Celebrating our Silver

Celebrating our Silver Jubilee GOOD WILL MESSAGE VERY REV. EKOW AND MRS. EUNICE SEY(OBUASI DIOCESE) The land on which the Methodist Day Senior High School and the Methodist University (Amex) are situated was originally earmarked for a chapel building. It was one of the Lands ‘visioned’ for chapel buildings by the late Mr. Odamtten and later Mr. Sammy Abakah past Lay chairman of the Tema Diocese, both of whom happened to be staffs of the Tema Development Corporation during the period of Bishop S.K. Hodasi. In 1982 when I relocated to community 11 but still a leader of the St. Paul Society, Bishop W.R.A Blankson asked if I could start a Bible class at Community 11, I did. I moved the Bible Class out of respect to the residence of Very Rev. E. O. Arthur (CdrRtd) who had candidated for the ministry. I named the Class SEY – ARTHUR – HAIZEL Bible Class attaching Bro. Ebenezer Haizel (the Past Lay Chairman) who lived in Community 12. The Membership of the Bible Class included Mrs. Eunice Sey, the Late Maame Agnes Ansah, Beatrice Asare, Mrs. Harriet Arthur, Mrs. Eva Haizel and Mss. Olivia Thompson among other distinguished brethren. I remember the early Sunday morning tea served by Mrs. Harriet Arthur. I started a Sunday School with ten children (including four of my own) the late Kojo and AdomSey, Ekow Sey Jnr. Turkson Sey and Abeeku and EboEssien. Sunday teachers who sacrificed to team up with me in the very early days included Ms. Constance Essien, Hajia Francisca Essien, and Ms. Elizabeth Essien. In the course of time, the very Rev. John K. Bassaw clocked 50 years. He decided that we celebrated the occasion with a prayer party. The prayer party turned into a regular prayer meeting that metamorphosed into a preaching post, following the heels of the Sunday School. Membership of the prayer meeting included the Very Rev. J. K. Bassaw, Bros. EkowSey, E.K. Haizel, KwekuOwusu and Bobby Sackey. It is worthy to note that, around this time the Bible Class had moved from Very Rev. E.O. Arthur’s (CdrRtd) 22 IMMANUEL S O C I E T Y

Celebrating our Silver Jubilee home to a classroom in Medass. Another Class from the Bethel Society Led by Bros./Sis Mbroh and Bro./ Sis Kwame Boakye had also re-located to Medass, with an evening preaching post in the House of the Late Dr. & Mrs. Degraft Johnson’s home at community 10. The formidable trio (of Bible Classes) came together to start the church. KojoSey played the Conga drum for the first Morning Divine service. The service continued until Oct 7, 1992 when it was inaugurated to the glory of the Lord. The name Emmanuel was given by the Rt. Rev. E.C. Bonney at an Annual get together party hosted at “ GO GAY”, a house belonging to one of the early members of the new church. Bro. Ebenezer Haizel suggested that the Emmanuel should be spelt with the letter “I” to follow the scriptural pattern and not “E”. I recall with nostalgia the early end of year retreats held in Adoagyiri Catholic facility and the AbokobiPresby Women Centre facilitated by SOVEREIGN MISSION (Evangelism Promoters and Facilitators) Thus, the IMMANUEL SOCIETY which has scored quarter of a century (25 years). “Keep the fire burning, it must not go out “ (Lev. 6:13). WE SALUTE YOU!! IMMANUEL S O C I E T Y 23
