About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Celebration Church of God cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Celebration Church of God is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

In 1938 Rev. & Mrs. Irving Stonesifer began holding open air meetings which became The Community Church in Daniels MD. During 1972 Rev. & Mrs. Walter Veasel were pastoring this church when Hurricane Agnes devastated the community and destroyed the church building. The church was rebuilt in 1974 on 7102 Pinecrest Road in the The Woodbridge Valley Community and was dedicated on April 7 as the community church. In 1990 Rev. Veasel and the congregation agreed to join The Church of God, Cleveland, Tennessee Conference. Reverend & Mrs. Lloyd Womack came to pastor and the name of the church was changed to The Woodbridge Valley Church of God. Rev. Womack resigned in October 1992, and Reverend & Mrs. Paul J. Bendetta Jr. came to pastor in November. In 1995 the church unanimously decided to change the name of the church to Celebration Church of God. In 2001, Pastor James Jones and his wife Crystal came to lead the church. Pastor Aaron "Tex" Randolph and his wife Debbie became the leadership of the church in January 2011.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Celebration Church of God is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
