Akuapem Zone of GHAMECC holds annual Rededication Service
Choristers present were advised to emulate the life of Christ to be able to sing inspired songs of transformation.
Ghana Association of Methodist Church Choirs (GHAMECC) in the Koforidua Diocese, Akuapem Zone have held its annual rededication Service at Aburi Wesley Methodist Society over the weekend.
Delivering the sermon at the rededication service under the theme Discipleship, "Teaching everyone to live like Jesus Christ. Holy Spirit and how he empowers to live the life of Christ," the Right Reverend Twum Baah said if the music of the choir cannot convert people to follow Christ, then the singing is only to entertain people and not rendering effective service to God as a choral evangelist.
He preached that choristers are to demonstrate Christ-like attitudes and call on all choirs to serve God wholeheartedly through the Holy Spirit which helps to straighten their path at both homes and workplaces.
"In a world where a multitude of truths and an infinite choice of lifestyles seem possible, choristers need to shape their lives by the pattern of Jesus. We have to be Jesus- Shaped", he stressed.
"Methodism was called to spread spiritual holiness through songs," he continued.
According to him, the early Methodists did that, not simply by telling, but by living inside the biblical story; while journeying regularly to holy places and living ethical lives and through these, they were able to sing, save lives, healed the sick and set captives free of oppression.
He charged the choir to emulate Rev John Wesley's holiness life.
The circuit choirs that forms the Akuapem Zone are Aburi circuit, Mampong, Lartteh, Adukrom and Akropong circuit. With over ten societies under the zone. Officers that graced the occasion were the newly elected Diocesan Auditor, Secretary, and the Director of music with all the mentioned circuit officers.
