Dear Church Family Members and Friends,
We invite you to join us at Hopkins Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church for our 150h Anniversary Celebration August 31st – September 2nd. This historical event is not only a milestone anniversary; we are in the home stretch of liquidating our mortgage that was required to complete the renovations on the church several years ago.
Our theme is “Celebrating 150 Years of Christian Ministry.” Several events are planned to allow us to fellowship and celebrate this special moment. Buncombe County Commissioner Alfred Whitesides, Jr. will be our guest speaker Saturday, September 1st at our banquet to be held at the YMI Cultural Center and on Sunday, September 2nd we will have a special afternoon service.
We have enclosed a sheet detailing the schedule of events, our goal for this year, and how you may contribute to help liquidate the mortgage. You may help by making a monetary contribution, placing a business ad, in memory of or personal ad in our 150th Anniversary Celebration souvenir book. The deadline to submit ads is August 1, 2018.
We hope you can fellowship with us to celebrate this special milestone.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Herbert Grant,
Mrs. Kimberly Wilson, Chairman
Mr. Alex Webster, Co-Chairman
