Celebrating 115 years of ministry, Ward AME Church will hold several events to commemorate the historic milestone.
According to Pastor John E. Cager III, the activities will highlight the anniversary theme, “Called out – A Chosen Church To Be Holy” based on I Peter 2:9-10.
“Our celebration and rededication consists of three months of family-oriented, community programs developed by co-chairs Dessie Danztler, Alton Glaze and Dawn Comer,” said Cager. “We invite the public to participate in what we refer to as ‘The Ward Experience.’”
Events begin on Sunday, June 4, at 12 p.m., with “A Taste of Ward” featuring a range of dishes by local culinary legends. On Saturday, June 17, “Fun Day” takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A riverboat cruise departing from Long Beach will be offered on Sunday, August 13, at 3 p.m.
