Who We Are
Although church doors are closed across the nation as pastors, preachers, evangelists and other congregation leaders contend with the deadly coronavirus, Melvin C. Green Jr., senior pastor at the Christian Community Church of God on West Baltimore Street, takes everything in stride.
As he enters the redbrick building on recent Sunday mornings like he’s done for almost 40 years, Green now surveys empty sanctuary pews. Undaunted, he prepares for his sermon that will air on YouTube and Facebook as a livestream worship service to faithful members on the official CCCOG channel. What better time to enhance family values and nurture than now when Gov. Larry Hogan has issued a state emergency, stay-at-home orders and 8 p.m. curfew that force families to constantly socialize.
