Back to school event July 19

The Community Back 2 School Explosion will be held on July 19, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wrens Chapel Recreation Field, with speaker Youth Minister Mitchell Johnson.

“Our goal is to not only meet the practical needs of persons attending (school supplies) but also the spiritual needs as well,” Wrens Chapel AME’s Jerlyn D. Smith-Hudson said. “Mitchell has a passion for influencing the younger generation to grow in God’s love and to spread that love to the individuals they come into contact with on a daily basis.”

Johnson was born in Birmingham, Ala., in 1989. He relocated to Harlem in 1997, where he attended school and graduated from Harlem High School in 2008. He has received his bachelor’s degree in management and is serving as the youth and children’s minister at Wrens United Methodist Church in Wrens, where he currently resides.

“Mitchell has a mission to help break down the walls that are supported by traditions and religious views, that often cause believers to lose sight that embracing Jesus Christ’s grace and love is where our Christian faith should be rooted,” Smith-Hudson said. “‘For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.’ John 1:17”

Rev. Dr. Cassandra Hill will be the host pastor.
