Church forum’s focus on crises

Youth rally kicks off six-day event

The Church of God Chapel has chosen Practising Christianity in a Time of Crisis as the theme for its 76th annual convention, which starts on Friday, 25 February.

Mario Ebanks, chairman of the General Assembly of the Church of God Chapel in the Cayman Islands, said, “If there was ever a time when we need to ponder the events of our little community and our world, it is now.

The Bible provides the answers to face every problem and issue, and we encourage people to join us as we turn to this treasure book of comfort, instruction, and direction.”

Mr. Ebanks said everyone is invited to attend.

“The Bible is relevant for the personal, moral and social crises of today,” he said.

The kick-off for the convention will be a youth rally on Friday, 25 February, at 7pm at the Sanctuary of the Church of God Chapel, Walkers Road. All youth are invited to attend the service, which will feature local youth groups and Pastor Theresa Johnson, who will address the crises they are dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

The regular services start on Sunday, 27 February at the Family Life Centre on Academy Way at 10.30am. The Triple C School band and choir will participate in the Sunday evening service.

Both Sunday services will be broadcast live by Radio Cayman.

Weeknight services through Wednesday, 2 March, will be held at 7.30pm at the Sanctuary of the Church of God Chapel.

The convention will feature senior pastors of New Dimension Church, Troy and Theresa Goode from Providence, Rhode Island.

Pastor Troy Goode is the senior pastor and founder of New Dimension Church. He holds a master’s of ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and has been in full-time ministry for 14 years.

Theresa Goode, his wife and co-pastor, was an associate pastor at Jubilee Christian Church, where her father, Bishop Gilbert Thompson pastored for many years.

Pastor Theresa shares the pulpit with her husband, conducts children and youth ministries, and counsels couples and individuals at New Dimension Church. She has a master’s in education from Lesley College.

The Church of God Chapel has five congregations in the Cayman Islands.
