Pastor Keith Green praying with community members.

In the light of April’s unrest and recent gun violence in Baltimore, Word of God Church and Ministries teamed up with several area businesses and organizations to bring hope, love, service and fun to its community. So on May 30, they literally shut down the street to serve the residents of the Garrison and Forest Park neighborhoods through its Community Day.

It was free food, personal prayer, games for children as well as health and social services. The NAACP conducted voter registration and criminal record expungement assistance. St. Agnes Hospital and University of Maryland Medical Center provided access to free or
reduced breast and colonoscopy exams. And there were free pony rides for the children. The Word of God S.W.A.T. (Soul Winning Advance Team) mobile along with dozens of S.W.A.T. members marched from Walbrook Junction Shopping Center, 3421 Clifton Ave. down Garrison Boulevard to the church as a sign of unity with and support of the community.

The Rev. Keith Green, Word of God’s pastor, said  this was their first of many steps in establishing relationships with surrounding businesses that will be beneficial to their success and that of the community.

The Church is located at 3220 Garrison Blvd. and can be contacted through or 410-664-6454.
