Top photo: St. Mark AME Church recently held a “Men’s Empowerment Weekend,” which included a men’s fellowship prayer breakfast and men’s empowerment worship service. The goal of the “Dressed to Kill” themed service was to have 100 casually-dressed men at Sunday morning worship service. The Rev. Darryl Williams, pastor of St. Mark (kneeling in photo) said bringing men together and healing the spirit of a man is critical to addressing society’s many ills.
