The "Jonesville" community (which is the current location of the Dobbins ARB) was founded and built by Freed Slaves.

Pentecost Service
Sunday, June 5

We are having a special celebration for Pentecost on June 5! We are celebrating our international diversity, and so we encourage everyone to wear traditional clothing from their home country if you are from outside the US. If not, we encourage everyone to wear red as it symbolizes the Holy Spirit's fire unleashed on that day! After the service, we will be having an international potluck, and so if you would like to participate, please bring a traditional dish to share.

All Generations Coming To Christ
