HOUSTON- Galilee Missionary Baptist Church was organized on June 18, 1913, and currently stands as the oldest African-American Baptist Church in the Acres Homes Community. The church family recently hosted a celebration to commemorate their 100th church anniversary. Also this year, Galilee recognized their Pastor, Rev. Dr. Edwin A. Davis for outstanding achievements of 25 years of faithful, meritorious service to the Church and to the community of Acres Homes.
