All is now set for the 10th Annual Synod of the Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Lagos West. The four-day event coming up at Methodist Church Nigeria, Opebi, Lagos will kick start on Thursday, March 17, with the ministerial and lay sessions. The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, is expected to declare the synod open during the opening ceremony on Friday March 18, while the Synod programme would be rounded off with a thanksgiving service on Sunday, 20 March at the same venue at the 4p.m.
The theme for this year’s Synod, ‘Chosen to bear fruit,’ has been prayerfully selected to reassure the citizenry on a great turn around spritually that God will do concerning this nation, Nigeria. According to the Chief Host of the Synod, the Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Oluyemisi Ogunlere, he said: “The promise of God to us as a nation and the whole world in general is to bring a total stoppage to all the calamities in our land, all natural disasters and self destructions around us and ultimately turn all our challenges to opportunities if we allow the holy spirit to take control of our lives as his beloved children . As Methodist, we’ve challenged ourselves to take a position on how best we can move forward with the holy spirit by adding value to our immediate societies by bringing it to the front burner at this year’s Synod of the Diocese and pray for peace and togetherness among nations all over the world”
