FOR THE CHRONICLE
Easter Sunday is celebrated by churches across the
country in a myriad of ways. The congregation of Greater
Cleveland Avenue Christian Church at 5095 Lansing
Drive featured gospel singer Vicki Winans for their
Resurrection Sunday Service.
Winans has been connected with Greater Cleveland
since she met lead pastor Bishop Sheldon McCarter 20
years ago at the Great Family Gathering the church held at
the Benton Convention Center and they have been the best
of friends since then.
"Our friendship has been tremendous and what makes
Vicki different and unique is the fact that she is so touch
able and friendly to everyone," said McCarter.

in the synagogue in Nazareth and so angered the people
with His declaration of being the fulfillment of prophesy
that they take Him to a cliff and are ready to throw Him
off. In Capernaum Jesus healed many and performed the
miracle of the fishes, where He said to Simon, "Launch

unto death with the palsy. To accredit him even more, a
group of Jewish elders approach Jesus on his behalf. By
