Welcome Rev. Dr. Charles Boayue

The Rev. Dr. Charles Boayue’s first Sunday to join us as Senior Pastor of Birmingham and Berkley First is Sunday, July 10. That day he will be preaching in the Birmingham Sanctuary at the 9:30 a.m. service. After worship services, there will be a welcome reception for him and his wife, Elizabeth, at Birmingham First in Fellowship Hall. Please join us to meet Charles, Elizabeth, and their family: son, Charles III, Charles’ mother-in-law, Cecelia Dunkin, and her grandson, Solomon Dunkin, and welcome them to our church family.

As part of Charles’ plan to get to know the congregation, answer questions, and ask for input on the vision for Birmingham and Berkley First going forward, he would like to participate in as many small group gatherings as possible over the summer months. The Staff-Parish Relations Committee is looking for members willing to host a dinner, dessert, afternoon tea or other gathering of members, friends, or neighbors for him to get acquainted. If you are willing to host, please contact Carol Rillema at 248-851-6438 (home phone) or crillema@gmail.com with the type of event, the number of guests, and dates you are available to host after July 10. Thank you for considering this opportunity.
