Handling Conflict Seminar

Sunday June 28, 2020 was great and very hectic in my ministry, I worshiped and preached the sermon at church of Christ Ikot odiong-Ukanafun with 44 worshippers amidst the Covid 19, every member wore facemask. My sermon titled “Love”. After worship, we had church meeting to plan for more methods to reach out to our rural areas with the Covid 19 protocol, edification of the saved and our routine annual Bible seminar and evangelism in January/February 2021 Lord willing.

I depart Ikot odiong to Church of Christ Ikot Akpa Idem the venue for the second quarter Bible Seminar which has 63 participants drawn from 8 local congregations of the Lord church. The request for this Bible seminar on church conflict was made when the emergency food supply was distributed to the three local congregations at Ikot Akpa Idem on June 1. 

I was the guest speaker on the theme” STEPS FOR HANDLING CONFLICT WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS” , Preachers, Church leaders and Brethren from 8 local churches was in attendance.

I attended to 17 questions arises from my presentation and Bible answers was given with His grace.

I bought 20 piece of facemask and distribute to those who could not afford to help them participate in the seminar in line with the Covid 19 pandemic protocol. 

It was indeed great, the brethren agree for such seminar to hold monthly at other church area to help churches with similar problems as conflict is everywhere even in our homes and if not check, May impair church growth.

Lord willing, the July edition will hold at church of Christ, Nkek on the last Saturday of the month Lord willing, we need your prayers.
Thank you for your kind thought, God bless you and yours.
