Beth Eden Baptist Church held it 3rd annual Education and Scholarship Crab Feed Saturday, Jan. 26 at the West Oakland Senior Center.
“This year’s crab feed was a success through the dedication and hard work of our many volunteers and committee members who sacrificed their time and energy to inspire our youth to pursue a higher education,’’ said Scholarship Chair Carole Chenier. “Our church family and community really showed up, raised much needed funds and made the difference by giving back to our younger generation.”
“The scholarship really helped me get through college, not just financially but also knowing I had my church family and community praying for me gave me the support I needed,” said Darrin Chenier, a past scholarship recipient.
The senior pastor of Beth Eden is Dr. Gillette O James, and Dr. Rosa V. James is first lady. The church is located at 1183 10th St. in Oakland. For information call (510) 444-1625.
