St. Mark AME to celebrate 145 years of ministry and service April 13th

April 17, 2014

St. Mark AME Church, located at 1616 W. Atkinson Ave., will celebrate 145 years of ministry and service on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.
The Sunday morning celebratory message will be preached by Bishop Reginald Jackson, pastor of St. Matthew AME Church in Orange, New Jersey.
During Bishop Jackson’s pastorate at St. Matthew, more than 2800 persons accepted Christ or joined the church, including over 250 children and youth. Because of the church’s growth a new edifice was built in 1985.
Continued growth led to the construction of a new Family Life Center built in 2002.
Giving increased from $50,000 to almost $2,000,000 a year supporting more than thirty ministries to meet the needs of both, church and community, as well as NIDA, the church’s non-profit organization.
Pastor Jackson encouraged the congregation to adopt the motto, “The servant church of the Oranges,” which is open seven days a week.
The entire Milwaukee community is invited to come and hear the inspiring and motivational message Bishop Jackson will share with Milwaukee and the members of St. Mark AME Church on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Rev. Darryl Williams is pastor.
