Waugh Chapel celebrating Men’s Day
CAMBRIDGE — The Men of Waugh Chapel United Methodist Church will be celebrating its Annual Men’s Day at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16.
The preacher for this service is Rev. Jamar Jackson, pastor of Metropolitan United Methodist Church, Princess Anne.
Rev. Jackson is originally from Bowie, MD and is the son of Tywana and John Jackson. He is the grandson of Mable and Hinson Finney. While in Bowie, he attended Reid Temple AME Church where he received Christ and was baptized under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington.
Rev. Jackson later moved to Pocomoke City to live with his grandparents and graduated from Pocomoke High School. He received an Associate’s Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Wor-Wic Community College. Afterward, he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from University of Maryland, Eastern Shore.
Rev. Jackson is currently attending United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Divinity and a Master’s Degree in Theology. He is also currently a teacher at Washington High School in Princess Anne, MD where he teaches eight grade math and ninth grade algebra.
Rev. Jackson has been gifted in many areas by God. He is a musician and can play several instruments and loves worship. His one desire is that God will get glory out of every area of his life. The scripture that Rev. Jackson lives by is Romans 12:1-2, “Therefore, I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
All United Methodist men are invited to share in this worship experience as well as everyone of the larger community. Music will be provided by the Waugh Gospel Choir, with Shirley Stanley, the pianist, and under the direction of Brenda Davis. Waugh Chapel is located at 425 High Street in Cambridge.
