Lithonia First United Methodist Church recently celebrated Pastor’s Appreciation Sunday on Oct. 9. The church honored Pastor Leon Matthews along with Mrs. Pamela Matthews and son, Mackenzie.
The Rev. Matthews has served as Senior Minister at the church since 2010. By his character and service, he demonstrates what it means to be a Christian who follows in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, his congregation says. Under his leadership, the church is enjoying a season of growth and renewal. In the pastor’s own words, “The best is yet to come!”
