The Year
"The Season for Turning, Forgiving and Healing"
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Pastoral Anniversary Tribute from Gov. John Bell Edwards

Pastoral Anniversary Tribute from Gov. John Bell Edwards
One day before a global shutdown due to what we now know as, Covid19, Gov. John Bell Edwards, took time out of his busy schedule to congratulate our very own, Pastor Southall, on his 31st Pastoral Anniversary. Due to the global pandemic, all celebratory events were cancelled and this video was never shown. One year later, although, we are still feeling the affects from the global pandemic, one thing has remained true, God's love for his people is unconditional. On behalf of Gov. John Bell Edwards and the First Emanuel Church Family, we would like to say, Happy Anniversay Pastor Southall, thank you for everything.
