TEC-MD Devotions

TEC-MD community has started their devotions at due time. we come together three times per week at 9:55-10:40. Mondays are prayer days on which we pray on different prayer items. Wednesdays are for expository preaching. This year Wednesdays’  expository preachings are on Ephesians through the Year. The theme of the year is “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” (Ephesians 4:3). On Fridays we have different programs like songs (by choir, individuals, and also classical ones from Song Book), literature and drama, preaching, testimonies, and field reports.

Semester’s prayer Day

This Semester’s prayer day was on Wednesday October 15, 2014. As usual the prayer was held on the Mount Tabor. The main prayer item was the mission work while there were other prayer items such as praying for the whole work and community of the College, and some sick peoples mentioned from the group and outside the group including someone from America. We committed our concerns and worries unto God and asked him for guidance help throughout the year.
