Dear Christian Friends,


Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ! 


On Sunday, February 13, 2011, we will celebrate Piney Grove African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church’s First Annual Founder’s Day.  The Preacher for the Morning service will be your very own pastor, The Reverend Robert Little, Jr.  The Preacher for the, 3 p.m., afternoon program will be The Reverend Joseph George, a descendant of the founders of Piney Grove A. M. E. Zion Church.


Piney Grove A. M. E. Zion Church has been in existence since 1865 shedding light upon a dark and sinful world. To help us celebrate our First Founder’s Day, we cordially request your attendance at this momentous event.


The Founder’s Day Committee solicits your attendance to help celebrate and honor the men and women and their progeny instrumental in the establishment of this great Church. The committee is requesting that descendents of the original Trustees, members, and former Pastors be in attendance for special recognition. The earliest known Trustees were Silas Fenner, Ben Richards, Jesse P. Godette, George T. Fenner, Allen Whittington, Rufus L. Carter, Stephen Martin, Isaac Miller and James Black.


The Founder’s Day Committee requests that attendees wear clothing representative of Black Church goers in 1865 at the afternoon service. In addition, a post-service repast of culinary delights (food) from the eighteen-sixties will be served after the 3 p.m. service.


The Founder’s Day Committee is also asking each member to pay a modest sum of $50.00 at the morning or afternoon service to commemorate this affair. We are praying that you will bless us with your presence, but if not, please do your best to support this grand occasion with a financial contribution.


Thank you in advance for your prayers, attendance, and financial contributions.  We hope to see you on Sunday, February 13, 2011.   May God richly bless and keep you.



Yours in Christ,


Reverend Robert Little, Jr.
