Ash-Town Presbyterian YPG Launches 20th Anniversary Celebration

The Young People’s Guild (YPG) of the Ash-town Presbyterian Congregation in Kumasi has officially launched its 20thanniversary celebration amid colour and funfair. The theme for the anniversary is “The Anointing of the Holy Spirit: Walking Closer with God.”

The launching of the anniversary coincided with the Youth and Students’ Week of the YPG which is celebrated nationwide by the group in all Presbyterian churches. The YPG is the youth wing of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) who fall between the ages of 18 and 30 years.

In a sermon, Mr. Frederick Nartey Dugba of the Tanoso Presbyterian Congregation in Kumasi urged the youth to use the Holy Spirit received to impart positively on the lives of others and help promote the development of the nation.

Mr. Dugba said the level of indiscipline among the youth in Ghana was so alarming and needed to be addressed. He therefore, advised the youth to study and abide by the Bible regularly.

He further advised the youth to eschew all negative acts such as fornication, stealing and pride. He also advised parents to show deep interest in the education and well-being of their children.

In an address, Mr. Richard Odomako Opoku, President of the Ash-town Presbyterian YPG, said the group’s main focus was to help address the increasing moral decadence among the youth. He said this was being done through the continuous sharing of the Word of God, adding that the group “has played a remarkable role in the growth and development of the Ash-town Presbyterian Church.”

Mr. Opoku said activities outlined for the anniversary celebration included evangelism and all-night services, clean-up exercise, blood donation and eye screening exercise, games, and a thanksgiving service.

He called on all members of the church and other religious bodies to join them in the celebration of the anniversary.

The official launching of the anniversary was done by the resident Catechist, Bismark Adjei, and pledged the support of the church leadership for the organization of the activities outlined for the anniversary.
