BEST GOSPEL SERVICE - 2000
Pilgrim Baptist Church
Sometimes you just want to praise Jesus. (What's that?) Said praise Jesus. (Tell it.) Said praise him in the morning. (Uh-huh.) Said praise him in the evening. (Amen, brother.) Said praaaaaise. Said praaaaaise. Said sometimes all of God's children want to get the juice out and praise the Lord. And should you get that hankering, the praising-est (Said glory!), shouting-est (Hallelujah!) gospel congregation around can be found at Pilgrim Baptist Church, with two-hour Sunday services at both 7:45 and 10:45 a.m. In this friendly community, visitors are greeted before the service begins; then, during the "Welcome and Greeting" portion of the service, the whole congregation comes out of the pews to hug and clasp hands with friends and strangers. In this atmosphere of dignity, warmth, and worship, participation remains entirely personal--the shouting and the mute are equally welcome, and all God's children say...what? Say Amen.
