CCCD Holds Service of Thanksgiving for 50 Years


On January 13, the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf (CCCD) will be holding a special Service of Thanksgiving at the Mandeville Baptist Church, to commemorate 50 years of service to Jamaica.
Speaking to JIS News, Manager for CCCD in Jamaica, Donville Jones said the service would begin at 4:00 p.m., and the guest speaker would be Dr. Gerry Gallimore, former National Director, Jamaica Youth for Christ.
“We are grateful for the many relationships that we have established with individuals as well as corporate entities over the years and this event is supposed to be a great blessing,” Mr. Jones said. He pointed out that all activities in this jubilee year would be held under the theme: ‘Celebrating God’s Goodness’.
“The history and experiences of the CCCD all point to this reality and we trust that many of our friends will attend as we strive to thank and praise our gracious Heavenly Father for his faithfulness to this ministry over the years,” Mr. Jones said.
He said that on January 15, the CCCD would be hosting an appreciation banquet at the Kendal Conference Centre.
