Pomp and Pageantry as Mount Zion National Headquarters Celebrates 68th Adoption Anniversary…By Mike Oduniyi
The Eternal Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim Mount Zion National Headquarters, Surulere, Lagos, held its 68th Adoption Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 12, 2017.
The service, which capped a week-long activities that included revival, open air preaching, rally and musical concert, began with the Baba Aladura and Prelate of the Eternal Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim Church worldwide, His Most Eminence Dr. David L. Bob-Manuel, leading the procession, was celebrated amid pomp pageantry.
The anniversary had in attendance distinguished personalities from home and abroad, including the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgar Imohimi.
Apostle General Tope Ogunnaike took the confession. Mother Cherub Janet Otubu read the first lesson of the Thanksgiving service while Elder Ayo Akinmoladun took the second lesson. Elder Isaac Bello led the three-member prayers.
One of the key highlights of the event was the special presentation by Esocs Sango Igbala, on how drumming became an integral part of worshiping in the Holy Order, as well as displaying the first set of drums used in the Church.
Delivering the sermon for the day, Elder Biodun Sanyaolu, said the theme of this year’s anniversary, “Let’s Go A Fishing”, was in tandem with the mission and vision of Baba Aladura Bob-Manuel, having just created the new Directorate of Evangelism, Ecumenism and Mission.
Elder Sanyaolu said however, before members can go a fishing (by winning souls for Jesus Christ), they must first accept Jesus Chris as the Master and Teacher, live the same live style, have the knowledge of the Bible and always preach undiluted word of God, and create time with passion.
