81st Church Anniversary Celebration

A GREAT 81st CHURCH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION: It was a great celebration, starting with the Gospel Concert on Saturday evening with some outstanding choral groups inspiring our souls. Brother Williams Jones, Rochester, NY, was excellent with his sermonic message during the Concert. On Sunday, November 25th, our morning worship service was super-uplifting with singing and preaching. One precious soul was baptized on Sunday Morning. Brother Jones brought a heart-stirring sermon that Sunday morning and again at our Church Anniversary Banquet. Our Church Anniversary Banquet was great with singing, preaching, a delicious meal and many plaques were present to church members at Clinton Avenue in appreciation for their dedicated contribution to the support of this work at Clinton Avenue. We thank God for this great church and your support in making it a great church. May the good Lord continue to smile upon us as WE KEEP ON CLIMBING. Dr. Eugene Lawton, Minister
