In the beginning of 2020, our church agreed to running small evangelism groups, with the focus on the Youth, Children, and young couples. Prior to the COVID19, all the different groups worked on ideas and ways to run their small groups. The Pathfinder had discussed the idea of running bible studies as part of their program, but unfortunately, when the COVID19 started, it became difficult to continue with proposed plan. The only group that continued with some of their program on and off during the Covid19 period was the youth. They ran Bible studies on most Friday nights, some via zoom and others at the church venue. There were also families Bible Studies and prayer meetings that ran from the comfort of homes led by parents and the children because it was hard to gather together as usual. All these meetings were done in accordance with the Covid19 rules & restrictions.
Our church started the Harvest campaign in September 2020 with the titled “Accept Christ and be Saved” and this was done every weekend via zoom throughout the month of September, and then followed with a baptism on the first week of October 2020.
On the 3rd of October 2020, we held a baptism at church and four souls commit their lives to the Lord.
