During the months of July and August, there will be one worship service each Sunday at 10:15 a.m. Church School will be held at 8:45 a.m.
Summer is zooming by, and we are soon approaching the time for students to resume classes! Members of the Young Women’s Initiative (YWI) of the Sarah Allen Missionary Society (SAMS), with whom members of the Church School and Ruby Randall Youth Ministry have partnered this year, are requesting donations of school supplies, backpacks, and monetary donations to assist identified schools with students in need to obtain these necessary items. Collection of items and donations will commence on Sunday, July 27, 2014, and they will be distributed after the Back-to-School JAM service on Sunday, August 24, 2014. For more information on these efforts, contact Katrina Holiday at firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or Teria Drayton at email@example.com. Your generosity and participation will be greatly appreciated.

Journey with our pastor, Rev. William H. Lamar IV, as we launch a congregational book, and group book discussions on August 3, 2014 to strengthen the church’s ministry toward Reaching All Generations.
Ten Reasons to Read the Book: Reaching People Under 40 While Keeping People Over 60
- The Pastor asked us to read it.
- The book offers understanding of the differences in our generations and cultures.
- As traditional church times, programs, buildings, music, staffing, dress and manners are diminished rather than elevated, the book provides a framework for considering ways to adapt and grow.
- The book has a rich set of references of books, periodicals and online resources which expand the points and arguments in the book.
- The book is flavored with stories with which all can identify with.
- The book is inspiring.
- Reading the book will encourage you to learn more about AME doctrine, traditions and teachings.
- The book is an easy read and a page turner.
- The book affirms much of what we experience in the church week in and week out.
- The book reinforces the important of bible study.
