First Lady Michelle Obama delivers the keynote address at the 49th Quadrennial Session of the General Conference of the AME Church in June 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee. She told the crowd to that church is more than attending Sunday worship. She said, “Church is a 7-day activity.” She also encouraged church members to attend school board and other meetings and to integrate church programs with the programs of the local community.
