It was a blessed and blissful day for members of the newly dedicated Stadium Congregation on Sunday, 20th September 2020 as Lead Apostle Geoffrey Nwogu conducted a festive divine service there.
He read a text word from Isaiah 65: 18 "But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create, for behold, I create Jerusalem, and as rejoicing and her people a joy"
He joyfully welcomes all to the divine service while wishing them the peace of Jesus Christ in their hearts. He assured the brethren that where there is peace, there is joy and joy begot growth, growth begot completion and completion brings glorification at the return of Christ.
In his homily, The Lead Apostle reminded all of God's marvelous creation both visible and invisible with man as the crown of His creation.
He further elaborated that God created all these for the benefit of man and therefore charged all to reciprocate by being thankful and joyful.
He said we can only be joyful by loving and following in all circumstances of life.
