Rev. Dr. William S. Epps

Second Baptist Church of Los Angeles will celebrate the 25th Pastoral Anniversary of the Rev. Dr. William and First Lady Agretta Epps on Sunday, October 14, at the 8 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. worship services. 

The services will be held in the edifice located at 2412 Griffith Avenue in the historic Central Avenue corridor.   Following the 11:15 a.m. service, a reception will be held in Griffith Hall.

The anniversary theme, “Render Honor to Whom Honor is Due” (Romans 13:7) allows for the congregation and community- at- large to extend good wishes and appreciation to the Pastor and First Lady. 

Dr. and Mrs. Epps along with daughters, Dr. Jacqueline Epps Spivey (Anton Spivey) and Andrea Epps, Esq.,  joined Second Baptist in October 1987. Previously, he headed Second Baptist Church in Detroit, MI; First Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC; and Calvary Baptist Church in Haverhill, MA.

According to one member, “Mrs. Epps, a registered nurse, is very involved and a long-time member of Second’s Hand Bell Choir and Children’s Ministry. She is known as ‘the encourager’ and a supporter of all ministries.”

Dr. Epps is nationally known as an outstanding teacher and prolific preacher. He led the congregation in raising funds to preserve, restore and modernize its current sanctuary, which was built in 1926. Second Baptist was placed on the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places in 2009.

Under his leadership, the church conducts extensive outreach program to the community through its Children’s Center and Johnnie L. Cochran Jr.  Early Learning Center, recycling program and community relations support for AIDS patients at the MLK Oasis Center.

Dr. Epps serves as vice president of the United States in the Baptist World Alliance and is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA; the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc.; and the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.

Also, the church annually observes Homecoming Sunday and world-wide communion on the first Sunday in October. This year, the service is set for Sunday, October 7, at 2:30 p.m.

The public is invited to participate in World Wide Communion and the 25th Anniversary services. For information, call (213) 748-0318.
