E-mail Печать PDF

June 4 and 5, there were held celebrations in Naberezhnye Chelny to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good News Church.

Brothers and sisters of the Churches of the Volga Federal District gathered together to carry out the Regional Festive Prayer Service on June 4. At the beginning of the service, Bishop Vasily Evchik briefly told how God had called him to serve in Tatarstan, and how the Church in Naberezhnye Chelny had been grown.

The event was also attended by the ministers of the evangelical churches of Naberezhnye Chelny "Rebirth" and "Philadelphia". Bishop Alexander Mandzyuk, pastors Leonid Povorov, Sergey Kudrin congratulated our church with the date, and briefly shared in preaching the word of instruction.

At the first part of the even, a minister from Glazov, Russia Victor Zhuchenko, and a minister of Samara, Russia Yuri Ivanov also shared with Word of God in sermon.

On Sunday June 5, the solemn service took place which the whole church gathered for. It was a service of praise to the Lord for His great mercy that He had formed His church in Naberezhnye Chelny.

The choir praised God through the psalms of thanksgiving that day. Children's ministry presented a wonderful program: children told poems and sang a psalm, their teachers also recited poems and sang some psalms about church. A present from the children's ministry was a big beautiful cake made with their own hands. All were very pleased with the youth choir that performed three wonderful psalms.

At the service, there was awarding of memorable certificates to brothers who on the eve of the service made a covenant with God by water baptism. Brothers told few words about themselves, then the church performed a prayer for them.

On both days of the celebration, there were shown videos describing history of the church, and also video greetings of brothers and sisters who had moved from Nab. Chelny to other cities and countries.

None stood aside who had come to the church at young age during the 1990s. They made a collage of the Psalms which had been performed in the church during the period of creation. The church was also pleased with the Tatar musical group that sang several psalms in their native language.

Many sermons did come from the guests’ mouths that day. The Word was shared by Victor Kovalyk (in the 1990s he worked as a missionary in Naberezhnye Chelny); Andrej Nastas who together with a group from Moscow visited the service; brothers from Belarus.

Those two days, in between the first and the second parts, they covered banquet tables, and all participants were treated with a wonderful meal that had been prepared by brothers and sisters.

We thank everyone who participated in the preparation of those events: those who prepared food, who helped to lay the tables, all those who prayed for the conduct of those services. It was a blessed time, when we might praise God and hear the word of instruction and edification, perform prayers together, and just talk to each other.
