THE West Brong Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Choirs Union has held their first anniversary at Drobo in the Jaman South District of the Brong Ahafo Region.
As part of the celebrations, the delegates donated various food items including beverages and yams to patients of the Drobo St. Mary’s Hospital.
In their interaction with the patients, members of the choir shared the word of God with them to give them hope and encouragement for quick recovery.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Julius Atta Bediako, the Jaman South District Chief Executive (DCE), stressed that members of the choir were to sing songs that would attract non-Christians to change their ways and serve God.
He urged Ghanaians to lead decent and moral lives, stop prostitution, drunkness and drug abuse.
Mr Atta Bediako stated that the government was on course and therefore, urged Christians to continue to support the nation with prayers to enhance peace and prosperity.
He expressed gratitude to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana for its contributions towards the building of the nation, especially in terms of education and health.
Mr Bediako advised the youth to participate in the upcoming District Assembly elections and called on women to show interest in governance of the country.
Preaching the sermon, Rev. Dr Effa Ababio, Minister incharge of the West Brong Presbytery, called on Christains to be united to speed up the development of the nation.
The Chairman of the Presbytery, Rev. Dr Ababio appealed to churches to use the pulpit to impress the youth in the country to eschew negative activities such as drug abuse, crime and alcholism.
For his part, Mr Joseph Mensa-Diawuo, Choir Presbytery President, also advised the choiristers to be up and doing in their local congregations.
Mr Mensa-Diawuo urged them to pay their taxes, get involved in all church activities and show leadership skills.
