The Mary M. Kidd Women’s Missionary Society of Brookins-Kirkland Community AME Church held a spirit-filled Annual Missionary Day on June 23. The theme was “This Is Us: We Are Called to Strengthen Our Faith Through Ministry” based on Philippians 2:1-5.

Pastor Mary S. Minor and WMS president Audrey Fletcher welcomed the Rev. Noella Austin Buchanan as the guest preacher. Buchanan delivered a powerful word entitled, “Draw Me Nearer,” where she encouraged the congregation to consecrate themselves to be closer to God.

Also, Jan McKnight received the “Outstanding Missionary Award” for her leadership in organizing the annual clothes giveaway, coordinating outreach to local women’s shelters and assisting with WMS administration. Dorothea Young served as the program chair.


Brookins-Kirkland is located at 3719 W. Slauson Ave., in Los Angeles. For information, call (323) 296-5610.
