In support of Black History month, Commission Church of Pittsburgh dedicated an afternoon to paying tribute to the history of African Americans.
The Feb. 28 event, “Celebrating Black History Month,” took place on the North Side where members of the church and supporters gathered to pay tribute.
“As a member of Commission Church of Pittsburgh, once I got word about the program I knew I wanted to help in any way that I could. The program turned out very nice. DaMarra Underwood was my favorite segment. Her voice blew me away,” Shavone Mitchell said.
The service began with a free meal, where all attendees had the opportunity to eat lunch. Lunch consisted of chicken, fish, jambalaya, green beans, macroni and cheese, salad, and sweet potato pie. The programs then transitioned to the presentation. They kicked the program off with praise and worship, led by the lead singers of Commission Church of Pittsburgh, while also singing the Black National Anthem. Minister Andrew Lee was the host, and the opening prayer and scripture reading was delivered by Minister Dolores Thrower.
