The Church home to Pastor Marvin Winans, is having a special dedication ceremony for the youngest members of the congregation on Sunday. Charity Grace wanted her only son, two-year-old Joshua Grace, to share in the blessings.
“I want to instill values and morals in my son based upon the word of God,” she told Fox 2 Detroit.
