SURUHOTO, AUGUST 9 (MExN): The Suruhuto Town Baptist Church (STBC) celebrated its platinum jubilee under the theme ‘Renewal of hope for Eternity’ on August 8 and 9 with prominent speakers coming and attending the jubilee program.
“As the government has allowed the churches to function with minimum staff and to use protective gears and take up all safety measures and also keeping in view of the spread of the COVID 19 in the state, all the church members were told to wear masks compulsorily and everyone had to enter the church passing through the disinfectant chamber and maintain physical distancing,” informed a press release from Bombo K Yeptho, Media Supervisor.
The Church was scheduled to celebrate the jubilee in the month of April or May but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the same could not be done.
Rev Mulato Chishi, Executive Secretary, SBAK-AIZUTO; Hekhushe Shikhu, President, Sumi Hoho; and Rev Phuheto Shikhu, Pastor, Yehemi Baptist Church were the speakers during the event. They spoke about living together as one and the importance of celebrating jubilee.
Pastor, Suruhuto Town Baptist Church, Toshevi Aye said that the Church was established in the year 1945 and since then the Church has achieved many laurels. He further said that the meaning of Jubilee means coming together, loving each other and forgiving each other. He urged everyone to be loyal, to forgive each other and live together happily.
Souvenirs and gifts were given to the invitees and those leaders who served the church in the past years.
