FITCHBURG — First Church of God in Christ is inviting all to join in celebrating its Annual Founder’s Day later this week.
The celebrations will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. The church is located at 82 Snow St.
Bishop Bryant Robinson Sr. is the founder of First Church and came to Fitchburg in 1976, the church said in the announcement. He ran a two-week tent revival service on the corner of Green and North streets. Although no one had joined the church at the end of the revival, he emulated General Douglas MacArthur and declared “I shall return.”
The church said he returned and established the First Church of God in Christ, due to his obedience, his faith, his love for God, as well as, his love for all people.
