Home Going of Louis Alexander Jackson, Sr.
Louis Alexander Jackson, Sr., was born to Alex and Lillie Jackson on December 10,
1929, in Louisville, MS. He was an only child. He was called to rest on December 11, 2012.
Louis joined Lonely Valley CME Church in Louisville, MS at an early age. After moving to Clarksdale, MS, he joined Mt. Moriah CME Church where he served as adult Sunday school teacher, Chairman of the Trustee Board, Bible class teacher, and in various other capacities. He loved his church and lived a life of dedicated service to God and his fellow man.
On December 22, 1956, Louis married Mertha Lockett of Florence, MS. To this marriage four children were born, two daughters and two sons. Louis was a devoted husband and father. He generously and lovingly supported his family.
Louis completed his high school education at Winston County High School in Louisville, MS; his college education at Jackson State University in Jackson, MS; a Master of Science degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI; and an educational specialist degree in administration from the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS.
Louis’s professional career included science teacher at Louisville High School in Louisville, MS; science teacher at Higgins High School; principal at Higgins Junior High School; and principal at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Clarksdale, MS. He retired after 37 years of service in 1990. Louis touched the lives of many, many children. He helped parents and children whenever he could – he often said he was called to teach.
During his lifetime, Louis participated in many community, social, and professional activities which included Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., board of directors for Coahoma Opportunities, Inc., NAACP, volunteer for Boy Scouts of America, H.W. Nichols Elks Lodge, Jackson State College Alumni Association, Clarksdale Teachers Association, the National Association of Secondary Principals, and the National Science Teachers Association. He also served as a military policeman in the United States Army.
Louis leaves to cherish his memory, his loving and devoted wife, Mertha L. Jackson of Clarksdale, MS; two daughters Rose (Richard) Flenorl of Cordova, TN, and Jeanette Victoria Jackson
of Cleveland, MS; two sons, Louis Alexander (Catresa) Jackson, Jr., and Gregory L. (Romona) Jackson of Memphis, TN; one grandson, Louis Alexander Jackson, III; two granddaughters Lillie Clarissa Flenorl and Arina Victoria Jackson; and a host of nieces and nephews, in-laws, cousins, and dear friends.
Louis touched, inspired, and influenced many people in so many positive ways by his life, his words, and his kind deeds.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 17, 2012, at noon at New Covenant M.B. Church at 803 Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard in Clarksdale, MS. The eulogist is Rev. Dr. Kenneth E.

GOTV (Get Out the Vote) 
By Connectional Lay Council President, Barbara Christian Campbell

This is a reminder that the election is only a few days away, less than two weeks; however there are still things that you can do.
(1) You can deliver absentee ballots to your elderly members or those who have a handicap, and take absentee ballots to the nursing home(s) in your community.
(2) Use your church marquee to advertise Early Voting and post a number for free transportation to the poll.
(3) Send absentee ballots to students who are in college so that they can Vote. Remember to send an absentee ballot also to those who are in the armed forces.
(4) Take absentee ballots to the jail, because until they are sentenced, they are still citizens with the right to vote.
(5) Call the school and ask the counselor to remind registered students to please VOTE!
(6) Ask members who vote early to wear their “I Voted” sticker to church so that we can keep a count of those who have voted early!
(7) Volunteer in the campaign headquarters of the candidate you support. They need people to make calls, pass our flyers and post signs in the yards of those who consent. Make a Donation to your candidate, no matter how small, it still helps.
(8) Post in church bulletin the locations of voting precincts for early voting.
(9) Post sample ballots on the bulletin board and pass out sample ballots if possible.
(10) Take the required ID to the poll.

Growing old and lovin' it at Trinity CME, Memphis, Tn.

Memphis, Tenn.—In our nation, youthfulness is a cherished commodity. Consumers spend big bucks to maintain, look and act young. Although growing old is inevitable, many would just rather not entertain the thought of it.
While, there may be some naysayers that promote youthfulness as a critical ingredient in vitality, there is a congregation in Memphis that clearly demonstrated that growing old is great and it is the perfect excuse to celebrate and have fun. Well, just how old is old?
"Walking Up the King's Highway — 110 Blessed Years" was the theme driving three days of fun-filled activities for Trinity CME Church on September 21-23, 2012. There was nothing ordinary about this celebration as the church chose a different approach to rejoice.
Entertainment was the order of the evening at the Friday night's activity held in the Marriott (Thousand Oaks) Hotel's Pyramid Ballroom. The weekend was jump started with a glitzy "Celebration Gala" that featured live music, performed by Will Graves and Soul Band. The antics of Ken Lackey, comedian and MC for the evening, kept the attendees doubled over with laughter. And aging was certainly not a factor as the attendees delved into dining, fellowship and dancing.
The pitched tent, two hitched 50-gallon steel grills on wheels outfitted with umbrellas for shading, ice-filled barrels scattered across the lawn cooling bottles of water and soft drinks, an inflated air bouncer with little people performing mock trampoline acts, chefs with aprons and carrying big forks, all signaled a more casual event. The Celebration Picnic held on the church's campus hosted finger licking good eating by people who donned their 110th Anniversary Celebration T-Shirts. Games and activities were played only by the "young at heart."
The Sunday morning Celebration Service highlighted former members, pastors and affiliates of the church as the worship leader (Ms. Authurine Roddy Jones, Chicago, IL) and program participants (Melvin Jones, Kim Fleming, Sarah Smith Coleman and Marshall T. Hall) engaged the congregation in total praise. Special music and a dynamic sermon from the pastor created a spiritual "high" as members rejoiced in thankfulness for surviving a full decade beyond a century of existence. This service also celebrated the official launch of the church's newly developed Web site.
Following the Celebration Sunday dinner, the weekend's final activity was launched at the afternoon Celebration Service as the Lugerta Strong Gospel Choir performed a praise-filled concert that had everyone getting up out of their seats, standing on their feet and clapping to the beat.
Yes, growing old can and should be celebrated, especially when you're "a decade beyond.
We've come a long way, Lord, a mighty long way.
Located at 1096 Thomas Street, on Uptown's northern boundary, Trinity CME Church's celebration of its 110-year history of service to the North Memphis Community was chaired by Mrs. Cheryl Rivers and co-chaired by Mrs. Celeste Jones. The pastor, Rev. Roland M. Johnson, Jr. and its members welcome you to come by and worship. For more information and to see photos of the celebration, please visit our website at trinitycmechurchmemphis.org. You may also contact us by sending an e-mail totrinitycmememphis@yahoo.com.
