First Baptist Church, Igbara-Oke, Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, on Sunday sent forth National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who had completed their 2018/2019 service year.
In his message at the occasion, the under Shepherd of the Church, Rev. Samson Ayoola commended the outgoing Corpers for been of good character for the period they served the church.
Rev. Ayoola who took his message from Matthew 24;13-14 noted that what ever has the beginning must surely has an end.
He reminded them that the journey which they started about 12 months a go when they arrived Igbara-Oke has come to an end since what ever has a beginning must have an end. He urged them to sustain their good character in whatever position they find themselves in future, saying they should always have it at the back of their minds that nothing last for ever.
Those Corpers that recently completed their service year in the church were, Odutayo Opeyemi, Oyatoyinbo Oluyomi, Ojo Nkechi, Idowu Esther, Oladimeji Dolapo, Oyewole Kemisola and Itasanmi IyanuOluwa.
In appreciation of the cordial relationship that existed between them and the Church, the outgoing NYSC members were joined by the serving members to sing memorable hymns to bid the church farewell.
The church however expressed appreciation to the departing Corp members with the presentation of gift items by Rev. Ayoola.
