Black History observance planned
Special to The Post-Searchlight
Gregory Lamar Hines, pastor of Kingdom Harvest Fellowship Church of Attapulgus, will speak on the theme of “Milestones and Living Legends” at the First African Baptist Church observance of Black History Month on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 3 p.m.
African-American nonagenarians (90 to 99 years old) and centenarians (100 years old or older) of the Bainbridge-Decatur County community will be recognized and honored.
Hines grew up in Whigham and for 25 years sang with his brothers in “The Harmony Quintet.” They produced and recorded two compact discs and traveled throughout Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, praising God and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
He was ordained deacon at St. Clair Primitive Baptist Church under the pastorate of Rev. Jimmy Simmons, and in 2010 he accepted the call to preach the word of God.
Hines graduated from Cairo High School in 1992. He resides in Cairo and is married to Linda K. Stephen Hines. They have two daughters.
The public is invited to attend this observance and enjoy the repast following the service.
