“BEAR EACH OTHER’S BURDENS, AND IN THIS WAY YOU WILL FULFIL THE LAW OF CHRIST” GAL 6vs 2.
This is the Biblical moto of the Girls and Boys Friendly Society (GBFS), one of the fastest growing young people societies in Africa, and across the world.
The objectives of Girls Friendly Society are:
- To give praise to God by bringing girls (an boys) to the true fellowship in the church,
- To help girls (and boys) in the knowledge and love of our Lord Jesus Christ
- To help those who because of little knowledge, found themselves involved in bad ways and situations,
- To give girls (and boys) broader knowledge about Holy Scriptures (so as to withstand the hectic arguments that threatens the Christian faith).
The main plan for the future is to grow the Kingdom of God, by creating awareness of Jesus’s love. Members of the association are committed in strengthening the youth ministry by ensuring that by word and deed, they maintain unity through the proclamation of the word of God.
