“We invite members, former members, and the entire community to join in this gala event and make this a real homecoming occasion.
“Our celebration theme is ‘Moving Forward With the Love of God’ and the scripture reference is Romans 8:28,” said Pastor Wendell M. Oldham Jr., who will preach at the 10:30 a.m. service.
At 3:30 p.m., the Rev. Darryl E. Walker, pastor of New Philadelphia A. M. E. Church, will bring the message. The Rev. Walker was licensed to preach in 1971 and ordained an Itinerant Elder in the A.M.E. Church in 1977. Also, he has led several A.M.E. congregations during his ministerial career.
