ICGC Christ Temple to introduce book club and feeding program for children in Teshie

Children in Teshie and surrounding areas will benefit from a book club and hot meals as part of an expanded program to be introduced by ICGC Christ Temple.

It is part of an ongoing church program to embrace the community and touch the lives of residents not only with the word of God but with the necessities of life.

The initiative, conceived by the wife of the Chief Pastor of the Temple of Christ, Lady Joy Otabil, aims to broaden the horizons of children and help produce healthy and fulfilled adults.

Lady Joy Otabil made this known at a women’s health fair held over the weekend to culminate the church’s Pink October program for breast care awareness and promotion of women’s health.

The fair saw several residents of the community receive free medical, dental and eye care at the church premises. The highlight of the fair saw hundreds of residents of Teshie, Tse Addo and communities close to the church take home various items ranging from new and gently used clothes to shoes, handbags, jewelry and children’s toys. of a charitable initiative known as the DORCAS warehouse.

The acronym DORCAS stands for ‘Daughters of Justice, Caring and Sharing’ and is intended to concretely demonstrate the love of Christ by members of the church who donate clothing to share with other members in need as well as communities bordering the church.

Recipients of the DORCAS warehouse and free medical care thanked the church for this gesture and hope that ICGC Christ Temple will continue to make a difference.

The weekend activities follow another successful free healthcare exercise earlier this year which saw hundreds of residents screened and treated for various health conditions.

Lady Joy Otabil further hinted that in addition to medical screening and free clothing, the initiative will be regularized and expanded to include Bible studies and free hot meals for children in the church’s catchment area.

“Beyond demonstrating the love of Christ, as a mother, I hope these interventions will bring some relief and put a smile on the faces of the children and their parents,” Ms Otabil added.

She thanked church members who answered the call and encouraged other members to contribute by donating items to help stock the warehouse to bless others.

Since relocating to the enclave of Teshie in January this year, ICGC Christ Temple East has rolled out a series of community interventions in areas such as evangelism, road resurfacing, health and fitness.
