Congratulations to our own Rev. Kimberly Barnes who has been named the pastor of Gethsemane AME Church. We will miss her!
From the Washington Informer:
The Reverend Kimberly Brown Barnes was appointed pastor of Gethsemane African Methodist Episcopal Church in Landover, Md., during the 60th Session of the Washington Annual Conference, April 20-24 at Reid Temple AME Church in Glen Dale, Md. She joins the ranks of nearly a dozen women who pastor AME churches in the Washington conference of the Second Episcopal District.
“This is my first pastorate and it is very humbling but at the same time very exciting,” Barnes told the small congregation as she led her first service Sun., April 25.
“We have come open, excited, and a little nervous, but we are so excited about what God is going to do here at Gethsemane,” she said.
Family members and friends joined Barnes and nearly 30 members of the Gethsemane congregation at the worship service currently held in the auditorium at Kenmoor Elementary School, 3211 82nd Avenue in Landover. Among them was the Rev. Marie Braxton, of Metropolitan AME Church in the District, where she co-pastors with her husband the Rev. Ronald Braxton. Read more . . .
