Bethel AME Church-Pompano celebrates annual Men’s Day

By Johnny L. McCray, Jr., Esquire

     Each year Bethel AME Church-Pompano, located at 405 N.W. Third Ave. (“Esther Rolle Avenue), celebrates Men’s Day the fourth Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013, at 11 a.m. Bethel, pastored by Rev. Eddy Moise, Jr., Senior Pastor, will again hold a special service to honor the achievement and commitment of men to their families, church, and community.

    The selected theme for this year — “Christian Men: Transforming Lives in the Spirit”, will be appropriately accentuated by a relevant word preached by guest messenger, Rev. Dr. Mack King Carter, Pastor Emeritus, The New Mount Olive Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale.

    In addition to challenging men to endeavor to transform lives in the spirit of Jesus Christ, Dr. Carter is expected to challenge men to solidify their place as leaders in the family, church, and community. The Men’s Day leadership team will ensure that brethren from several other churches over South Florida is in charge of the service.

    The Edward Waters’ College Concert Choir will perform during this special service and the 2012 MEAC and Florida Classic Champions the Bethune-Cookman University Wildcats Football Team will be at this special service.

    Highlights of the special day will include presentations to male members of Bethel and the local community in honor and recognition of their outstanding service to Bethel and the local community.

 Anti-Violence & Anti-Bullying Community Forum

    Leading up to Men’s Day, Bethel  is proud to host and sponsor as part of its celebration Real Talk: Transforming Our Community Away From Violence And Bullying Forum. In keeping with the Men’s Day theme, Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013, 6:30 p.m., a town hall type meeting with a target audience of all ages will be held.

    On Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013, at 6 p.m., Bethel will present the Edward Waters College Concert Choir in full concert. This event promises to be spiritually uplifting because when this 40 member student choir performs, there is sure to be some hand-clapping and foot-stomping in the audience.

    All are invited to each of these events. For more information, please contact the church office at (954) 943-6220.
