In a play on Super Bowl LIII, Pastor Carolyn Baskin-Bell and the members of Second AME Church will host Super Sunday Worship on Feb. 3, at 10 a.m., in their sanctuary located at 5500 S. Hoover St., in Los Angeles.
The guest preacher will be Bishop Clement W. Fugh, presiding prelate of the Fifth Episcopal District of the AME Church. He will expound on the theme, “Worshipping, Witnessing and Working by the Power of the Holy Spirit,” which is based on John 20:19-21and Acts 2:1-21.
“Sunday is Consecration and Commitment Sunday at Second and Bishop Fugh comes to preach a Holy Spirit-filled message during this Pentecost Season, a time of spiritual renewal and revival celebrated throughout the Fifth Episcopal District,” said Baskin-Bell.
“Our objective is to present ourselves for the sacred work of serving the Almighty God. The Super Sunday worship is also an opportunity for the family and community to join us in this divine encounter,” she added.
