Pastor George A. Moore, Jr. and the members of St. Philip Monumental A.M.E. Church, located at 1112 Jefferson Street, will be celebrating our 149th Church Anniversary starting Tuesday, June 3, 2014 through Sunday, June 8, 2014. The theme for our celebration is: “We are Deeply Rooted in our Past, but Pressing on towards Our Strong and Vigorous Future.” The key scripture for the celebration comes from Colossians 2:7-Let your roots grow down into Him and draw up nourishment from Him, so you will grow in faith, strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with thanksgiving for all he has done.
Our celebration begins with nightly evening services starting at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 3rd with our guest speaker from First Bryan Baptist Church, Rev. Aaron M. James, Sr. and Wednesday, June 4th, our guest speaker will be Rev. Charles Purnell from Bethel A.M.E. Church. Thursday, June 5th will highlight the Sons of St. Philip Monumental A.M.E. Church, featuring guest speaker Rev. John Morse, pastor of Pleasant Grove A.M.E. Church, Hinesville, GA. The evening will also feature Rev. Anthony Scott, Rev. Terry Alexander, and Rev. Earl Perkins as program participants.
Saturday, June 7th will be our Youth Day Celebration from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The activities will include a Sunday School lesson and review, a Talent Show with Karaoke, a Quiz Bowl and a visit from J. Carter, grandson of former President Jimmie Carter. Lunch will also be provided.
The anniversary events will culminate on Sunday, June 8th starting at 9:00 a.m. with the rededication of the historic church marker at the former church site on Turner Blvd. (formerly Hull Street). After the rededication service we will caravan back to the church. Our Morning Worship Service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Our own Rev. Dr. Jeffery Cooper will bring the message.
