New Jerusalem honors pastor’s 5th anniversary

MOULTRIE — The New Jerusalem Baptist Church will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of its senior pastor and elect lady. The celebration will be held over three days of services.

The first celebration will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday Oct. 11, with Gethsemane Worship Center and Bishop Frederick Williams of Albany. A second service will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 14, with Bishop Q.S. Caldswell of Lenox.

The third service will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday Oct. 18, with the sermon by the Rev. Dexter B. Luke of Albany. The celebration will conclude at 3 p.m. with First Mt. Olive Baptist Church, Albany, and its pastor the Rev. Gary Sanders. Dinner will be served at 1 p.m. in between the two services.

The Rev. Charles Luke Jr. and first lady Lotonya Luke have been with New Jerusalem for five years now as senior leadership. Luke’s vision, developing ministry-minded people for Kingdom service, has led the church to spiritual growth and development, according to an e-mail from the church.

Luke and his family came to New Jerusalem Baptist from Albany, and he is also the founder and CEO of New Jerusalem Community Outreach Center, Inc.

Anyone who is unable to be a part of the services can watch them live on the internet by visiting the church’s Web site,

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
