Methodist Church inducts Minister from own congregation

The Methodist Church in the Georgetown/Mt. Coke Circuit on Monday, September 6, 2010, inducted one of its own to serve the church in this part of the vineyard.{{more}} The Rev. C. Stilson Cato and his wife and two daughters were given a warm welcome in his home town church of Biabou. Rev Cato who will serve as Superintendent Minister will be stationed at Mt. Coke. He will be assisted by the Rev. Janis Brikmanis from Latvia (in northern Europe) who will be stationed in Georgetown.

In what can be described as a soul searching sermon, Rev Cuthbert Edwards, President of The South Caribbean District, challenged the congregation to renew their stewardship for what is now being celebrated within the conference area as “the decade of evangelism”. In his message, Edwards called on the members of the church to improve their prayer life, the study of the Bible and their general conduct as good examples to the wider community. He was quite forceful in his call to the church to “get out of the walls” and into the streets to proclaim the message of the Love of God. Edwards also had strong words for the leaders of the church whom he warned not to “occupy office” but to serve the purpose for which they were elected.

The service, conducted by the Rev. Cornelius M. Harry, was quite a thrilling experience, with lovely singing from a combined choir -Mt. Coke and Biabou Methodist churches, accompanied by Bro John Daisley on Keyboard and Alron Harry of the South East Steel Orchestra on tenor pan. The service which lasted for just about two and half hours left the congregation all on fire to serve Jesus Christ with boldness in the Georgetown/Mt. Coke Circuit throughout this new church year and indeed this decade of evangelism.
