It was indeed a victorious day for the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch) Abu Dhabi Locale as they gathered and celebrated their 18th Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service held at Hilton Hotel, Abu Dhabi UAE last August 3, 2018. This joyous celebration was led by Sis. Carol Celis, locale in-charge of Abu Dhabi, guided by the theme “Thankful for God’s Calling” from Colossians 3:15. Hundreds of brethren and visitors were greatly blessed and grateful for having the presence of the beloved Bishop Aldrin Palanca, the guest speaker of the special occasion.
The Friday School started with joyful songs led by the Abu Dhabi Praise and worship team followed by the meditation of the word of God ministered by Pastor Lito Correos, head Pastor of Fujairah Locale.
The Divine Worship started with glorious songs of praise and adoration to God led by the Abu Dhabi Praise and Worship Team who enkindle the spirit of the brethren to an exuberant singing and praising. It was then followed by the Opening Prayer and reading of the Holy Scripture. A heavenly song of praise was lifted unto the Lord coming from the Harmony of Praise. Sis. Carol gracefully and warmly welcomed everyone in the congregation. A video presentation about the highlights of last year’s church anniversary was witnessed by the brethren. Another highlight of this year’s celebration was a song of praise coming from the AUH String Ensemble, followed by the message of giving ministered by Pastor Lito Correos. To once again magnify the name of the Lord, another song of praise was offered unto God coming from the AUH End-Time Voices Choir.
The Word of God was powerfully ministered by beloved Bishop Aldrin Palanca centering his message on the event’s theme. During the altar call, many visitors came forward and accepted the salvation given to them. The brethren gladly and gratefully gave their thanksgiving unto God followed by the Holy communion and Apostolic benediction.
A mass baptism was held after the Worship Service and many souls were baptized and received the salvation of their soul.
Truly, we have all the reasons to rejoice and be thankful for God’s continuous calling of his people in his Church. And the 18th church anniversary of Abu Dhabi Locale is another testimony of how God greatly works in his Church.
