giving.
At night, the celebration continues as the Odiongan Locale brethren showcases their different talents on their Gospel Concert entitled “The Majesty”.
