Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, under the direction of the Pastor Rev. WIllie L. Greene Sr., has gone “Back to the Basics.” Bethel AMEC, the second oldest African American church in Corsicana, began 2013 with a renewed focus on Sunday School as basic biblical training for youth in the church and in the community. Sis. Pam Colbert, youth teacher, combines the Bible and Sunday School literature with arts and crafts activities and real-life illustrations to share the truth of the Holy Trinity. Sis. Dolores Carter is the adult teacher. All are welcome to join Bethel on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. for sunday School and at 11 a.m. for morning worship.
Bethel AMEC observed its Black History Celebration on Feb. 24, 2013 during the 11 a.m. worship service. Sis. Lizzie O’Neal, director and coordinator, along with members of the church, highlighted African Americans of the past and present, well-known and not so well-known, who used their skills, talents and opportunities to make this a better world for all.
Bethel AMEC will host Rev. Walter McDonald of Baker Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Ft. Worth, and former member of Bethel, Corsicana on March 10, 2013 at 11 a.m. The service will celebrate the Sunday School, Ushers, and Youth of Bethel. Rev. Willie L.
