Trinity CME presents 'The 12 Tribes of Israel'
Toccoa GA—Trinity CME of Toccoa, GA, Rev. Ricky S. Hammond, pastor, kicked off its spring fundraiser with the presentation of The Twelve Tribes of Israel program. Every member of the church was systematically recruited to participate, resulting in an awesome time for everyone as well as their best fundraiser of the conference year. The members both in the congregation and those participating in the skit wore afgans, caftans, and other African attire. They also sat in groups under flags representing their respective tribe.
The tribe of Naphtali, consisting of Sis. Stephanie Green (captain), Sis. Carmelita Hammond (coordinator), Sis. Elaine Tobias, Sis. Estelle Jones, Sis. Hazel Jones, and Sis. Winnie Jarrett, raised the most funds and celebrated by screaming, shouting, and moving in a way resembling the holy dance. Captains Sis. Mary McCurdy and Arnethia Tate came in 2nd and 3rd respectively. To be fair, Rev. Hammond made himself a member of each tribe through donations and attached himself to the tribe with the least funds to boost their offering.
Rev. and Mrs. Hammond were excited from the start to bring this interesting and educational program to Trinity; and because of its success members are already talking about next year’s program. Rev. Darryl Johnston of Dear Court CME was the guest speaker. To God be the Glory!
