Apostle Bradley Bourne served the congregation of Eastridge 6 on Wednesday 27 July 2022. He used a Bible word from John 16:22 as a basis for the sermon, "Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you." (NKJV).
Shedding light on one of the last conversations that Jesus had with the disciples before His crucifixion, the Apostle brought the clear understanding that the message remains the same for us today: sorrow will not endure forever, and upon the return of Jesus Christ, God shall wipe away all tears and there will be great rejoicing.
The Apostle also performed the act of Holy Sealing and two souls received the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Three brothers were ordained into the Deacon ministry. Deacon R Smith from Eastridge congregation will also take up his pastoral mandate as a deacon in the congregation. The new addition brought the total to four new Deacons.
The congregants enjoyed a short fellowship at the conclusion of the divine service and the blessed gathering was brought to a close.
