The premises of the Celestial Church of Christ King of Kings Cathedral was a beehive of activities as the celestial church held its first Children Harvest ever.
Recall that the gigantic and befitting edifice for the service of almighty creator was opened to the public late last year when the former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, commissioned it.
On Sunday, June 5, 2022, for a church which is few days above 100days in existence shocked the celestial community and indeed its neighbours with the magnitude of worshipers in attendance to celebrate with the children on their special day tagged Harvest of First Fruits.

According to the Shepherd-In-Charge (SIC) of the parish, Prophet Olajide Salako, being a witness to the maiden edition of the event was something to be happy about.
“This is a special ceremony in our church because we’re celebrating our very first Juvenile Harvest Thanksgiving Service and also rejoicing with all the Celestial kids around the globe.
“We’re really happy to witness this remarkable occasion that the Lord Almighty purpose for us to have,” Prophet Salako said.
While stating that it was a delightful moment, the SIC backed up his claim with a Bible verse saying, “Behold, children are the heritage from the Lord , the fruit of the womb is a reward.”
On his part, the parish’s grand patron and chairman of DPkay Homes & Property Ltd, Sup. Evang. Dele Akinola, revealed that he was indeed impressed by the event.
“Today, KOK rejoices with the entire children church and all the Celestial children around the world for the annual Juvenile Harvest Thanksgiving Service.
“It has been an impressive and delightful journey so far and we bless Almighty Jehovah for giving us yet another reason to celebrate in this wonderful vineyard,” said Sup. Evang. Akinola.
The property mogul, thereafter, prayed for God’s protection over the children.
