2011 Theme: Going and Growing!

Five districts gathered at Shiru on November 25 – 28 for the 2nd Trans-Africa Annual Conference under the Free Methodist Church Kenya.  As the conference began, there was the potential for some tense moments as this year district superintendents were to be elected but God was clearly in control and the conference ran smoothly from beginning to end.

  One of the highlights of the Conference Sunday service was the ordination as Deacon of John Cheruiyot who has served this past year as pastor at Leberio Free Methodist Church.  The church has just celebrated its 2nd year and pray for Pastor John as he continues to serve there.

There were also 2 elders ordained and 3 ministerial candidates received.

Superintendents introduced to the congregation

Bishop Dingili introduced the district superintendents to the congregation.  Also present during the conference were the delegation from Uganda, David Mweyebya with his wife and daughter as well as Rose Manasseh, missionary from Kenya to Uganda.  They brought greetings from the Uganda and lead in a joyous song of praise in Kiganda.

Last but not least was the bishop’s sermon which challenged the church to stand firm and to stand united as we move into 2011 to preach the good news and make a difference where we are, in the community around us.  There was a great response to the message as individuals searched their hearts and made renewed commitments to work together.

The theme of the Free Methodist Church Kenya for 2011 is Going and Growing – evangelism and spiritual growth ministries working together to impact the world and the church for Jesus Christ.

plea for the churh to work together in unity

    The Christmas offering at our church is for support for Christian widows in Kenya. Do you have time this week to send me additional information to your post about the widows’ retreat?
