2017 Dedication Festival
For this year’s dedication, the Sungrak people who love the church, the Lord’s body, confessed the slogan, “I am the Lord’s” and wholeheartedly offered their true faith to God with thanksgiving and tears. The laity of Sungrak Church voluntarily initiated this year’s dedication which made it more special than any other year. Different church departments including Philip Healing Gospel Mission, Holy Wind Association, Women’s Mission Association, United Association for Domestic Mission, Sungrak Culture and Art Society all came together in full participation, rolling up their sleeves to achieve a successful and bountiful dedication. Also unlike previous years, Sungrak saints set up a gold-collecting campaign. Ordained deacons offered their golden badges which they had received from the church at their ordination and approximately 130 badges were collected in total. In addition, more than one hundred and fifty saints participated in the gold-collecting campaign, and a total of around one hundred million Korean won worth of gold was dedicated. The faith of Sungrak people who unsparingly dedicated what they have when the church was faced with difficult times, will become a good example for all Bereans throughout the world.
