We have to cancel the 100 Men In Black program, and we apologize for any inconvenience. We were looking forward to a high time in Jesus the Christ.

The Lord laid it on the heart of our Sunday School teacher to do an out-reach ministry for one of the nursing facilities. Our Pastor, co-pastor, and members donated personal and beauty products, and toiletry items to the residents at Pine Gardens Adult Care. The out-reach was a success as members really pitched in and made it happen. On Saturday May 10, 2104 some of our members worked diligently to organize the collected items and delivered them to the facility. The staff and residents were very appreciative for the donation.
Our very own Minister Patricia Williams was the speaker for our Annual Women’s Prayer Conference, May 7th thru 9th, 2014. The theme was Women United In Prayer. The first night of the conference Minister Williams spoke about Ministering to the Lord and Why We Should Praise Him. The second night she taught us about Praying in Faith. The third and last night the subject was Intercession. What a joyous time we had in the Lord. We were truly blessed by this woman of God who delivered what the Holy Spirit gave her to give to us. We are so very thankful for her.
