     During the week of February 13th, Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF) will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary. RHF provides affordable housing and services to more than 17,000 seniors, low income families and persons with disabilities throughout the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Virgin Islands.

     On Thursday, February 17th, members of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ are invited to a 7:30 pm worship service at the Long Beach First Congregational UCC (241 Cedar Avenue) to hear Dr. Jim Forbes and to celebrate the organization’s ministry. The Council of Conference Ministers of the UCC are also scheduled to attend this celebration.

     The Rev. Dr. James Alexander Forbes, Jr. is Senior Minister Emeritus of The Riverside Church and President of the Healing of the Nations Foundation.

     The Riverside Church is an interdenominational, interracial, and international church built by John D. Rockefeller Jr. in 1927. The 2,400-member church is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches and the United Church of Christ.

     In national and international religious circles, Dr. Forbes is known as the preacher’s preacher because of his extensive preaching career and his charismatic style. In their March 4, 1996 issue, Newsweek magazine recognized Forbes as one of the 12 “most effective preachers” in the English-speaking world. This Pastor, Educator, Administrator, Community Activist and Interfaith Leader was designated as one of America’s greatest Black preachers by Ebony magazine in 1984 and 1993.
