Attention Men!!! You’ve seen how other churches of this size and caliber do when it comes to supporting their church choirs and choruses. Most of them have a following of men who want to be accountable, and participate in a function to let God know that they are making an effort to support a ministry of their church. So, come on guys, we need you on every 2nd and 3rd Friday to give us your presence, and /or, your voice to rehearse for that 3rd Sunday when we sing. I have spoken to some, and you know who you are, as we look forward to your commitment.

Bro. Charles Johnson, President Bro. Phil Madden, Secretary Pastor Tyrone Skinner

USHERS NEEDED!!! When God's people are in need, be ready to help them, Romans 12:13 NLT. The Senior Usher Board is in need of Ushers, All ages. Please see Sister Norma Bell, Sister Sandra Lee, or Sister Dorothy Jennings. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
