The Kwanzaa Appeal happens simultaneously with our major first and second quarter activities such as the anniversary of the Institute, Kwanzaa/First Fruits, Martin Luther King Jr. birthday and Supporters Day (Black History Month).

November 2 is the anniversary of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. and the birthday of National Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. Minister Lawrance Lee Evans has asked that all gifts go to First Community Interfaith Institute Inc.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

= If you are in the Rochester area please pick up a copy of the September 12 edition of the Challenger Community News. On page 2 is a beautiful article that summed up the legacy of this great man. I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
