Pastor Charles E. Holmes and the congregation of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, 4801 W. Capitol Drive, observed the church’s 61st Anniversary on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. “Let the Circle Be Broken.” The scripture background was taken from the Book of Isiah 55:3 “I Will Make an Everlasting Covenant with You.” The late Rev. Cornelius Lampkin founded and organized Shiloh Baptist Church on May 16, 1954, with the motto: “Go into my vineyard and work.” Sister Mary Boyd read the history of Shiloh and Sister Bernice Tillman made brief remarks, followed by an Expression of Praise to the music of “4 God We Move” by Shiloh’s Praise Dancers. The afternoon anniversary sermon was preached by Pastor William Robbins of Bethel Baptist Church. The anniversary committee chairperson was Sister Maggie L. Williams and Sister Mary Boyd was the anniversary co-chairperson. Rev. Charles E. Holmes was selected in March 2015 to be the sixth pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church.
