A spirit of jubilation is spreading throughout Agape Church of Los Angeles as the ministry approaches its first anniversary.

To mark the occasion, the congregation will hold a celebratory service on Sunday, August 12, at 11 a.m., in their worship center at Consolidated Plaza, 3725 Don Felipe Dr., in Los Angeles.

The theme is “Building God’s Church the Bible Way” based on Acts 2. Following the worship, a Members Appreciation Luncheon will take place in the church’s Garden Room.

Praising God for Agape of L.A.’s success, Bishop Craig A. Worsham said, “We have been blessed to worship at the Historic Consolidated Plaza in Baldwin Hills and since our first service, we have experienced spiritual and economic growth. As the senior pastor, I am indebted to our members and the Agape staff for their dedication to the mission of our church to build communities by building people.”

Some of the ministry’s ongoing activities include hosting neighborhood resource fairs, sponsoring a food and clothing outreach for people in need, and collaborating with the L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti’s initiative to house homeless veterans.

Also, the church established the Betty Jo Lyons Scholarship Guild to provide financial assistance to college students. In December, Agape L.A. will hold a holiday toy distribution in Jim Gilliam Park in Baldwin Village.

As for the future, the fellowship aims to develop affordable housing units, implement the Logos Bible Institute and expand their youth programs.

“We are thankful for our blessings and progress thus far and know that God has even greater plans for Agape Church. Everyone is invited to join us as we celebrate this important milestone in the life our church,” added Worsham.
