One Year Anniversary
ARLINGTON, TEX. – Mount Zion Fellowship, a group affiliated with the Arlington Southern Worship Center Seventh-day Adventist Church, celebrated its one-year anniversary with a week-long celebration, Aug. 13-19, 2017.
The anniversary was punctuated with great music, seasons of prayer and powerful preaching. Notable speakers included Marvin Clarke, a pastor from Abundant Life Seventh-day Adventist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada; Emmanuel Amakye, a local elder from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Ghanaian Seventh-day Adventist Church; and Sam Bore, Men's Ministries leader, from the Arlington Alpha International Seventh-day Church. Keynote speaker was Pako Mokgwane (pictured), Associate Youth Director for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Two hundred people joined the Sabbath celebration where Pastor Mokgwane gave a powerful sermon on faith and urged the members to trust in God. He reminded members that what God had done in the past, He will do again. The climax of the day was when seven individuals gave their lives to Jesus, by going into the watery grave of baptism.
In the afternoon, various groups performed a musical concert. Some of the groups featured were Baraka Unlimited, Messengers of Grace, The Group, Bless Up, Agape Family Choir and Mount Zion Fellowship choir. Mount Zion Fellowship group leader Wycliffe Opiyo thanked all who came and encouraged them to keep on trusting in God despite the difficulties of life.
