Presented by Rev. Terrance L. Thomas,
Bethel A. M. E. Church

This year marks the 160th Anniversary of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Champaign, IL, the oldest Black
church in Champaign County. To pay homage to our ancestors whose faith, hard work, determination, and perseverance
established a pillar in this community, we have chosen the theme: “Rooted in Faith...Honoring the Legacy” based on
Psalm 78:2-7.
