The Lay Organization takes time out each year to recognize those that are "laborers in the field'. We honor members and others that do all they can to help build God's Kingdom. This year our honorees are Alice Duke, Joe Hardeman and our own beloved Presiding Elder Harvey G. Potts, who is also our speaker. Please come fellowship with us as we encourage one another.
The mission of First African Methodist Episcopal Church is to reconcile lost people to God, themselves, and their fellowman through Jesus Christ, just as the Son of Man came into the world to seek and save that which was lost.
We will accomplish this mission by…
Preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ
- Feeding the hungry
- Visiting and healing the sick
- Providing housing for the homeless
- Providing needed community services that are not provided by other agencies
- Educating the ignorant and spreading light and information to the uninformed
- Spreading God’s love to our fellowman
We are pleased that you are visiting our site. We believe that our site will both minister to you and assist you in ministering to the Lord. Our worship is based on a biblical pattern and we strive to maintain an "openness" to the Lord.
To minister in a way
that will be pleasing to the Lord, "decently and in order," and to assist all people in all matters of worship. "Bearing one another's burdens" is the way to accomplish this. Please feel free to use
the prayer request to make us aware of any requests you might have and in what ways we may serve you.
We hope that you will visit us again, here on the website.

Praise the Lord everybody! On behalf of the Pastor, I want to announce that Acolyte Training will begin on May 6, 2018. We are now accepting applications for this training group. Last date for names will be on April 29, 2018. Requirements are high, but the rewards are heavenly!! This training will culminate with an Installation Service.
The office of Acolyte is to inspire young men and women to dedicate and commit their lives to the service of Christ by giving of their time, talent and money for the up building of God’s kingdom. Acolytes help the pastor, help with the altar as well as the church. The word Acolyte comes from the Greek word akolouthos which means “Assistant, or Attendant”. Acolytes are willing at all times to assist the Pastor and the Minister in charge of all services. Acolytes have been part of the church in one form or another for nearly 2,000 years. Above all Acolytes are servants of God. Acolytes wear robes to symbolize the putting on the whole armour of God. Acolytes carry into worship the light, processional cross, flags, banners or Bible and assist the pastor with other duties.
In His Service,
Dr. Winston Prescott
Rev. Angela Brewster
