It is with understanding yet heavy hearts that we announce the retirement of Charles D. Twymon, pastor of Macedonia Baptist Church of Detroit Michigan. Pastor Twymon has served as the undershepherd of Macedonia for 41 years, in that time, the church membership has grown to over 700 parishioners, two church buildings have been acquired, debt-free, and he has maintained a stellar reputation as a husband, a father, and a pastor. The parishioners of Macedonia Baptist church are grateful for Pastor and Sister Loraine Twymon's 41 years of service to our church. Words cannot express how much we love Pastor and First Lady Twymon. Their years of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to winning souls for the Kingdom of God has been a gift to this assembly. His obedience to the Holy Spirit has helped this assembly to grow spiritually, financially, and in membership. He has led us with the truth of God’s holy and inspired word and did not waver in his commitment to preaching the unadulterated truth and spreading the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
We ask that members of Macedonia and fellow believers of Christ pray for this assembly as we embark upon the difficult journey of carefully selecting our new leader. All members are strongly encouraged to attend all Sunday services and church business meetings to stay informed and to participate in the selection process.
