     The South Florida Community and congregates of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) denomination is cordially invited to attend the 253rd Birthday Celebration of the late Renown Bishop Richard Allen, founder of the first African-American Protestant Movement in America.

    The AME Church was founded in 1787 in Philadelphia.

They left to form their own church and the history of the A.M.E. church is now a vital religious institution that began from slavery serving churches all over the world including North and South America, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and India.

    The Processional will begin with the Clergy, Community Leaders, Choirs and Youth as the presentation of flags setting the tone for this worship experience.
