60th Anniversary Monthly Celebration - January 26, 2019
Guest speaker Pastor Willie S. Lee Jr. (1976 - 1979). Pastor W.S. Lee Jr. served as Pastor from 1976-1979. Pastor Lee’s emphasis was on the family unit. He was particularly concerned about the children and youth, and the Youth department flourished under his leadership. A youth choir was started and many youth came to make their commitment to Christ. His love for music expanded into the community with the annual presentation of Handel’s Messiah under the direction of Sister Muriel Wheeler. Because of this effort a treasured friendship with the First Baptist Church and St. Mark’s AME Church, both of whom willingly shared their sanctuaries with Corona during its renovation. He also emphasized good stewardship, and this resulted in wise investments, which subsequently funded the renovation of the church.
