Zion Chapel COGIC Allegedly Kicked Young Lady Out Of Church For Missing To Many Sundays.
If your church would ever send out anything like this, you need to rethink the whole reason behind what you’re doing. Stuff like this is why people don’t do church. This young lady Azoia Williams posted the below post to her Facebook page after her church kicked her out. They said the absences have to be excused by the pastor. And now little sis has to go up in front of the board of trustees:
Zion Chapel Church of God in Christ Now I really don’t care that I had to do this, but I’m going to speak for myself and many many others that have received the same thing. If you read this letter you will see that I have been kicked out of Zion Chapel COGIC led by David Johnson Sr. Everyone who knows me knows that I have been going to this church since birth and that my great-grandmother Ruthie Mae Ford was best friends with our previous pastor Superintendent Ernest J. Johnson.
The point of me being kicked out is because I have missed 2 pastoral Sundays according to the ‘rules’ that just so happen to have come about after the death of Ernest Johnson. I’m not going to go into great detail, but I have never heard of a church kicking someone out, a student at that who are attending the University of Southern Mississippi full time and interning at the hospital down there 40 hours a week.
Now when Elder Johnson was alive his granddaughter attended USM as well and was not at church all of the time and she never got kicked out. She also attended after his death when her father took over and still no letter was given to her.🤷🏽♀️ But the matter is over and I will not be attending Zion Chapel any more and honestly I’m happy because I’ve found a new church home😊 since zion chapel says this is an indication of my ‘wishes’ which it couldn’t have been because not one soul from that church has called to ask ‘Azoia how is school going? Or how is your family?’ So how can you assume it is my wish to be terminated???
But I wish nothing negative about them I will just remove the negative from my life and move on to the bright future I know God has for me! If anyone feels the need to comment 🗣GO AHEAD!!! Per request of my Grandfather Theodore Williams: “As long as I (Theodore Williams) has been worshipping at Zion Chapel COGIC, I’ve never seen or heard of one being kicked out for being in school or being sick for a while.
I hope that Bishop Daniel Littleton (First Southern Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction) will do what is right to correct the wrongful situation. God knows that my wife and her mother have serviced the church for all of their lives and I pray this situation is corrected before legal matters are taken.”
