    oshawa1Oshawa Temple Corps celebrated their 125th anniversary in thrilling style. The focus of the weekend was not only on what God has done through the corps in the past, but also on what he is preparing for their future ministry.

    Five hundred gathered together for worship on Sunday morning. In addition to the service, 10 new junior soldiers and three senior soldiers were enrolled.

    Commissioners William and Marilyn Francis, territorial leaders, participated in the celebration weekend. Commissioner Marilyn Francis moved the congregation by singing Share My Yoke. Later, Commissioner William Francis shared from 1 Samuel 2:30, where God says, “Those who honour me, I will honour.” The territorial commander's challenge brought many from the congregation to the altar to dedicate themselves again to God. With a heartfelt response to the appeal, Commissioner Francis proclaimed, “this is the foundation for the future.”
