The Lithonia church is combining its annual brotherhood and sisterhood events, usually held separately, into a single weekend this year for maximum benefit.
The church’s Creative Care and Young Adult ministries are co-hosting a Garden Gathering Meal with music and poetry on Sept. 14.
The buffet-meal fund-raiser, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature vegetables and produce grown in the church’s community garden.
The weekend’s theme is “Being We: FAC Men & Women Committed and Working Together.”
On Sept. 15, events from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. include a relationship workshop, Youth Interactive Exercises, a potluck brunch, and a book chat for “I Wish I Had a Red Dress” by Pearl Cleage.
The Brotherhood/Sisterhood Weekend culminates with a “God Unite Us!” Sunday worship service on Sept. 16 at 10 a.m.
Ministers Melva Sampson and Daniel Kelley will lead the service, and the FAC Music Ministry and Tamba Issa dance ministry team will perform.
The special weekend celebration is open to the public and visitors are welcomed.
