Remembering Minister Akilah Ife Evans (Gwendolyn Vivian Evans)

On Friday July 3, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. will host a benefit to raise funds for our upcoming trip to the 36th Annual FCII Festival next week in Elyria, Ohio. The benefit, subtitled "A Tribute to a Cultural Warrior," will take place at 219 Hamilton Street in Rochester at 6 PM.  The benefit will feature musical performances by Brother Johnny Brown and his daughter So-So, along with the poetry of Brother Jurrell Ellis II.

On June 26, 2012 Minister Akilah, the wife of Minister Lawrance Lee Evans, joined the ancestors after a long bout with cancer. She was laid to rest on July 3, 2012.

We hope to see you this Friday. Spend part of your holiday weekend with a church that promotes education for all.
