Pastor Carolyn Baskin-Bell and the members of Second AME Church will observe more than a century of Christian and community service during their 110th Anniversary Celebration.

The rejoicing activities kick-off on Saturday, August 18, at 9 a.m. with an Interfaith Prayer Breakfast and continue on Sunday, August 19, at 10 a.m. with a worship service. Both events will be held in the church edifice located at 5500 S. Hoover St., in Los Angeles.

“We invite the entire L.A. community to join us as we praise God for His past blessings and look forward to continuing our mission in making a difference in the lives of all people within and outside of the church walls,” said Baskin-Bell.

The celebration theme is “Interfaith Connection: A Faith Journey Through Prayer.”  Vivian Tinsley and Regina Howard-Johnson are the anniversary co-chairs.

The guest speaker is the Rev. Dr. Barry Settle and his wife, the Rev. Rochelle Settle, will be the guest psalmist at the breakfast on Saturday and the Rev. Vicki Hayden Lee, associate minister of the Institutional AME Church in Chicago, Illinois, will preach at Sunday worship service.

Second AME was founded in 1908 and throughout its history; the church has been involved in the spiritual and social life of the South Los Angeles community. In addition to a vibrant ministry, Second AME operates an active outreach program that offers free meals and personal care items to those in need.

“We firmly believe that helping those in need will help to shape a better future for the less fortunate,” said Baskin-Bell.
