WHAT A TIME... WHAT A TIME... WHAT A TIME!
During the month of April, the Mount Moriah Church Family celebrated and honored our Pastor, Dr. Melvin Von Wade, Sr, Mrs. Jacquie G. Wade and his entire family.
During one of our special moments, we were elated to see Rev. H. B. Charles and his entire family sharing with us during this special occasion... Pastor Wade's 42nd Pastoral Celebration!

"a shepherd, one who tends herds or flocks" (not merely one who feeds them), is used metaphorically of Christian "pastors," Ephesians 4:11 . "Pastors" guide as well as feed the flock; cp. Acts 20:28 , which, with ver. 17, indicates that this was the service committed to elders (overseers or bishops); so also in 1 Peter 5:1,2 , "tend the flock ... exercising the oversight," RV; this involves tender care and vigilant superintendence.
