Mother Emanuel members gather for the 200th anniversary of the Edisto Church District
Hundreds of people gathered in Downtown Charleston to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Edisto Church District.
Members of the Edisto Church District and the community showed up in their sneakers for the very first Founder’s Day walk.
Many people say the walk helps to symbolize the strong presence the A-M-E church has in the community.
A-M-E leaders say the turnout extraordinary and Emanuel A-M-E was the perfect place for the 200-year celebration.
The Founder’s Day celebration will wrap up tomorrow after an evening of worship service at Mother Emanuel.
