On Sunday morning, the District Apostle conducted a divine service in Dinwiddie Congregation.
The Bible word for this divine service was taken out from Isaiah 52:7, ‟How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!”’
After the divine service, the ministers left the church building feeling spiritually refreshed and ready to serve and reign with Christ.
