It has been a year like no other. Who would have thought that over one year into COVID we would still be wearing masks and social distancing? Although things are gradually improving, we still have a way to go.  

We are also heartbroken by the loss of our patriarch Rev. Perry A Smith III. But we are “Still Standing”! We stand on God’s promises and know better days are coming! We thank God for those family members who have been on the sick list but are still making it through!

This year we are going VIRTUAL!! If you are a baby boomer like me, this does not come naturally. My audio is never on at the right time, or I have my camera on by mistake. Thank goodness we have millennials and Gen X and Z around to help. (Millennials are Gen Y – yes, it’s confusing).

We have fun events planned and are anxiously awaiting your presence! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to myself, Mildred or the comments section below if you have questions!

See you next week – July 9th, 10th and 11th!

Edwina

Have you…

We’re Still Standing!!

I’m sorry family, I completely missed the livestream information regarding the services for Perry. The information is below, and the first service is actually happening right now. You can view the livestream on the church’s facebook page. You do not have to have a facebook account to view.

Our Patriarch, Perry Anderson Smith, III, has finished his incomparable journey.

He lived a life of service to others. He was a leader in the civil rights movement, a pastor for 52 years at First Baptist Of North Brentwood and a lecturer at Howard University School of Divinity.

He was a husband, a brother, our oldest cousin, a mentor and confidant to many. But most of all he was a friend of God.

We will miss him dearly.

Hi Family,

COVID-19 is still an unfortunately reality this year. As a result, we would like to do something to acknowledge, as well as honor, our rich heritage — while remaining safe! Physical contact as a family still isn’t the best option this year but, we still want to get your thoughts, suggestions, and ideas on what can be done. Please think outside of the box and consider anything that can be done safely and/or virtually (games, Zooms, Social, Group calls, etc). We are totally open to your creative ideas!!!

Please share the word with other family members!!! Thank you in advance for your understanding and assistance!!! Stay well and safe!! 🙏🏾❤️💯
