The Annual Mahila Divas organized by the Mahila Samiti of the Church was held like previous years on 20th November, 2016. This year’s speaker was Ms. Smita Pramanik from Puri. This is a day when we dedicate it to the ladies of the Church. The members of the Mahila Samiti gave wonderful presentations to glorify God. There were some lovely numbers by the ladies and along with it there were a few heart-touching skit which was performed by them. Our Associate Pastor, Rev. Ayub Chhinchani presided the meeting and encouraged our mothers. Among others, the Mahila Samiti President Ms. Ranjita Behera, Secretary Ms. Sasmita Chand and Treasurer Ms. Jyotsna were present. It was an awesome time where our sisters and mothers glorified God through their performances. The Mahila Samiti Bulletin was also released and presented to the members.
May the good Lord use our precious mothers and sisters who are the backbone of any family. It was truly a joyous time for the packed audience who were there. Let us uphold them in Prayers as the ladies meet every Saturday in Church for their time of Worship and Fellowship.

There was a Special Evangelical Meeting held in the Church on 7th and 8th November, 2016 where God’s servant bro. Daniel Calvin from Mumbai was the Resource person. Bro. Calvin pastors a cluster of 9 Churches in Maharashtra and Mumbai areas. The meeting was held during the Monday Prayer Meeting time @ 7 pm. It was earlier planned to be for one evening only, but due to popular demand from the Congregation, bro. Calvin was requested to preach the next day too. It was truly a Blessed time for all those who were present on these two evening meetings. On the 1st night, he preached on “Are you in God’s hand?” and on the 2nd night, he preached on “He has the Solution to all our problems“. We thank bro. Calvin for accepting our invitation and encouraging our Congregation through God’s Word.
