St. Johns AUMP Church is observing its 150th anniversary this year. All are welcome to celebrate at a service to be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, April 28, at the church, which is located at 207 West Main St. in Goshen. Pastor Carolyn Ross will preside. In 1813, the Right Reverend Peter Spencer, a freed slave from Kent County, Maryland, instituted the original Union Church of Africans, allowing religious freedom for African Americans. The name was later changed to the African Union Methodist Protestant Church (AUMP). Today there are 31 congregations in the states of Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Sumterland, and the District of Columbia. Goshen’s church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. (Photo by Geri Corey)
