Fort Knox church reaches milestone
The Fort Knox Samoan Protestant Church in Kentucky, also known as Pacific-American Christian Church or PACC reached another milestone since its establishment June 17, 2011. On Sunday, September 9, a delegation from the mother church EFKAS traveled to Fort Knox to induct into the ministry Rev. Faleu Fatu and Mrs. Areta Fatu as the new missionaries of PACC.
The ceremony was led by Rev. Faavae Faataitai. The pastoral prayer was offered by Rev. Faasese Mamea. Rev. Reupena Alo, the General Secretary of EFKAS read the official induction order while Rev. Dr. Sekuini Sevaaetasi delivered a moving sermon taken from the book of 1Cor. 15:58,
"...Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not vain."
He reminded that the mission is God’s work; it's never easy, to be steadfast and to embrace diversity of different faiths and ethnicities.
Rev. Dr. Sevaaetasi also offered the prayer of blessings for the newly ordained deacons, Mr. Terrance Tinsely and Mr. Faasuka Ve'a. On behalf of the church community, a word of thanks and appreciation was offered by Deacon William Yandall.
The ceremony ended with a Samoan potluck and traditional fa'aaloaloga overseen by Mr. Emani Masaniai and assisted by Mrs. Eveline Misaalefua.
