After a yearlong celebration, Trinity Baptist Church plans to conclude their 100th anniversary observance with a gala banquet and closing worship service.

According to Pastor Alvin Tunstill, Jr., the banquet takes place on Friday, November 10, at 7 p.m., at the Westin Los Angeles Hotel, 5400 W. Century Blvd., in Los Angeles.

“Dress up and invite your family and friends to come with you and enjoy a delicious meal, fine entertainment and beautiful fellowship in a lovely atmosphere,” said Tunstill, who added that ticket reservations are available calling the church office at (323) 735-0044.

The closing worship service is set for Sunday, November 12, at 10 a.m., in the edifice located at 2040 W. Jefferson Blvd., in Los Angeles. Bishop Lester L. Williams, chief prelate of The Community Churches of Christ International and senior pastor of the Community Baptist Church of Christ in Jamaica, New York, will be the guest preacher.

Called to the ministry in 1976, Williams has headed Community Baptist since 1988. In 1997, he was installed as a State Overseer of the Eastern New York area and in 1999, he was consecrated as a bishop. In addition, he is an adjunct professor at Unification Theological Seminary in New York City and serves on the faculty at New Life School of Theology in Amityville, New York.

Williams, who is a recording artist as well, received his Master of Religious Education degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and his Doctor of Ministry degree from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. Also, Williams is the author of “Pastoring in the Shadows” and “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”
