WELCOME MESSAGE 

      
 

Welcome to the Grand Opening and 1st Annual Homecoming gathering of the All Nations

Fellowship (ANF) SDA Church. It is great to see so many believers in Christ, men and women

& children here celebrating with much enthusiasm and genuineness. It has been a long time

coming (27 years) since we have envisioned this event and look just how far we’ve come! Are

you happy to be here?

ANF is pleased to host this very momentous event which gives us the opportunity to see our

best friends and loved ones. Your presence here today, is the greatest gift that you could offer

at a time as this!

Many of you have traveled great distances to participate in this grand celebration. The local

ANF family and I would like to express our deepest appreciation to you, our extended family,

for making the sacrifice in time and expense to be with us on this special weekend.

Please consult your Grand Opening and Homecoming brochures for the schedule programs of

the day; we have some tremendous programs planned for you today.

Folks, we are truly blessed to have you and we want you to have a great time fellowshipping

with old & new friends.

We cordially invite our visitors, who live locally, to comeback and worship with us next

Sabbath. Our regularly scheduled services start at 9:30 AM with Sabbath School followed by

the Divine Worship service at 11:00 AM. You will be richly blessed spiritually and experience

some of the most loving Christian fellowship ever.

To all of you, thank you for being here, welcome, and enjoy the Sabbath services with us!

Courtenay Osborne
