The first night of the C.H. Mason Heritage Symposium & Celebration was met with anticipation as members of the Church of God in Christ, Inc. and the Assemblies of God (USA) joined together in worship. The International Music Department sang songs to honor Bishop C.H. Mason’s love for gospel hymns in a Live Recording commemorating his life, leadership and legacy.
We were honored to have General Superintendent, Dr. George O. Wood, of the Assemblies of God (USA) preach an awesome message about the need for unity within the body of Christ, encouraged the Saints that God is doing the “immeasurable more”, and reminded us of the importance of keeping Jesus in the Church. There was a shared sense of reverence by all who attended, acknowledging Bishop C.H. Mason’s integral role laying the foundation of holiness and sanctification for our denominations.
After the service, a reception was held celebrating the 150th Birthday of Bishop C.H. Mason. Everyone enjoyed a time of food, fun and fellowship – a testament to the fact that it truly is “good and pleasant for brethren to deal together in unity.”
