Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church in Pulaski, Tennessee is a small congregation where Pastor Michael Anthony Harpe and wife, Selita Harpe, serve. The church is known in the community for its blue doors, but the members of the church have been praying for the Holy Spirit’s help to live up to its name, “Philadelphia,” which means “Brotherly Love.”

On Saturday, October 29, 2016, we hosted a community day for our neighbors in the Washington Heights community across the street from our church.

We provided free blood pressure/glucose checks and chair massages. And gave away free socks, clothes for babies, toddlers, women and men, including canned soup and applesauce. The kids enjoyed, popcorn, snacks, water and juice drinks. We distributed health information, truth filled literature and prayed individually with many participants.

A good number of people came out and took advantage of our ministry. We fellowshipped, made new friends in the community, and shared “Brotherly Love.” We thank the leaders: community services (Linda Jones) and health ministries (Bill and Louise Daniels). Also, kudos to the medical volunteers, members, helpers, and Washington Heights management for partnering with us. Please keep us in prayer as we continue to allow the Holy Spirit to use us.
