Quinn to mark
Quinn Memorial AME Church located at 515 North St., Steubenville, will celebrate its annual Genesis Day program on Aug. 28 at 4 p.m. 515 North Street, Steubenville.
Genesis Day is a spiritual blessing day to prepare the congregation, subdivided into 12 tribes, for a special blessing from God for the upcoming church conference year that begins Oct. 1.
The Rev. Ronald R. Eskridge, church pastor, explained that "prior to his passing on to glory, God's servant Jacob (Israel) bestowed an absolute spiritual, prophetic blessing on the 12 tribes of Israel in Genesis 49:28. This prophetical blessing is a significant, prosperity blessing from heaven granted to each tribe entering the Promised Land and included a comparative (obscure) reference to the advent of Jesus, our Messiah. Quinn Church stands on God's prophetic spiritual blessing as the congregation prays for God's Holy Spirit to lead and guide us to prosperity, unity and love for our church family and the Steubenville community as a whole."
The co-leaders for each tri-tribunal tribe captains are Ilana Chester, Josephine Collins, Sheryl Petteway and Mamie Miller. The executive team supporting the Genesis Day program consists of Jacqueline L. Gibson, Lisa Thomas and Dr. Patricia Fletcher.
The guest speaker for the program will be the Rev. Dr. Alphonse Allen Jr., senior pastor of Allen Temple AME Church in Cincinnati.
The program is open to the public.
