Standing on the Promises
The Bible Way Temple Radio Choir was organized in 1930 by the wife of Bible Way's founder and apostle, Bishop Smallwood E. Williams. Mother Verna Lucille Williams combined her talents and formal training in the development of the choir dedicated to traditional gospel music. The choir ministered in the Bible Way congregation every Sunday as well as appearing on local and syndicated radio programs. The choir has traveled extensively to venues that include the Kennedy Center and the National Religious Convention.
Performed by the Bible Way Temple Radio Choir: Margaret Petris (soloist), Sadie M. Woodard (organ) Shelby Willis (piano).
