On Sunday, October 7, 2018 at our 11 a.m service we had a celebration for the 6th anniversary of Christ Star Church of God. We were honored to have Father Bayo Adrien and his wife Ayano from the Imani Temple and Michiko Yokoyama and William Selig from the NOVA Family Church share together in this celebration.
In his message, Pastor Vincent Wright spoke about having a relationship with God as well as with each other. Colossians 3:14 reads: “And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” It is especially important for family relationships to be bound together in love and harmony. Among other things, love can guard these relationships against assault by the enemy.
To close the service Father Bayo led us in a beautiful Blessing Ceremony. During this ceremony Father Bayo pronounced blessings of love, humility and unity over couples and families. The spirit in the church was full of love and happiness. The couples toasted with Holy Juice and repeated the vows to be a True Family. To close, Bishop Allen offered personal words and a prayer. Afterwards, one participant stated: “That ceremony was nice, I really enjoyed it.”
We are truly grateful for everyone who joined us for our time of celebration. We are honored to have had the opportunity to participate in the Blessing Ceremony, and just as we receive our blessings we look forward to extending blessings to others.
