  • In 1954 the sanctuary was constructed.
  • On May 15, 1955 the first service was held in the sanctuary under the direction of Rev. Charles Simpson
  • Many great activities and ministry that benefited the community were done for years until the church began to experience a period of decline and economic challenge.
  • On December 25, 2011 Rev. Semaj Y. Vanzant, Sr. became the senior pastor of this ministry. He was joined in ministry by the associate pastor, Rev. Linda Truitt.
