The Dominion City Church Parliamentary, in Calabar the Cross River State capital, yesterday 20/9/2020 held a palliative service where food items worth millions of naira were distributed to the host community.
The service tagged “10,000 man COVID 19 palliative service” had in attendance thousands of people from around the church’s community and beyond who came to share the word and receive what the church was offering.
Delivering the homily, the State Pastor, Pastor Tobechukwu Mbanefo, said that it was only right that the church put together its resources to help the community around it, as they were not only concerned about making heaven but how one lives on earth.
Reading from the book of Genesis 1 vs 26, the State Pastor held that God has bestowed on all men gifts, which he expects them to use for his good by being blessings to each other.
Speaking, Pastor Jesam Obono, resident Pastor of Dominion City Church Parliamentary, added that one of the church’s core values is the passion for people, and it is that passion to help that have led to the hosting of the palliative service.
“We found that the City of Calabar is going through a lot of pains because of the pandemic, and we felt that one way to ameliorate their pain is to organize a meeting like this where we can be able to do that.
“This is for everyone who is interested. We just want to show our love for our host community, so to speak. We understand our place as a church in providing succor to our people and this is part of it.” He said.
The church distributed bags of rice, cartons of noodles and sanitary pads.
