Faith Music: History of the Community A.M.E. Zion Church Choir

Clark County Historical Museum will continue its 2019 First Thursday Speaker Series on Thursday, Aug. 1, with “Faith Music: The History of the Community AME Zion Church Choir.” This free event will begin at 7 p.m. at the Community AME Zion Church, 3605 East 13th St. in Vancouver.

Music plays an important role in worship at Vancouver’s Community AME Zion Church. Since its establishment in 1975, many members of this congregation have participated in the ministry by playing instruments, performing vocals, or involving themselves with choir or dance. For the “Faith Music” First Thursday event, Reverend Joyce M. Smith, senior pastor, will explore this history, and the history of the church, alongside Brother Charles Simmons and Reverend Dayton Smith.

Through the support of the Clark County Historic Preservation Commission, the CCHM and Community AME Zion Church are providing this talk at no charge to the public.
