We will be celebrating our 63rd anniversary and are blessed that Rev. Darrell Armstrong, pastor of the Shiloh Baptist Church in Trenton, New Jersey will bring the message. We are asking each member to make a special love offering of $63.00 for this service. This offering will go towards the installation and purchase of a new sanctuary entry door.
We thank God for all God has accomplished and allowed us to come back and re-open for in-person worship and we thank God for what is to come.
