Rejected Stone Christian Fellowship will mark nearly two decades of Christian and community service during its 18th anniversary celebration on Sunday, October 17, at 3:30 p.m.

The outdoor worship service will be held on the church’s campus located at 4700 Avalon Blvd in Los Angeles, said Pastor Walter Davis, who shared that recipients of the annual Barbara Ann Thomas Award will be recognized.

“Usually, we salute individuals who have rendered exceptional service to the church and community. However, this year we will pay tribute to loved ones lost to the COVID-19 virus or related medical causes,” said Davis.


“We invite the community to submit photos, which will be posted on our ‘Never Forgotten Beloved Ones’ memorial display board at the event.”

In past years, Rejected Stone members have honored a range of people including Alice Boston of the Goshen K. International Outreach, activist and entreprenuer Orlean Dubuclet, mediator and youth advocate Ward Wesley, and entertainer, community leader and business owner William “Bill” Foster.

Foster had a decades-long music career. He traveled the country as a member of The Medallions R&B group. He was very close with singer Etta James for whom he wrote the song, “I’d Rather Go Blind.” Foster also opened one of the first sober living facilities in Los Angeles, Chains of Love, in 1987.

The church also supports young people in the congregation and the community. Davis and the Rejected Stone congregation have sponsored 30-to-50 young people and guardians on 13 annual youth education trips to instructional and cultural destinations for a number of years.
