Greater Framingham Community Church Hosting Jazz Gala To Celebrate 45 Years

FRAMINGHAM – In 1972, the Greater Framingham Community Church began serving Framingham as an interdenominational Christian church,.

The church was organized to meet the needs of suburbanites who desired a Black religious experience.

Decades later, the church is the largest predominantly African-American church in the MetroWest area with a congregation that draws from African, Caribbean, and European cultures.

In 2017, the church is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a jazz gala on September 23.

The gala will be held at the Warren Center in Ashland from noon to 3 p.m.

Tickets are $50 and are available now (see the flyer below for more details). Youth tickets at $10.

The church offers a full array of worship, fellowship, educational, and Bible study opportunities.

This interdenominational church is governed by a 12-member Church Council which is the policy making and executive body of the congregation.

Since 1992,  the Reverend Dr. J. Anthony Lloyd, a Baptist minister and Associate Dean of Students at Gordon College, has been the pastor, the church’s third pastor.

In April of 2000, the church moved into to its location in downtown Framingham at 44 Franklin Street.
