The Locale Church of Macau victoriously celebrated another milestone of God’s faithfulness during their 25th Silver Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving last July 7, 2019 at Hotel Royal Macau.
The Divine Worship started with a parade of colors followed by the entrance of Elders, Jezreel Area
Ministers and Partakers.
The glorious event was commenced with songs of worship and shouts of praises led by Sis. Diane Soniga with the Macau Praise and Worship Team who ignite the spirit of the brethren to a high-spirited singing and praising unto our God followed by an invocation spoken by Ptr. Wennie Santander, the Head Pastor of Shau Kei Wan Hong Kong.
Pastor Elisa Bregaña, coordinator of Jezreel Area and the Head Pastor of Macau, warmly welcomed everyone in the congregation followed by a video greetings from the Goodman of the House, our beloved Apostle Arsenio Tan Ferriol and selected Ministers from around the world who have been part of Macau Locale. Heavenly Songs of Praise were offered unto God by different locale churches from Taipa, Hong Kong and Macau.
The event was greatly blessed by the presence of Ptr. Marieta Collado (Philippines), Ptr. Dhora Ramos (Maui, Hawaii) who was the Master of Ceremony, Ptr. Alex Andaya (Melbourne, Australia) who led the reading of the Scriptures. The message of giving was ministered by our beloved Presbyter Ptr. Violy Concepcion (London). She emphasized that whenever we are offering something to God, it must be the best and must be attained with sacrifice. She also specified that the best thing we can offer unto God is our lives.
The word of God was powerfully ministered by our beloved Guest Speaker Presbyter Ptr. Gallie Concepcion from Honolulu, Hawaii. He also pioneered Macau Locale Church way back in 1994. He shared his early journey in the Christian faith and his search for truth. Everyone was indeed blessed and deeply encouraged to be steadfast in our faith and to continue serving the Lord as we all wait for His glorious return.
A mass baptism was held after the Worship Service and many souls were baptized and received the salvation of their soul.
Truly, this celebration is a manifestation of God’s love to us as He continue to save and adds people in the Church to serve and worship Him. Indeed, the Lord is glorified with the success of this momentous celebration. To God be all the glory!
