Opening Ceremony of Newly Renovated Administration Building
Friday 5th March 2021
Piula celebrated the opening of the newly renovated Administration Block today. The ceremony was conducted by Revd. Ioane Tuupo (Sea Sinoti Upolu Sasa’e). The ceremony was also attended by the President of the Church, General Secretary and Treasurer along with nearby parish ministers.
The renovation project itself took a total of 7 weeks to complete. All honor and glory be unto God for all that has been accomplished. In Revd. Ioane Tuupo’s sermon he quoted Psalm 127:1
“Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”
The opening ceremony was first initiated with the cutting of the ribbon by the General Secretary of the Womens Fellowship (Au Uso Fealofani) Maselina Tuioti.
