2022 Easter Service for Antioch Missionary Baptist Church

2022 Easter Service for Antioch Missionary Baptist Church

At the beginning of 2022, our Vice President, Shirley Calahan introduced this year’s vision for our staff. The theme was “I Make The Difference.” This theme was born out of a sincere desire to go the extra mile to make a difference in the lives of the families that we serve and the community. 

When we received the devastating news that the historic edifice of Antioch MBC was in flames last week, Mr. Calahan reached out to see what he could do. There was nothing he could do to fight the fire but what we could do was to share our facilities for Morning Worship with the congregation. We remain prayerful for Pastor Gerald Dew and the Antioch Church family. We believe by faith that they will rebuild again and we are here to support in whatever way they need.
