RCCG tasks members on bodily exercise to keep healthy

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has enjoined its members to embark on regular  bodily exercise to avoid any untimely and sudden deaths that might be caused by  excessive calories.

Pastor Olusola Johnson, the Head of the Region 22 of RCCG, stated this on Saturday in Akure during a prayer walk that covered about 2.1 kilometers.

The exercise, which was organised by the Ushering Department of RCCG Province 1,  started at Oluwatuyi Quarters to Idi-Agba spanning through Investment Junction down to Olukayode building and ended at Higher Ground of RCCG, Oluwatuyi Quarters.

" We just heeded doctors' advice that's we must exercise our bodies. 

" In the Ushering Department, we do have organise training and medical check up and in the course of one of them, the medical team advised us to put this in place.

"When Covid-19 crept in, we discovered that our activities have been reduced and we decided to organise this exercise and we just freshen it up by advertising Jesus,which is the reason we are together.

"If you observe, people are no coming to church because of Covid-19 protocol guidelines and we also use this exercise to inform them that they should not rest on their oars, telling them to get it right," he stated.

The cleric promised that the exercise would be replicated in all provinces in Akure and beyond, asking those who could not make it to get prepared for the subsequent ones.

Similarly, Pastor Modupe Adewole, the Ondo Province 1 Head Usher, said that the programme was meant to keep the participants fit for the work and to evangelise.

" The health officials among the ushering department advised us so that we will be healthy and do the exploit.

" It is three in one programme: to exercise our bodies, evangelise and pray.

" By God's grace, we will be doin it either monthly or quartely depending it does not concide with the major programmes in the church," she said.

Adewole, therefore, urged all members of the church to be part of the exercise in the subsequent ones for bodily fitness and longevity.

In his words, Deacon Afiz Momoh,the Chairman of the Organising Prayer Walk Committee, Ondo Province 1, commended the authorities of RCCG for approving the programme,which he described as impetus for human survival.

Momoh, therefore, urged the authorities to make it to be at least once in a month (NAN)
