The Sanitation Department is one of the existing groups in THE BRIDE ASSEMBLY CHURCH. The group has been in existence since 2003 but it was formally inaugurated in the year 2006 at Ijesha. Sanitation department is a group of brethren who has taken it upon themselves the burden to make sure that the church of God is kept clean continually as there is a saying that “CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS”.
This can be seen in the bible when God warned the children of Israel to keep their camp clean in Deuteronomy 23:14, for God does not dwell in a dirty environment.
This group see it as a great priviledge serving God in this area as He God searches the heart to reward a good work of labour done in His name (Hebrew 6:10).
Apart from sanitizing the church, they also run what is called “membership support program” to help the members when the need arises.
To help their spiritual life, they have monthly vigils on the last Wednesday of the month just to seek the face of God who alone can strengthen them. 1 Thessalonians 3:10
The vision is to see that the church of God and its surroundings is kept clean and a
ttractive (Numbers 8:7).
The mission is to dutifully carry out the work of God in humility, prayerfully to come out a good christian for He alone can give the power to move the church of God forward spiritually and physically. Mathew 11:28-30. “Above all giving diligence to make our calling and election sure” 2 Peter 1:10.
