Afrocentric Sunday

This past Sunday at GSJ, we culminated the month of February with a remarkable day celebrating our heritage as a people. Led by the wonderful people of our Gospel Chorus, the congregation was encouraged to wear Afro-centric attire during our services and invited to take part in a feast called “Taste of Soul” following the 11am service. Despite the snow we received over the weekend, our attendance was reasonable and we had a joyous time in worship, praise and fellowship. During both worship experiences, the choir once again favored us with several hymns and spirituals that were rendered during a recent concert. It was a great day. Thanks to Richard Armstrong, here are some photos that captured the day.

Dr. McGhee,

It is evident that GSJ has a great pastor/preacher who is continuously allowing the Lord to use him greatly.

No wonder everyone has been asking me when am I going to get a afrocentric robe to wear in the pulpit. As usual St. John is the standard bearer and Pastor Andre A. McGhee is on the cutting edge of connection, conversion, conveyance of the power of Christ!!!!!!!!!!

Keep running,

Owens

What a beautiful edifice and a great looking congregation. Pastor McGhee you are truly a blessed man. I’m glad God exposed your ministry to me via the internet. I’ll continue to pray that your tribe will increases.
NLT Ephesians 3:20 Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. 21 May he be given glory in the church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen.

Pastor McGhee,

Greater St. John was truly blessed on Sunday. The 11am Worship service was very up lifting and the Taste of Soul Dinner was wonderful.

P.S. May God continue to bless your ministry.

Everything looks so festive and on one accord in your worship and fellowship. Everybody look so beautiful in their Afrocentic attire. God bless our African American Family as he blesses all Americans and the entire world. Thanks for sharing your day.
