The members of the Tamavua Methodist Church Division were yesterday reminded during a church service the importance of maintaining relationships between families, communities, the vanua and the church.

Speaking to his congregation, divisional pastor Reverend Mosese Seruiratu reiterated the need to work in unity to maintain good relationships with each other.

“Our relationship with God must be maintained through our relationship with others,” he said.

“When we maintain our relationships with each other, the blessings of God will flow into the village, into our church and into our families.

“Unity of the church and the vanua is a sacred thing and we must maintain and preserve it.”

The church service commenced with a march from the Tamavua Community Post to the village church ending their one week evangelism programme where various district leaders within their division were invited as guest speakers.

Reverend Seruiratu said they were conducting quarterly programmes on the theme of maintaining relationships between God, families, the vanua and the church and with other Christian denominations in their village.

“We have witnessed many times the differences between the church and the vanua. So we have now taken this path to work together with the vanua,” he said.

“This is because those who are members of the vanua are also members of the church.”

The church service was also attended by the Turaga na Roko Tuicolo Ratu Apenisa Kalokalo Loki signifying the unity between the vanua and the church.

The division comprises five churches within the vicinity of Tamavua area with more than 1000 members.
