The Scripture Union Ghana Adult Fellowship (SUGAF) has been inaugurated at a ceremony held on 12th February 2023, at the Terrace of the SU Tower, in Accra, Ghana. The ceremony brought together 110 old and Young SU People from about 5 Regions in Ghana.

Rev. Dr. Gottfried Osei-Mensah (First Secretary of SU Ghana National Council) was the Guest Speaker. He spoke on the theme, “Rest for the weary” from Matthew 11:25-30. He encouraged brethren to lay all their burdens on Christ and take up His yoke since His yoke is light. He also emphasized that Christ’s call on us is ROYAL, because of His credibility and as King of kings.

The ceremony was spiced by the presence of a representative of the Scripture Union Old Guards Fellowship in Kumasi (OGF). Mr. Samuel Nketiah, the immediate past Chairman of the (OGF) in Kumasi, gave an explicit presentation to help determine the way forward for SUGAF-Accra.

SUGAF was initiated to enable members meet quarterly to have fellowship, study God’s Word, and break bread together, as recorded in Acts 2:42. Additionally, members will pray for the nation, the Church, and SU ministry; create the atmosphere for accountability partnership. SUGAF will also educate members on health issues and the steps to healthy living. Members will also serve, as resource persons for the Scripture Union’s ministry among children, the youth and families and support specific Ministry Projects with funds for maximum impact.

The SU Council Chairman, Mr. Morgan Asiedu, facilitated the formation of an interim committee that has the following brethren as members: Rev. Francis Kusi, Mrs. Mercy Nsiah-Sarfo, Prof. Samuel Okantah, and Prof. Kobina Nkyekyer. Mr. Yaw Atakora-Agyarkoh and Mrs. Elizabeth Antwi were included as Staff to help in the coordination of activities.

He expressed appreciation to all present and prayed God’s blessings on those who are giving in support of the development of the Children’s Campsite at Pepawani. He gave praise to God that the 14-acre plot of land for the Project has been fully paid for.

The inaugural service was ably moderated by Rev. Erasmus Laryea, District Minister of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and Chairman of SU National Schools Committee. The next Fellowship meeting has been scheduled for May 2023, at the SU Tower, Accra, Ghana.
