The plans for the original Candlelight Communion Celebration to be held at First African Baptist Church, Franklin Square, are underway! The event will be held the First Sunday in December at 5:00 PM with Rev. Matthew Southall Brown, Sr. and Rev. Thurmond N. Tillman as conductors.
This will be the 55th celebration. The first Candlelight Celebration was held the Third Sunday in January at St. John Baptist Church, “The Mighty Fortress.” This unique event was introduced to Savannah by Rev. Matthew Southall Brown, Sr. during his pastorate at St. John. The service will be presented as it was 55 years ago with all original music. There is no cost for admission.
