Choir anniversary celebration a hit
The Combined Choir of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church (the Rev. W. D. Rivers, pastor) celebrated Anniversary No. 88 on Sunday, July 7.
The choir is under the leadership of Sis. Evelyn Bradley. Their color this year was turquoise and silver.
The choir sang melodiously under the musical direction of Deacon Joe Richardson, guitarist. Their musical selections included: I Will Bless the Lord at all Times (He's Good), My God is Awesome (led by Dea. M. Richburg), There is Power in the name Jesus (Break Every Chain) (led by Sis. Louvenia Bradley), and I'll Be Resting Easy (led by Sis. Vanessa Gethers).
Everyone enjoyed their selections.
There were several invited choirs/groups from the community to help celebrate the anniversary.
Thanks to Dea. Moses Wright for being the emcee.
The Cross Festival Committee, helping to celebrate the Fourth of July in the community, began with a walk-a-thon from the intersection of Hwy 6 and Spring Plains Road around to Spiers Landing Road and back to the Cross Community Center.
The winners included Ms. Charlene Washington (first) and Ms. Lillie Wigfall (second).
Cross Tea Party and Berkeley Male Chorus
As a part of the Fourth of July Celebration at Spiers Landing Park, attendees took part in the Cross Tea Party, which included sipping tea and eating pies as a symbolic re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party.
The Berkeley Community Male Choir sang hymns of old as a part of the celebration.
