The Blantyre congregation of Presbyterian Church of Malawi is wraping-up the year on high note as it is set to conduct a Crossover night themed “Season of Taking over” on Thursday 31 December 2020.
The special service which has been derived as a night of New-connection will take place at PCM church located at Kwacha Central area behind MBC TV and will be presided over by Reverend H.S Kainga.
The Second Deputy Clerk of PCM Blantyre Board, Mervis Maulidi who is also praise team chairperson described the crossover night as a very imperial session considering that it is to reflect on the passing 2020 and setting up believers ready for the coming year.
Maulidi said: “This cross over night is very important and unique than the night of prayers churches have in a year, it is the last day of the year where we give thanks to the almighty for the gift of life in the year just gone by.”
“It is a night where we Cross over to the new year 2021,whilst in that mood of worship and praising God also humbling oneself to say, ‘God I need you in 2021,I can’t do without you.’ “
The Clerk also said it is during sessions like these that people commit to dedicate their lives and plans for the new year unto the Almighty according to the word of God.
Maulidi also said all preparations for the event are at an advanced stage and among other activities to be carried out during the night include praise and worshiping to be led by the Mighty BT PCM praise team.
“In addition we have praise dancers, testimonies, The Word of God, and church members will be awarded on different categories. Fireworks shall be observed at 12:00.”
She therefore urged all Christians to patronize the crossover night in large numbers citing that “people should expect great and mighty things. We shall have more time praise and worshiping God for all good things He has done on our lives in the year 2020.”
“The Bible says ‘when the praises go up his glory comes down’ so people should expect to see the glory of the Lord coming down.” She reiterates
Maulidi added that the event is open to everyone who wish to have a special encounter with the Lord as we cross over but still restricted in line with Covid 19 preventive guidelines.
“All covid 19 precautionary measures shall followed. Everyone coming to this event should mask him or herself up, and Dress code it is the evening wear or any smart outfits.”
She then said; “My message to Christians in this festive season is that we should not be taken up with the things of this world, let us be on our positions, holding on to our faith till the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior.”
