On 6 September 2023, District Apostle J Kriel, accompanied by Apostle N Nene, conducted a divine service in Palmridge Congregation, Gqeberha.
The Bible word for the divine service was taken from Luke 19:9-10, ‘And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”’
The District Apostle explained that Jesus Christ is the start of salvation, and without Jesus Christ, there can be no salvation. He went on to encourage the congregation to overcome all obstacles to be in the midst of Jesus, to recognise and be influenced by Jesus, and to take His teaching that we can also become a blessing to others.
Apostle Nene was also called to serve the congregation.
The choir concluded the divine service with the hymn, "When He cometh". Thereafter, the District Apostle greeted all and took some photos with the seniors of the congregation.
