JCGIA 9th Anniversary

JESUS CHRIST the Great I Am (JCGIA) Church
 9th Anniversary and Thanksgiving


Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10

It was a joyful day! A day of celebration of God's faithfulness.

I went to the church at 8:00 A.M. and then we, the SWAT and Music Team, prayed. An Elder Sister prayed for us together with the two Pastors.

The Devotional started at 8:30 A.M. We sang songs and prayed for that Sunday Service,, for the people who will stand in front, for every part of that service. And then we are asked to look for a partner and pray for him/her.

I then went in the front and sang a fellowship song. The people went around to shake hands to the visitors and brethren. 

I thought I was shaking. Two days before Sunday, when I and the tambourine girls went to the venue for the final practice, I felt really scared. I went in the altar and said to Jovey, "At least there is a lectern. Without it, I will really melt while standing in front of many people." But by God's grace, that Sunday, the fear was gone. Thanks be to the Lord in the highest!

I thank the Lord for the great privilege He gave me for letting me lead the Praise and Worship. For the favor and for promoting me in a higher level. I know I don't deserve it. Thank You God. I also thank Him for the lives of each member of the Sundown Worship and Thanksgiving (SWAT) team. 

After singing songs of praise and worshiping God was the testimony of the pastors.

Everything went well. The Word of God that day was brought by a Reverend. He was really used mightily by God. 

The Word was about  the Joy of the Lord: 

1. Living Holy Lives 
2. Obeying the will of God
3. Unity
4. Living in Truth (3 John 1:4)

I'm so blessed! Thank You LORD for Your Word!

After God's Word was acknowledgement and then we had our lunch. The SWAT Team help in giving the food. 

During the afternoon, there were dance presentations and then the emcee started calling those who will sing. Impromptu. Including my name. ^___^ I was shy (I'm the timid and shy type) and yet if it's for God's glory I will not refuse. I sang "Here In My Life" of Hillsong. It was really fun. Many other sisters and brothers sang for the Lord. It was really good. 

Here are some of the photos taken on that day:
