A clerk of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian (EP) Church, Reverend Dr Lawson Dzanku, has urged members of the Ghanaian community to help reconstruct society.
He observed that moral decadence, exacerbated by the stagnating economy, among other factors, is damaging the fabric of society.
Therefore, promoting values like unity and development while eschewing ill-feeling should contribute to achieving the desired results.
He believes every member must “have a sense of remorse, repent of their evil practices, think about the future of Ghana and build it to become a better place for all”.
Rev Dzanku made the call during the inauguration of the Teiman District Executive Committee of the EP church.
He spoke under the theme, “Come, let us rebuild the walls of Jerusalem”.
The clerk took the opportunity to caution officeholders against sordid activities which do not inure to the benefit of the general society but their parochial interests.
“When we have the opportunity to serve the people, let us serve with all the dedication devoid of selfish interest,” he said.
Rev Dzanku also cautioned the church to be wary of false preachers who mislead them to engage in sinful acts.
Suggesting a way to protect themselves from deceptions, he said the members, especially women, should resort to reading and meditating on the word of God with prayer.
The Teiman EP Church
The Teiman church started in 1999 as Grace Congregation. It was under the Madina District until 2019, when it was carved out.
The district was created during the sixth Special Synod Gathering held at Presbyterian Women’s Centre, Abokobi, in the Ga East Municipality.
The newly created district began operation on July 1, 2019.
Currently, the district has a population in the hundreds.
Inauguration of district executives
A seven-member District Executive Committee was sworn into office. It included the District pastor Reverend Philip Eyram K. Avudoahor.
Rev Dr Mrs Vivian Balasu-Addo, the Synod Moderator, Meridian Presbytery and the clerk, together with all members of the clergy, and Nii Manle Dzahaa I, unveiled the plaque to commemorate the inauguration of the district.
