Psalms 127:1 Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
This department oversees the affairs of the church by handling weekly sermons, exercising appropriate guidance and authority over members as required through the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 100:1-5 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
To have unlimited access into God's presence, genuine worship, wholehearted praises and thanksgiving are the keys. Choristers at Maranatha Chapel are specially ordained to lead the church into the proper atmosphere for true communication with our maker.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
God's will for us is to pray without relenting. The prayer group offers intercessory prayer with the help of the Holy Spirit as in Romans 8:26 for the church. Christ has instructed the church to put on His whole Armour as we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Sunday School Ministry
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
Sunday school provide a suitable platform for discussing issues relating to christian living. This is in line with the yearly manual designed by RCCGNA. Sunday school teachers are specially trained to teach the undiluted word of God and handle questions arising from areas of conflict.
Psalms 84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Orderliness is key to the success of every church program. Our ushers are professionals responsible for maintaining safe and healthy church environment, working as the church's law enforcement agent and public relations officer according to their supernatural endowments.
Acts 20:25 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
The welfare department's primary duty is to attend to the physical, financial and spiritual needs of members. They also work towards helping the poor within the church to be financially independent.
