The Africa Lighthouse Baptist Temple held its third year anniversary this Sunday with over 100 people in attendance.
They celebrated with service filled with guest pastors from Kenya and around the Commonwealth as well as a luncheon featuring African dishes.
The services at the church are translated from Swahili to English to make everyone feel welcomed from Africans to Americans.
The pastor hopes that by spreading the word about the church that more people will join and help them build connections for people who are coming over from Africa.
"We began with just a handful of people, a few families just meeting at my house for bible study,” says Peter Chege, pastor. “But now we average anywhere in the 40s to 50s for our weekly regular service."
"I'm excited to see what Pastor Peter Chege is doing, especially being able to reach fellow Africans," says Philip Warutere, visiting pastor from Kenya.
This is the first time that the church has been able to celebrate the anniversary in their new building.
