Published: Mar 16, 2017
Deacons Arthur Dorsett and Seldon Adderley along with Verdell McKenzie and Kaivonne Newbold will be honoured for the contributions they have made to their church, Lively Stone Church of God, as it celebrates its 19th.
The ‘anniversary of organization’ is being observed under the theme “Reaching for the Prize” with its scriptural taken from Colossians 3:22-25.
The church will celebrate its 19th anniversary on Sunday,
March 19 at 11 a.m. at the church on Knowles Drive, Tonique Williams- Darling Highway. Bishop Lindo Wallace, senior pastor of the historic Church of God Temple, Grove, and the district pastor for the West New Providence District of the Highway Church of God (Bahamas) will the sermon during the anniversary service.
Lively Stone Church of God is pastored by Reverend Angela Pratt-Rolle.
She serves as the ministry’s second pastor. Pratt-Rolle succeeded the late Bishop Godfrey K. Hepburn who was selected as the church’s founding pastor in May 1998.
The congregation was established 19 years ago by a majority of retirees and people nearing retirement age. The pioneers worshipped initially in a storefront location on Jennie Street. After being given a tent, they held services under that tent. Eventually, the membership realized their dream of marching into their fully edifice on Knowles Drive.
Today the ministry has blossomed into a church family of wide age ranges, diverse nationalities and varied socio and economic statuses.
The ministry continues to develop and embrace its vision and mission to serve God prayerfully and faithfully.
