Wallace Temple plans remembrance service

ANDERSON — With 2013 behind, Wallace Temple A.M.E. Zion Church,1518 Forkner St., will continue a tradition of the church. This annual tradition began in the 1950s when two women of the church, Gertie Weatherly and Celane Bostic, initiated a "Remembrance and Roll Call" service.

This service will memorialize church members who died in 2013 and for those members remaining to answer to the membership roll ushering in the New Year of 2014.

Gertie Weatherly died in 1994 and Celane Bostic in 2012. Over the years their daughters, Shirley Weatherly, Carolyn Weatherly Scott, Mary Alice Bostic-Bell, Sharon Bostic-Hudson and Celena Bostic-Perry have continued to serve as the coordinators for this tradition.

Sunday, Feb. 16, during the 10 a.m. service, church members, their families and friends are invited to participate in prayer, praise and the lighting of candles for those members who died in 2013, and for others who have passed in prior years. Contributions in remembrance of them may be made during this position of the service.

As the church membership roll is called, all members and friends present will be given the opportunity to respond and offer a love gift for each year that they have been a member.

The Rev. Antwuan J. Johnson, pastor of Wallace Temple, will officiate during this service. All are invited to attend.

Information: Shirley Weatherly, 649-4610.
