Died Feb. 8, 2008

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Pastor Gladys Mickens Brewer, 83, of 404 W. Grantham St., slipped away to be with her Heavenly Fa-ther Friday morning at Wayne Me-morial Hos-pital. She was the pastor of New Saint Mary Church of Christ.

Her life and ministry will be celebrated in a glorious homegoing service noon Wednesday at Goldsboro-Raleigh Assem-bly Institute with Bishop Chester Aycock officiating. She will be laid to rest in Wayne Memorial Park.
