Modeling in Retirement!

Usher Carol Dedeaux

Modeling is something she wanted to do in her youthful, early days. Now, she is actively engaged in print, electronic and commercials during this pandemic in retirement!  

Check out a recent commercial she was featured in, The Impromptu Choir.
Dear Second Baptist Church Family:

With great excitement, we welcomed our son, Alain Jesse Johnson into the world on October 12th. He was 7 pounds, 13 ounces and 21 inches! He is named after his ancestors, two great men, Ashley’s great-uncle Allen and Alex’s father Jesse. We are blessed beyond measure! To God be the glory for the great things he has done.

With love,

Alex and Ashley Johnson

Congratulations to former member and child of Second, Alicia (Arrington) Thomas, who was featured in the Runner's World Magazine!

Cicley Johnson has started a new business!

"Culture Chest is birthed out of the love of the African Diaspora that my parents experienced, held, and transferred to me through education and artifacts that were in their chests of drawers, and those of my ancestors. This love inspired me to begin to travel the African Diaspora, and I was able to experience the same feelings of love, home, and family that they experienced. This brand was crafted and created to educate, represent, and inspire. I am passionate about wearing intentional apparel that educates, represents and inspires. Many of the pieces in Culture Chest serve as conversation starters, and propel thought provoking conversations about the origins of so many aspects of everyday culture that are rooted in the African Diaspora. My hope is that you feel proud, royal, and emboldened when wearing these pieces. Educate. Represent. Inspire."
