City of Praise Church Holds a Concert to Celebrate the Life of Late Apostle Betty Peebles
Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers to perform.
By: Southerlyn Reisig
In the mid 1960’s, Dr. Peebles and her husband the late Bishop James R. Peebles founded what would become City of Praise Church, one of the largest churches in the Washington, D.C. metro area. In the forty-plus years since the church’s founding, it remains dedicated to teaching and preaching the gospel and being a positive resource in the community.
A musical concert is an outstanding way to celebrate Dr. Peebles’ life and legacy. In addition to being a well-respected preacher of the gospel, Dr. Peebles was respected the world over as a minister of music.
“This is a season to both reflect on the tremendous work accomplished by my Mother as well as celebrate the dynamic work she's left for us to do,” said Joel R. Peebles, Senior Pastor of City of Praise Church. “While she is receiving her reward with Christ, we can still feel her anointing and relish in the truth that her love and compassion is still warming our souls today. I am honored to share this worship experience and know that the Glory of God will be present in the place.”
The concert will begin at 7:00 pm and will be held at City of Praise Church 8501 Jericho City & Bishop Peebles Dr. Landover, MD. The event is free to the public, however a donation of $20 is appreciated.
