A few of my favourite things about church

Yesterday I learnt about 'Seeds' in church and some of the different kinds of seeds that can be sown. (By the way, I go to an absolutely fantastic church! Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), City of David (COD)... Lovely lovely place!

Some of the things I love about my church, COD -

1. We are under a wonderful mission aka RCCG and we have a blessed and well respected leader in the person of Pastor E.A Adeboye. (A man I totally respect and would be the no 1 person at the moment I would love to have a sit down, in-depth, no holds barred chat/interview with on a month-long retreat) :-)

2. At COD we have a very amiable Pastor and very trendy too! (The side-parting hair-cut is just too cool and his funky stride walk lol) A cool spiritual 'dude' - iLike!

 You can see the swag even from the picture lol + notice the haircut :-) SOURCE

3. The worship is AMAZING!! I look forward to what heaven would be like with us all joining the heavenly hosts in humble adoration (Hope to see you there? Give me a nudge, you will not miss me.. I will be the one leading the choir and singing the loudest in my sparkling robe *wink*)

 SOURCE
* Please permit me to digress - The special song yesterday was so amazing! I could have gone home straight afterwards feeling blessed.. It was powerful enough to have made church for me! It talked about the grace of God.. The beauty of that grace.. What blessing it is to have been lost and found by God's amazing grace!

4. The celebration of families and marriages. This was one of the things that endeared the church to me. I like the fact that they openly celebrate couples and they do this thing whereby on special occasions, couples have to publicly affirm each other before everyone. Some of these open shows and declarations of love, commitment and gratitude have brought a tear or two to people's eyes. (It helps to restore your faith in the institution of marriage)

5. Commitment to social action, community development and giving. COD is a giving church! I have to say that. One of the things that made me decide on COD as a church of choice was how much involvement they had in meeting the needs of the poor as much as possible. They have so many initiatives, one of which is the 'A Can can make a difference'. It's brilliant and I appreciate that in a church.

These are just a very few of my favourite things about COD... You see why I get excited about going to church?! Lol..

It is very important in our Christian walk to find a church that you 'connect' with.. What matters to me in the choice of a church may be at the very bottom of your list but I thank God for the variety in styles of worship and conduction of services. The underlying and uniform quality must be that they preach Jesus, the unadulterated word of God, in addition to other things.

Look for what suits you but don't stay home remaining unsatisfied.. Church can be and should be fun, exciting and a family! It's possible!

  9. Indeed RCCG COD is where d love(undiluted one) of God reigns n dreams come true(I mean where u r really gingered 2 make ur vision a reality). A place where legends r born( u can never be a moron there @ all-one is always enlightened on being what God wants one 2 be). Every history of tomorrow is experienced today because d declaration 'I believe it n I receive it' is really working them out 4 us in d church.
