Services celebrating its 96th anniversary are set for Kimberly Park Holiness Church on Sunday, April 19. At 11 a.m. Kimberly Park’s ministerial staff members are scheduled to speak: Pastor Elder Robert Edmond, Elder Preston Jones, Minister/Lady Carolyn Edmond and Dr. Evangelist Vanessa D Winfield.

The guest church and pastor slated for the 4 p.m. service are Bishop Arnie Joyce of Miracle Mount Carmel Holiness Church of West Virginia. A dinner fellowship will follow the morning service on Sunday.

Kimberly Park Holiness Church was organized in a two-story framed building at Derry and Glenn Avenue.  It was the year 1919.  The location at the time was a thickly clustered area with bushes with a nearby stream.  The group comprised of 10 chartered members and came together under the name of ‘Union Mission Sanctified Church.’

Elder Frank Caesar was the founding pastor along with Elder W. M. Smith as assistant pastor.  Deacon Solomon M. Caesar, Sister Nellie Caesar (wife of Frank Caesar), Deacon Willie Caesar, Brother Jim Caesar, Sister Agnes Caesar, Sister Winnie Gray as church mother, group as charter members.

Since its founding, Kimberly Park Holiness Church has been under the leadership of several eminent pastors: Elder W.M. Smith, Bishop S.M. Caesar, Bishop T.R. Rice, Bishop L.S. Tate, Elder Hilton Stone and Elder Paul Sherard.  Our current pastor is Elder Robert R. Edmond, Jr.

The chosen theme for this 96th year celebration is Acts 20:28, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.”

Elder Edmond and the entire membership of Kimberly Park Holiness Church welcome the public to the services.
