The children convention of the Shepherd’s Vine Christian Centre took place on the 12th & 13th of August 2017.
The convention with the theme “Differentiated by His Reign” began with a variety of presentations on the first day, and culminated with a Thanksgiving Service on the 13th of August 2017 at the Shepherd’s House.
The focus of the convention was not to entertain but to encourage and teach the children that all of their God given talents and potentials are to be used to glorify God. The Children, after months of preparation and rehearsals, presented Play lets, Songs, Dances, Bible recitation, Ballet presentations, Talk Shows and much more, to the glory of God.
The children, under the guide of stewards, handled major aspects of the service on Saturday. A child shared from the scriptures on what it really means to be differentiated in the world by God’s reign in our lives.
Pastor Kemi Ogiemudia also spoke to the children on the need to be open to God and available to Him for use. She encouraged children to resolve in themselves not to be corrupted or spoilt by the world. She ended her sermon by praying over the children and stewards.
On the second and last day of the convention, children and stewards turned up in their colorful uniforms to thank God for crowning all the efforts put towards the Children Convention with success. They also expressed gratitude to God for His protection and preservation.
Stewards and parents were given an opportunity to speak about the impact of the children ministry in the life of their children, even as stewards also appreciated our Senior Pastors – Rev. Emmanuel & Pastor Kemi Ogiemudia – the Branch Pastors, the Pastoral Team, Parents and the entire church for their support and prayers.
