Beginning from this Sunday, and throughout all the Sundays in October, members and friends of God’s Kingdom Society (GKS), The Church of the Living God, would be holding Divine Services to mark the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who came to this world more than 2000 years ago.
A statement by the Publicity Secretary of the Church, Brother Benedict Hart, said the birth of Christ is worthy of being celebrated because he bore the brunt of man’s inherited sin by paying back the life man lost in the Garden of Eden. “His birth marked the beginning of a new era, not only in the history of the world but also in man’s relationship with God”, the statement said, adding, “No one else could have made the sacrifice he made in coming to this earth to suffer and die for the sake of sinful mankind”.
The “Freedom Day” Divine Services would however, be low-keyed and would be held at Branch level. This is in view of the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic in Nigeria and other parts of the world. For that reason, all attendees have been enjoined to wear face masks and observe social distancing while provision would be made at the Service Hall premises for members to wash their hands, do temperature checks, besides other protocols.
The duration of the Divine Services would not be more than two hours. Cultural groups would not be allowed to perform. Refreshments after the service would be on take-away basis.
The GKS has been observing the birth of Christ in October since her inception in the 1930s.
