Senior pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., Rev. Raphael Warnock will be the guest preacher at the West Tisbury Congregational Church on Sunday, August 17, at 10 a.m.
This will be the sixth consecutive summer that Mr. Warnock has preached at the church. His advocacy surrounding social justice issues and the mission of black churches carries on in the tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
If previous summers are any indication it will be a full house, so arrive early to get a seat.
On Saturday, the day before the service, the church will host a fitting welcome for its visitor from Georgia, the church’s fifth annual Peach Festival from noon to 4 p.m.
