Avery Grove AME Zion Church will host “Pack the Pew” program Sunday at 3 p.m. The guest speaker will be the Rev. Fred McNeill, pastor of Willow Spring FWB Church in Clayton, who will bring his choir and church with him and his wife, Jeanette.
“We are a church with vision,” said the Rev. Dr. Rosa Smith-Williams, pastor of Avery Grove, “for we are a multi-generational, multi-cultural, mission-minded body of believers who love God completely, love ourselves correctly, and love others unconditionally.” Rev. Dr. Smith-Williams said the church is large enough to serve you but small enough to know you and encourages members to activate their faith and gifts to be a blessing to the body of Christ.
“The purpose of ‘Pack the Pew’ Sunday,” she said, “is to remind the people that God has a powerful message and blessings for everyone. “‘Pack the Pew’ Sunday encourages our members not only to invite someone to church, but to tell them what Christ has done in their lives and how someone else can receive God’s blessings and love.”
