MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATED ON 14TH MAY 2017 AT FOURSQUARE EKUN TOWN
THEME: THE GRACEFUL WOMAN
TEXT: ESTHER 4: 16 & PROVERBS 31:25-26
The mother’s day was joyfully celebrated on 14th May 2017 in the Church. The theme for this years celebration is Graceful Woman. The program for the day was rich as it was different from the usual Sunday service program.
Pastor Mrs Oyelade an invited guest Minister shared with the congregation the virtues of a graceful woman.
She said grace was an undeserved love and mercy from God and that a graceful woman is committed, dedicated and loaded. Like the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31 there are lot of desirable qualities she should manifest. The graceful woman should live a balanced life despite life’s issues.
Like Esther she should be courageous and bold especially when she needs to stand up for her family.
This session anchored by Sister Agboola was meant to encourage couples to know each other better. Four couples were called out to answer questions relating to their families. The wives were separated from their spouses to see if they will come up with the same answers.
Couples were not informed before hand, but as they were being called out one could see they were earnestly trying to agree on answers to some well known questions usually asked in forum like this. Questions like what is the size of your wife’s shoe, your husband’s best colour etc. Little did they know that Sister Agboola will visit the Educational Holy of Holies to bring out pure, fresh and clean questions. They were questions that only couples that have been visiting the Educational place of Holiness could answer.
It was tough competition as couples were visible sweating to get the answers right.
At the end Brother and Sister Akinjagunla came out as winner.
It was fun and lesson to families to spend time to get to know one another more.
APPRECIATION OF MOTHERS
Not too many open display of appreciation for the mothers were seen but our Daddy Adeniyi made his wife proud when he came out during the testimony time to thank God for the excellent and wonderful woman in his life.
Also Daddy Abimboye was in Church to support the wife who is the President of FWI.
The session for thanksgiving was fully charged as Fathers, Youths and Children danced to the glory of God in appreciation of the wonderful women in their lives.
ACCEPTANCE OF NEW MEMBERS
Mother’s day in Foursquare is usually celebrated along with the BIG M(Membership) Day. A time when new women members that joined the congregation during the year are formally accepted.
It was a memorable Day. May we celebrate 2018 Mother’s day with greater testimonies in Jesus name.
