Black Pride Celebration & Community Worship Service
Rev. Delores P. Berry, "an out of the closet Christian Evangelist who Preaches, Prays, and Sings."
from the Weekly News, August 6, 2006
Indiana Black Pride is coming up August 10-13, and Jesus MCC will be part of it! We'll have a booth at the Celebration at Watkins Park
on August 12 from noon to 7:00 pm. Watkins Park is at 2360 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. St.
Community Worship Service
The culminating event of Black Pride will be a Community Worship Service, here at Jesus MCC on August 13
at 10:45 am. Our special guest speaker for that day will be Rev. Delores P. Berry.
Rev. Berry is an Evangelist and vocalist in the Metropolitan Community Churches. A former Christian Methodist Episcopal
minister, she was ordained by the MCC in 1983. If you haven't heard her preach before, you're in for a treat. To say that she's dynamic is an understatement!
Along with our special guest and special music, we'll have a soul food fellowship immediately following the service. The main dish
and soft drinks will be provided, and the entire congregation is encouraged to bring a favorite side dish or a dessert as we welcome Indiana Black Pride to Jesus MCC. If you're not a "regular" at Jesus
MCC, do not bring anything -- please be our guest!
Note that Rev. Berry will be preaching at all services on August 13, so you can hear her message no matter which service you attend.
