It is themed “Dare to Believe for the Best in Christ”. This year’s event will begin at 6pm with an official welcome, opening prayer and praise, followed by presentations from representative groups from the island’s churches, including items, messages and prayer.
First off will be the Church of Latter Day Saints, followed by the Seventh Day Adventist Church and the Catholic Church. Each will follow a Bible verse theme.
A “love offering” will be followed by an address from Cook Islands prime minister Henry Puna. Next to make a presentation will be the Cook Islands Christian Church, followed by the Apostolic Church and Assembly of God.
The service will wind up with a hymn and closing prayer shortly after 8pm.
The thanksgiving service traditionally marks the end of the cyclone season (it officially ended on April 30), and draws hundreds of people. - Release
