Agape Church of Los Angeles will present two family-oriented events during the holiday season. According to Bishop Craig A. Worsham, senior pastor, Agape will host Christmas Eve Worship on Monday, Dec. 24, at 6:30 p.m., at their sanctuary located at Consolidated Plaza, 3725 Don Felipe Drive in Los Angeles. Sherwood Sledge will be the guest psalmist.
“We encourage the public to celebrate the birth of Christ at Agape. Your entire family will enjoy the unique vocal talents of Mr. Sledge, who is renowned throughout the West Coast dramatic musical abilities,” said Worsham.
The holiday celebration continues on Monday, Dec. 31, at 12 noon with a New Year’s Eve Service. The theme is “Crossing Over From Better to Greater” based on Ephesians 3:20.
“The dynamic duo of Bishop T. Larry Kirkland, Sr. and Lady Rose Neale will bring a spirit-filled message and share uplifting music to prepare you for a victory in 2019,” Worsham said.
Throughout his 50+ years in the ministry, Kirkland has led thousands to Christ with his powerful, yet practical sermons. A retired AME bishop, he served nearly 20 years as pastor of Brookins Community AME Church in Los Angeles.
Neale is a leading gospel artist and popular performer at churches and various venues in the Southland. Her repertoire ranges from classical hymns to intricate anthems to contemporary gospel music.
Following the worship, Worsham said a free brunch will be held in the fellowship hall. To learn more, visit agapela.org or call (323) 295-5571.
