Many blessings have happened this past year in our church, the one for which we are most thankful is that Reverend Brenda Brown-Grooms is now our co-pastor. Pastor Brenda brings many gifts to our church. She is a wonderful preacher, an accomplished soloist and a caring pastor. She has helped us increase our ministry to the whole community, including to those who have felt that they are on the margins of society.
