Message from our Pastor:

“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. “But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!

April showers bring May flowers! I am looking forward to the cultivation and pruning of new opportunities for outreach in the community! I am ignited with the tenacity and the willing spirit of our new members! They have graced their services with excellence and pinnacle work for kingdom building! It is good to have new talent in the church. I believe it takes all types of people to build a strong foundation! We must learn to embrace each other on this Christian journey.

My heart was overjoyed when the Youth in Motion celebrated their first choir anniversary! A choir that was formed from a conversation at the dinner table during our honor roll outreach! Much congrats to all the members and special congratulations to Naima Smith and Laniya Harris for their outstanding leadership!

I am excited to be taking the honor roll students out for their third quarter report cards! This semester we have 15 students that will be attending! I am ecstatic that 4 of the students received principal honor roll: Bridgette Colbert, Kennedy Smith, Naima Smith, Candace Anderson, 2 of the students have been inducted into the Junior Honor Society: Jaylen Johnson and Kamara Simms. For the final quarter, I am hosting a cookout for the honor students and their parents in Pasadena, Maryland.

We are One: Beneath the Cross” is the guiding theme for the more than 1,200 members of the Baltimore-Washington Conference when they gather for their Annual Conference Session on Wednesday, May 30, through Friday, June 1, at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Lesa Lindsay, Lay member to the Annual Conference will be attendance.

On May 17th, Cameron will be leaving St. Thomas More Preparatory School to spend the summer in Clinton. We are proud that he was able to achieve the Dean’s list the entire year in his tenure. He is actively looking for employment for the summer.

Gracefully Submitted,

Pastor Gay

Rev. Gay Green-Carden
