AN ADDRESS PRESENTED BY THE CHURCH COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN, ELDER ENOBONG E. ATAT, AT THE THANKSGIVING SERVICE OF EWET YOUTH DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION HELD AT QUA IBOE CHURCH, EWET OFFOT, 112 NWANIBA ROAD, UYO ON SUNDAY, 4TH APRIL, 2021.
The President, The Executive Committee and Members of Ewet Youth Development Association
Calvary greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
On behalf of the Resident Minister, The Exco, The Church Committee and entire members of the congregation, I welcome you to the Church this morning: The Church of your great grand fathers established in 1909.
We are happy for the giant strides this Association has made over the years in providing a conducive environment for the Church to exist and operate.
We recall the support the Association gave when storms arose to swallow this Church. You mobilized all the resources in your arsenal and the enemy flee. Today we have one indivisible Church, Qua Iboe Church, Ewet Offot which has metamorphosed to a Township Superintendency Headquarters.
Our relationship is not a one-off affair but a mutual relationship that makes us consult from time to time for the benefit of both parties.
As a responsive partner we have always responded to your requests within the limits of available resources.
Apart from the financial assistance this Church has given over the years, we have engaged a number of your sons and daughters in paid employment in the School.
Last time you requested for some scholarship for your children. In consultation with the School Board headed by Elder David Etukudo we have approved a full Tuition free scholarship for one girl and one boy for six years in the school with effect from the next School year (i.e. 2021/2022 school year).
This morning we have, in the spirit of the season of love, commissioned 4 water points to provide water to the immediate community of the Church. We shall do more.
We however request for more support from you. In this era of security challenges we look up to you for support; on the facilities we have provided, we urge you to ensure that they are safeguarded.
Once again I extend the greetings of the Easter Season to the Exco and members of your Association.
