Pacific Mount Olive Church of God in Christ (PMO) will celebrate 95 years of service to God and the community on Sunday, May 20, at 3:30 p.m., in the main sanctuary located at 1385 East 21st Street in Los Angeles.
According to Superintendent Milton L. Joyner, pastor, the keynote speaker will be the Supt. Roosevelt Tuggle, pastor of the Open Door COGIC of Monrovia. The program will also feature music by the PMO choir, the Ray-Stewart Family, and special guest, the Farrell Family.
PMO was organized in 1923 in a house prayer meeting with Elder Johnny Robins named as the first pastor. Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, founder of the COGIC denomination, assigned Bishop E. B Stewart to lead the congregation and he served as pastor from 1931 to 1969. Supt. Joe C. Brewster became the pastor in 1969 and headed the church for the next 30 years.
“The members of the PMO church are proud of the heritage of the great leaders that the Lord has provided,” said Supt. Joyner.
“We extend a warm welcome to the public, former members, and friends to come and commemorate this historic celebration with us,” added Anthony L. Spence, chairman.
