The 20th anniversary of the church. Day Two – June 17, 2012.
25.06.2012The second day of celebrating of the 20th New Life Church anniversary started with amazing praise to the Lord.
The children from Sunday school also prepared their congratulations.
They sang songs, recited poems and danced. Even the very little ones participated, trying to speak their verses clearly and their wishes for the church.
Also on that day many ministers from various corners of the earth, different cities and countries congratulated New Life Church with the help of videos. The warmest greetings, the words of support, wishes and blessings came from Dnepropetrovsk, Kiev, Nizniy Novgorod, Perm, Pskov and other cities in Russia and Ukraine, as well as from Bulgaria, Norway, the USA and Finland. Those videos with congratulations from God’s ministers inspired and encouraged the church.
The senior pastor asked the church to be praying for him, since the prayers of the believers give him the greatest support in ministry. At the end of the celebration Leonid Korneevich Goncharenko, the father of pastor Vyacheslav, addressed to the church with words of encouragement. Based on the verse from the Song of Songs (“He has taken me to the banquet hall. and His banner over me is love”), he pointed out that the church should take God’s banner – the banner of love - and carry it to the people, since only God alone is able to heal a person’s heart and his life.
At the end of the celebration service Leonid Korneevich Goncharenko, with the support of other pastors and ministers, had a prayer for the family of the pastor and for everyone gathered.
