On 2 October 2016, the long-awaited day of Thanksgiving had arrived for congregations from the greater Nobuhle Apostle area who were invited to attend the divine service held by District Apostle Barnes.

The sermon was based on the Bible word taken out of 1 Chronicles 29:14 “But who am I, and who are my people, That we should be able to offer so willingly as this? For all things come from You, and of Your own we have given You.” The choir in support rendered the anthem “Ons harte was reeds lank bereid”.
The Apostle Mintoor and Shepherd Hoffman were called upon to serve the congregation. The divine service was concluded with a prayer and the choir presented the final anthem. All too soon Thanksgiving Day was over, but the joy and thankfulness will live on in the hearts of the members for a long time to come.
