Rwanda Partnership Sunday Worship Service
Sunday September 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Today we celebrate and give thanks for what God has done, and is doing in our midst. We give great thanks for God bringing together the people of Eglise Presbyterienne au Rwanda (EPR), Gitarama Region, and the people of the Presbytery of Kiskiminetas. We, the people, the Church, the Body of Christ, were called into partnership by God in 2006, with a delegation commissioned by the Presbytery of Kiskiminetas to travel to Rwanda that September.
The primary purpose of this partnership is the growing relationship of mutual help between both presbyteries, spiritually, socially, culturally, and economically. It was in that perspective that the partnership committees from both sides met in Rwanda on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, and decided to launch an annual partnership Sunday.
As we mark our ongoing relationship with our partner church Nyarubuye Mpushi Church in Rwanda, we welcome to the pulpit the Rev. Samuel Baziruwiha, and we welcome to worship leadership the Rev. Albertine Nyiraneza, President of Gitarama Presbytery.
We give thanks to God for our time together this morning.
