Oakwood University Church Celebrates 40 Years

  Oakwood University Church Celebrates 40 years in Current Edifice by Pastor Paul Goodridge  September 3, 1977 will long be remembered in the history of the Oakwood University Church, as on this date, the grand opening for its new, palatial 3,000 seat worship facility commenced.  Pastor Eric C. Ward, then Senior Pastor of the Oakwood College Church (now Oakwood University Church), led church members, Oakwood College faculty, and students in the ceremonial march from Ashby Auditorium, its former venue of worship, to the newly constructed Oakwood University Church building.  Ward, accompanied by several dignitaries including Pastor Charles E. Dudley, President of the South Central Conference of Seventh-day Adventists; Calvin B. Rock, Ph.D., D.Min., President of Oakwood College; and Joe Daley, Mayor of Huntsville, AL, cut the ribbon to the church and ushered in a new era for Oakwood University and the church.  Forty years later, on September 9, 2017, Carlton P.

The fortieth anniversary celebration began at 9:15 a.m. with a special Sabbath School Program featuring historical reflections by Mervyn Warren, Ph.D., D.Min, son-in-law of Pastor Calvin Moseley, first black pastor of the church, along with the Lesson Study being presented by former Associate Pastors, Michael Harpe, David Lee, Micah Weech, Toussaint Williams, Ph.D., Bob Mounter and Charles Tapp, D.Min.

New Life Church-Health Ministries of Huntsville, Alabama

New Life Church-Health Ministries of Huntsville, Alabama sponsored its first community health fair “For the Health of It” on Sunday, September 10, 2017. Medical professionals and other vendors offered biometric screenings, medical consultations, healthy nutrition options, mental and physical wellness testing/consultation for adults and children, free food/clothing and more. The fair was for everyone, but the emphasis was on getting kids active. So in the spirit of child obesity month, 41 bicycles were given to children from the community and the Alabama Mentor Foster Care system. "Health is Wealth; you can have all the money in the world, but if you don't have good health then you can't enjoy it." The donations of bicycles came from New Life Church members and friends. In addition, funds were donated to secure safety helmets.  Finally, twelve additional bicycles will be given to children in the community during the Christmas holiday season.   Written/Submitted by – Derrick L.

“MISSION2MEMPHIS” FREE HEALTH CLINIC (More Pics Inside)

“MISSION2MEMPHIS” FREE HEALTH CLINIC On June 17-18, 2017, the Word of Life Seventh-day Adventist church partnered with Remote Area Medical (RAM™)—the largest provider of mobile medical clinics in the country delivering free medical, dental, and vision care to underserved and uninsured individuals, children and families.  The target areas were the Frayser and Memphis communities in Tennessee. This was Word of Life’s first extension clinic, a part of its “Mission2Memphis” outreach. Church members joined together for prayer, planning, and promotion. It was evident that God provided, the Holy Ghost presided, and Jesus was pleased. Over 200 Volunteers were involved over the two days.  Approximately 50% of the patients received vision assistance with 46.6% and 30.5% receiving dental and medical services respectively.  All in all, God helped to lift and love on 383 patients, and provide $114, 403 in services. Two ladies drove almost 7 hours from Oklahoma arriving on Friday before setup was complete to be the first ones in line. While the numbers tell of the Clinic’s success, the immeasurable impact on the Community told the story.  Comments included: "Pastor, all of your members are so kind and helpful. You all have gone above and beyond," said a RAM™ volunteer; a patient stated, “I got all eleven of my teeth pulled. Now I can afford to get dentures!” Another patient said while leaving the Clinic, "I can SEE!" The need for more outreach ministries persists as the exit surveys confirmed, and “Mission2Memphis outreach is committed to following up to address the interests of the community. by Linda Anderson Dr. Fred Batten, Jr., DMin, pastor Word of Life, Memphis TN Dr. Christal Hall, DDS and LaShay Brown, NCMA serve the community.
