When God’s grace abounds, surely, nothing will be lacking. The Church delights to see a locale reach another milestone; its brethren stand in awe as they deem it as God’s blessing. His Divine sustenance has been manifested once more through the recently held 20th Church Anniversary and Thanksgiving of PMCC (4th Watch) Macau Locale last May 18, 2014. With the theme “The Acceptable Worship and Thanksgiving of God’s End-Time People” (Heb.12:28), ministers and brethren alike came to witness a blissful assembly at Alianca de Povo de Instituico.
To create a worship-conducive atmosphere, a lively singing was made at the start of the program. Pastor Liza Bregana, the Head Pastor of Macau, extended her warm appreciation and gratitude to God and to all who graced the said event as she delivered the welcome remarks. The offertory message exhorted by the Damascus District Coordinator, Pastor Susan Saulog reminded the brethren that as a believer gives for the Lord’s cause, His rewards will ultimately outweigh whatever he has given up for Him.
Pastor Raquel Dela Cruz, the Head Pastor of Bay, Laguna, was the guest speaker of this gathering. Expounding on the Anniversary theme, she ministered a message which depicted a fitting manner on how to become pleasing before the sight of God. There are a myriad of rationales to offer thanksgiving to God; one of which is the fact that such locale have come too far in service and is bound to progress all the more in the years to come.
A Gospel concert, featuring the Macau Artists, signaled the finale of the celebration. (R.G. Camposagrado)
