History Committee

The History Committee honors the work of Sister Shirley R. Carr. Sister Carr was the church historian for many years. According to an article in The Virginian-Pilot’s Norfolk Compass, Rev. Collin P. Madison baptized Sister Carr at the church in 1936. At that time, the church was located at Brambleton Avenue and Landing Street. Sister Carr said at one time that her mother, Georgia Ruffin, and grandmother, Tena Farrow were members of the church in the 1920s, when it was located at Calvert and Wide Streets. Sister Carr knew all but the first two church pastors. The church’s scholarship foundation is named in her honor.
