Dear Brothers and Sisters,
HAIL JEHOVAH AND JESUS CHRIST!
May glory, honour, praises and adoration be to God Almighty, the Creator of the Universe for His benevolent love and care on us His sheep the world over by His grace.
I am directed by the Executive Board of God’s Kingdom Society (GKS) - The Church of the Living God – to inform you that the annual Freedom Day celebration in commemoration of the auspicious birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will be held in various centres of the Church in Nigeria and abroad in all the Sundays in October as follows: October 7, 14, 21 and 28 by the grace of God.
The Freedom Day celebration is an important occasion for us and other lovers of truth and righteousness to honour JEHOVAH the Almighty God and His only Begotten Son Jesus Christ our King who was born in the month of October about 2000 years ago. He came to free mankind from the tentacles of sin and every vestige of error so that the sheep of God will obtain everlasting life in God’s perfect government of endless peace and joy. It is also an opportunity to soberly reflect on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We also use the occasion to show love to ourselves (John 13:34,35) and to examine ourselves whether we are living up to expectation as his true disciples or not. - Matthew 10:25; Luke 6:46; 2 Corinthians 13:5.
A special message from the President, Brother G. O. Ifeacho, to all celebrants will be read in all the Freedom Day centres by God’s grace.
The schedule of centres and dates for the Freedom Day celebration in each zone is here attached.
However, branches not reflected in the schedule are free to arrange for their own celebrations or travel to any centre nearest to them by God’s grace. Any change of date or venue by any branch, based on cogent and/or spiritual reason(s), should be communicated to the Lord’s Ministry early enough.
As usual, the Freedom Day celebration should be adequately publicized and friends or well-wishers invited to the occasion. - Revelation 22:17.
The GKS Press will print all posters, handbills and invitation cards for the Freedom Day celebrations. This is to ensure uniformity and good quality. Thus, except for special circumstances, branches should place orders with the GKS Secretariat. All orders should include VENUE (if different from the attached schedule), DATE and TIME of the celebration.
Central Working Committees (CWC) and/or Administrative Committees of hosting centers are to make arrangements to effectively distribute the handbills and posters on a particular date before the celebration so as to achieve the desired impact. We commend branches of the Church that have been using this method in occasions like this. We also encourage other branches that have not been doing so to follow suit in order to maximise publicity for the occasion by God’s grace.
The Secretaries of Administrative Committees/Central Working Committees (CWC) of the host stations/zones are, by this letter, directed to write a report on the celebration and forward it to the GKS Secretariat as usual. They should write on the top left-hand corner of the envelope: “Freedom Day Report”. All Reports should be sent not later than two weeks after the celebration to:
The Executive Board,
God’s Kingdom Society,
P.O. Box 424,
We wish you all a happy and successful Freedom Day celebration.
May the Most High God direct the affairs of the celebration and crown it with success to His glory by His grace through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
T. Michael Ekiseowei
General Secretary, GKS
