As the Angelic Host rejoices with the arrival of another anointed man of God, those who remain to endure have heavy hearts and indescribable sadness as a result of this tremendous loss. Bishop Calvin A. Whedbee Sr. gently laid his head in the Master’s arms and went to sleep in Paradise on Sunday February 6,2022.

The Glorious and Triumphant Life Celebration will begin as Bishop Whedbee Lies in Tranquil Repose on Saturday, February 12,2022 from the hours of 4-6pm at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremation’s. Celebration of Bishop’s Life will commence at 2:30pm on Sunday February 13,2022 from the Main Sanctuary of Fellowship and Worship Center with Rev. Barbara Brown officiating and Dr. Darius J. Horton delivering the eulogy.

Immediately following the formalities in the sanctuary, Bishop Whedbee’s physical temple along with his adored family, will be escorted to the church cemetery for Interment Rites with Military Honors. 

Now that he has finally met the Man he has witnessed to others about for so many years and been honored to sit at the feet of the one he prayed to, not to mention beholding the beauty of the one he taught his children about, his spirit is satisfied and when the trumpet is sounded and the sky opens once and for all, the Master Himself will call his name saying, "Calvin, you’ve been faithful, you’ve been true and you’ve done all you could ever do and for your faithfulness, ITS YOUR TIME."

The compassionate professionals at Horton’s Funeral Homes and Cremations are working around the clock to ensure that the Whedbee and connected families every need is attended too
