The fishers of men came out in their numbers last Sunday in various centres across the country to celebrate their heritage
Members of the Christian Men Fellowship of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon have been called upon to remain firm and committed in their roles as fathers in the church and the society.
The call was made by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, the Right Reverend Samuel Forba Fonki on Sunday, May 30 at PC Bastos while presiding over the ruby jubilee celebrations of the CMF.
All the CMF groups of the East Mungo North Presbytery converged at the PC Bastos to celebrate and reflect on the road covered so far.
Addressing the faithful, the Moderator, the Rt Rev. Samuel Fonki lauded the CMF for its role in the growth of the church. He said the road is still long to cover and called on the fishers of men to remain steadfast in their roles.
There were equally celebrations of the ruby jubilee in various centres across the country with 22 selected groups of the Fako North and South Presbyteries converging on the Limbe Commuity Field to celebrate.
During celebrations, the pastoral message of the Moderator was read to the congregation by the National Secretary for Men’s Works, the Rev. Ngu Tah.
Preaching from the book of 1 Peter 5: 6-10, Reverend Emmanuel Masok encouraged the members of the CMF to celebrate their heritage as they cast their burden on Jesus Christ.
Other points of the celebration included the award of certificates of recognition to some members of the CMF who have positively impacted the movement.
