Smith, Senior Pastor, Friendship Pasadena on Sunday, September 25, 2016. Pastor Smith has pastored the Friendship Baptist Church since 1996. “The Jewel of Old Pasadena” stands as a glowing reminder of the African American presence in this part of the city. While remaining true to the church’s historical roots, Pastor Smith has sought to keep the ministries of the church relevant with contemporary application of the Gospel message. Having been raised in Friendship since birth, the relationship he has with the church is very personal. His love for his work is only surpassed by his love for the people whom he shepherds. Pastor Smith is committed to a biblical expository ministry and delivers his sermons whereas even a little child can comprehend.He is the Past President of the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Greater Pasadena (IMA). He desired to create an atmosphere of unity and fellowship among Christian Clergy, resulting in a unified presence in the cities in which they serve. He believes that there are no “Big I’s” or “Little You’s”, and that every ministry ordained by God has value, whatever the size. He believes that “There are no small churches. Everything God creates is intended to thrive and grow.” He is also a member of the Ecumenical Council of Pasadena area Churches (ECPAC), an association of churches which strives to minister to the less fortunate and the underserved. Friends In Deed, The Bad Weather Shelter and other civic minded efforts provide emergency services to those who qualify. Additionally, Pastor Smith serves as Vice President of The Clergy Community Coalition, a non-profit organization which seeks to address the issue of affordable housing in the Pasadena area, where solutions to the economic, educational and social barriers that make affordable housing so difficult are developed and implemented through public forums and clergy participation.Pastor Lucious has been married to his wife, Genine, for 25 years. They have a daughter, Camille, and son, Jordan, and believe that a strong sense of family responsibility is essential. “God created the family before He created the Church” is something Pastor Smith constantly affirms. “Caring for your family should not supersede your love of the Lord. It does, however, demonstrate it.”Friendship Pasadena, 80 W. Dayton St., Pasadena, (626) 793-1062 or visit pfbchurch.net.
Community News Rose Bowl Testing Results Spur Pasadena’s Largest One-Day New Coronavirus Case Total: 80 New testing data reveals a nearly eleven percent leap in reported cases, bringing total to 784 confirmed By EDDIE RIVERA Published on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 | 6:49 pm Herbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAncient Beauty Remedies From India To Swear By For Healthy SkinHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyGained Back All The Weight You Lost?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Yummy Spices For A Flat TummyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeauty 20 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>The Pasadena Health Department Wednesday reported the largest single-day increase in the number of local Coronavirus cases since reporting began.According to a report from Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian there were 80 new cases, more than doubling the highest previously reported one-day total of 36 back on May. 12The new cases represent an 11 percent rise in the total number of Pasadena cases, now at 784.There were also three deaths, two of whom were in a long term health care facility, and one who was a community resident. The deaths raise the total number of local deaths to 77. The dead ranged from 49 to 102, and all had underlying health conditions.Pasadena could begin to see larger numbers of reported cases, as more test results become available.Said Derderian, “I think it’s safe to say that the larger number of positive cases reported today are the result of a backlog of reporting from the Rose Bowl (testing site).”Health care workers are currently testing about 400 patients a day at the Rose Bowl, so the Health Department received a larger set of new numbers, she explained.“We could see that on and off for the next several weeks, too,” Derderian added.New testing brings forth higher numbers, and perhaps more cases, she said.“And this is what we want,” she continued. “We want the expanded testing so people have the ability, even with just mild symptoms, to be able to get tested. We really want to encourage people to sign up and get tested there. Plus there are several locations in Pasadena that are available through private healthcare providers.”Derderian also pointed out that, “There’s an abundance of testing out there now, that we want to encourage people to do, because those numbers will really dictate a lot of our recovery and reopening phases.”The number of people tested in Pasadena also affect the overall L.A. County numbers said Derderian, since residents from all over the region could be tested at the Rose Bowl site, but only Pasadena residents are reported by the Pasadena Health Department.Derderian also reminded residents, with the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend approaching, to avoid gatherings and stay within their immediate households.“We don’t want people to get a little too lax,” she said.Free COVID-19 testing outside the Rose Bowl is available through the County to all residents, whether or not you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.Priority for the same or next day testing is given to people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat, or a new loss of sense of smell.Testing is also prioritized for certain critical front-line workers who interact with the public while working.Testing is by appointment only.
