Negro Churches in Rhode Island: 1783 - 1966
Church of God and Saints of Christ
compiled by Mr. Luke N. Fears
for Doctor Carl R. Gross

"Two Missionaries came to Providence, Rhode Island, and so interested a group of people in their religious doctrine, that they requested a minister be sent to establish a church here.
Elder Allen Waters arrived in Providence, Rhode Island, on July 5, 1905 and organized this group under the name of the Church of God and Saints of Christ. It became an incorporated body August 14, 1908 under the same name with the following men named as Trustees: Alonzo Allen, Andrew Rhodes, Edward Potter and Samuel Crum.
Elder Waters rented a building at 422 Washington Street as the first tabernacle. The official day of worship being Saturday (Sabbath) according to Exodus 20:8-11 inclusive, no servile work was done by the members. A Department of Religious Education (Sabbath School) was formed for the spiritual indoctrination of the adults and children; also the Daughters of Jerusalem and Sisters of Mercy (Women's Auxiliary) did charitable work and raised funds to support the work.
On Winter Street near Cranston Street they had a grocery store operated by the members, also they owned two buildings at 49 and 53 Winter Street, which were a parsonage and a home for the aged and orphan children."
