Greater Galilee Missionary Baptist Church (GGMBC), 2432 North Teutonia Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin will hold their 90th Year Anniversary Worship Celebration at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 18. The anniversary theme is Rich Past…Richer Future In Christ scripturally based on Psalm 91:1, Philippians 3:12- 16, Colossians 2:2 and 3:16.
The dynamic guest speaker is Rev. Dr. William Shaw, former president of The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. Dr. Shaw led the nation’s largest African American religious organization for 10 years with great vision and integrity. He is also recognized across the country for his phenomenal preaching and teaching. Since 1956, Dr. Shaw has served as Pastor of the White Rock Baptist Church in Philadelphia, PA.
For 90 years, GGMBC has provided ministries for all ages to win souls for Christ and assist members to live a Christ-centered victorious life. The church will focus in the future on expanding those ministries and providing more evangelistic and community outreach programs. The inner- city church already offers a youth scholarship program, children and youth ministries, annual Career Options day that has educated over 1,600 youth, and Saturday Hot Meal Program that feeds approximately 1,200 persons a month. Pastor Johnny C. White, Jr. shared, “Greater Galilee has a rich past as trailblazers and pioneers in the central city of Milwaukee, having compassion in our outreach within the community”. He added, “But also, we look forward to a richer future in Christ Jesus through continued teaching biblical truths for spiritual growth and sustainability of our members. Colossians 3:16 reminds us to let the Word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in our hearts to the Lord”.
Pastor White and the congregation invite the public to join in this powerful, spiritually- charged open door worship celebration. The public is also welcome to attend the 90th Year Anniversary Banquet at the Bavarian Inn, 700 West Lexington Boulevard in Glendale, Wisconsin.
