Church marks 100th anniversary


THE Buang Lutheran community in Port Moresby celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Gospel being brought into Bulolo last Saturday.
Lutheran missionaries arrived in Buang on Nov 15, 1918. The celebration was brought forward because of the Apec Leaders’ Summit.
Buang communities in East Boroko, Gerehu, 9-Mile and 8-Mile gathered to celebrate the event.
A variety of items were presented, including traditional drama and sports.
Organiser Dannen Elipas said the main purpose of the event was to celebrate and bring back Buang Lutherans who had joined other churches. He urged such people to return back to the fold.
Elipas said youths of today had left churches and forgotten their purpose in life.
