NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH OF GOD CELEBRATES 60 YEARS
Written by George Grant on May 4, 2018
The New Testament Church of God began in 1958, with the first congregation assembling in Springs, St. George, and the first physical location in Beaton, St. David. It has now expanded to nine locations island-wide.
The Church has several activities planned throughout the month of May, in celebration of its 60th anniversary, and George Fletcher, Bishop at New Testament Church of God wants people to know that they are around and that they are ready to serve the public.” The theme for the celebration is “Go”, which is a reflection on God’s word in Matthew Chapter 28 – a call to members to go forth and spread the gospel.
Evangelism activities will include church outreach programs to shut-ins, the elderly, disadvantaged, youth and general public.
On May 26, there will be a leadership seminar for church members, at the Lucas Street location, in St. George and a seminar by men for men, during the last Wednesday in May, to promote awareness of health issues, such as prostate cancer, and spirituality.
The main celebrations culminate with an all-day convention, scheduled for Sunday May 27, at 9:30 a.m., at the Spice Basket, in Beaulieu, St. George. It features a grand worship service led by Pastor Phillip Bonaparte, from the United States, and a mass choir, during the morning segment. Fletcher said the afternoon session will involve the presentation of awards to church members who have made notable contributions to the church, in various areas of ministry. The public is invited to join them in worship, at this convention.
