This time, the New Year’s Speakers were our Associate Pastors; Rev. Bichitrananda Satpathy and Rev. Ayub Chhinchani. In the morning English Service, Rev. B.N. Satpathy shared God’s Word from the book of Joshua 3:1-17. His theme was “Setting goals and living by it”. Rev. Chhinchani preached in the afternoon Service from the book of Philippians 4:1-9. His theme was “How to be Joyful throughout the Year!” In the morning Service, our English Choir presented a few special numbers and in the afternoon Service, the Odia Choir presented special songs too. We had a wonderful crowd in both the Services. After the Services were over, there was lovely fellowship with one another.
Let us live this year as a gift from God. Let us live 2016 only to Glorify God Almighty with our lives. We never know when our time will come, but as long as we are on the face of this earth, let us live with only one ,mandate to Please Him always; because on that day, we need to answer one question only – “What have you done for JESUS!” That’s all that matters; nothing else. This New Year, let us throw aside everything that hinders our walk with the Lord and live for Him only. We wish everyone a Christ-centered New Year 2016.
