Celestial Church of Christ, Zion Parish, Itedo, Lekki Phase 1, is another Parish of the church that is said to be savvy and modest in the way they handle and operate the running of the church. The reason is not far-fetched as the parish is being led by a vibrant forward-thinking shepherd in the person of Sup. Evang. Richard Adelu.
CCC Zion Parish Itedo-Lekki has not just raised the standard in terms of putting in place a workable and result-orientated administrative structure to ensure a smooth running of the affairs of the parish to make it accountable to parishioners as a right, but to also make it accessible to those who may have one enquire or the other to make about the daily running of the parish. Not only that, it has become a toast to every Celestial member, who has heard about the innovative ideas put in place to make those who are already in the fold remain and make new converts stay and accept it as a household of God where they are welcome and thus see themselves as a member of the glorious family.
Truth be said, every worshipper wants to worship God in an atmosphere where comfort is not relinquished to the back burner.
Since the inception of the Parish, the shepherd with the support of the governing board has established one major fact, that is, not all Celestial Church parishes are ungodly. The service at this Parish is strictly in-line with the doctrine of the church. Even their choir members are modest, the glory of God radiates. We can go on and on and on.
Another novelty this church has put in place is a guest house for those who want to come for Protection, as much as it might sound alien, let us not lose sight of one cogent fact, which is both a need and right. Privacy; it is with this in mind that the church administration made provision for a place where you get reasonable comfort as it is deemed fit within the modern day church environment.
Though, this act is being questioned by some people saying that it’s un-Celestial that anyone coming for Abo should be able to sacrifice his or her comfort so that the prayer can be well accepted. Can we really have to fault them on that notion?
The Parish also has carved a niche for itself in the Celestial fold as one of those who celebrate the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Last year’s celebration of this event was glorious as the amiable Shepherd, Adelu seized the opportunity of the occasion to preach love and unity in the church and for the country to enjoy peace.
Adelu said, “When we have brotherly love, peace will reign and there will not be evil in our society as it abound today. No one will want to steal money when you have brotherly love for your fellow human beings.”
Learnt the church is already making adequate provision for this year’s Holy Mary’s Day. Can’t wait to witness it.
