City PRIDE Year-end Community Forum, Faith, Family and Fellowship Gathering
On Monday, December 28th City PRIDE, Positive Results in Dumas-Everyday, will unite with leaders from across the city and state from the faith, youth, business, creative and educational arenas to bring forth the ‘Year-end City PRIDE Community Forum, Faith and Fellowship Gathering’. The series concludes the monthly forums and fellowships which are normally set for the last Thursday in each month.
The gatheringwill take place at HMC located at Waterman and Walnut.
The program starts at 5:30pm with a community youth and family forum designated for all persons/leaders who desire to join the discussion regarding ‘positive results’ that continue to transpire in the city while also reflecting on some of the challenges that Dumas is facing that stills requires faith in God and strategic planning and uniting among all the people.
“From the murders to the mass feeding and empowerment programs beginning with the MLK Holiday Community Luncheon and Television Screening at the Dumas Community Center and HMC with Way Maker Ministries of New Orleans and The College of Aspiring Artists earlier this year, many people have joined in to bring comfort and joy to hundreds of residents in need. City PRIDE’s “Thanks for Giving” Awards and Festival Day merged to the most recent Christmas giveaway with Lisa Simmons and her program partners adding another moment of joy”, stated Rev. Arthur L. Hunt, Jr., Senior Pastor of HMC-
Hunt Memorial Cathedral of Faith.
At 7pm the Faith and Fellowship Gathering invites all spiritual, community, youth and faith leaders to unite in a time of praise, worship and thanksgiving and end the year together. Bishop Alfonso Madden will focus on a theme “Look Where He Brought Us From.” Bishop Madden recently set up the "I Am My Brother Keeper" Memorial Scholarship in honor of Kentarrious Madden, Michael Reeves, and Jeffery Morgan with the mission of reaching other young people to have productive lives through education. All ministries are invited to join and participate.
City PRIDE was proud to present the 2015 Community Servant Award to Mrs. Hattie Watts, and the Clergy Leader Award to Pastor Jasper Jackson, Jr., Founder of Harvest Time Ministries in Mitchellville.
