By From page A4 | March 14, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Members of St. Stephen Christian Methodist Episcopal Church will lead a community cleanup day Saturday at Allan Witt Park in advance of the congregation’s anniversary celebration the next day.

Church members and others will paint benches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park, located on West Texas Street. The Day of Service location was picked in consultation with city officials. The city will provide all of the materials to paint approximately 30 benches. The public is invited to participate.

Work at the park is a prelude to the church’s 46th anniversary celebration, which takes place at 3 p.m. Sunday at the church, 2301 Union Ave. in Fairfield. Congregants of True Love Baptist Church in Fairfield with the Rev. Mervin Davis will be special guests for the worship service. All are welcome to attend.

Senior pastor at St. Stephen CME Church is the Rev. David C. Isom.
