The Annual Church Revival starts Sunday, July 24, at the 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., worship of Greater Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church, located at 5300 South Denker in Los Angeles. The services continue on Monday, July 25, through Friday, July 29, at 7:30 p.m.

“Our evangelist is the Rev. L. K. Curry, pastor emeritus of Immanuel Baptist Church in Chicago, who is known throughout the country as one of the finest preachers of the gospel in our time,” said Rev. Dr. Solomon L. Drake, senior pastor.

“Evangelist Curry always tells it like it is and attracts hundreds wherever he speaks. Join us for a spirit-filled week of revival and you are sure to be blessed,” he said.

Rev. Curry organized Immanuel Baptist in 1973 with 10 charter members and within a year, membership exceeded 700. Initially worshipping in a school auditorium, he led the congregation, which had grown to 1,000, in purchasing its present facility in 1974. The following year, the Immanuel Christian Academy was established to become a leadership training center for children in the Chicago area. Rev. Curry retired in 2003 after serving forty years as pastor of Immanuel.

For information about the revival, call Greater Ebenezer at (323) 759-4996.
