God’s Pleasant Community Church celebrates 27 years

January 17, 2014


The angels in the heavens danced and the saints present on Sunday afternoon at God’s Pleasant Community Church, under the leadership of Rev. Robert Briggs and Minister Martha Kimber, rejoiced and clapped halleluiah to the sound of music rendered from the Choir of Greater Temple of Faith (top photo) and the Angel Choir (bottom photo) of God’s Community Church. Other choirs participating in program were from Pleasant Grove and Apostle of God. This 27th Year Church Anniversary began with the founding of the church by Pastor Richard Crawford who retired in 1997. Pastor Robert Briggs was elected the church’s next pastor. Pastor Briggs served many years as an associate pastor at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of the late R. L. Lathan. Since assuming the pastorate, Rev Briggs has remodeled the church and upgraded the church’s dining facility. And during the summer months, church services are conducted outside and church members worship in the street. Asked what his vision was, going forward for the church, Pastor Briggs stated: “I would like to build a modern church in this neighborhood that houses a community center and recreation hall with shelter for the homeless.”

Congratulations on 27 Years!DSC_1406
