Welcome to the historic, Mount Hermon A.M.E. Church
Mount Hermon was established in 1906 under Rev. J.H. Haines and is both Fort Lauderdale's and Broward County's oldest A.M.E. church. In fact, historical evidence shows that our deed was purchased from the Dallas Land Company before Broward County was in existence as our "township" was then a part of Dade County until 1911.
Despite our old roots, we continue to serve God and community in a way that relates to and reaches out to our world today. Truly, if you don't know where you've been, it's harder to keep your foot sure where you are going.
We welcome you to attend any of our services or Bible Study. Journey into a bright, new future with Mount Hermon, The Friendly Church, and may the Lord continue to order your steps (Ref. Ps. 119:133).

Calling all of our oldest members to be honored as pioneers
Once upon a time in the days when the county fair was the hot ticket, there was an event called The Ham & Egg Show. People would bring their smokiest, salted hams, and grandest eggs for judging, sale and auction. Those who remember those days from their youth are our Pioneers. Mount Hermonites, if you know of any church members who are age 90 or over, please contact Sis. Katharine McNair at (954)791-9226. Try to have their date of birth and contact information so the Historical Society can be ready for Pioneer Day honorees. Thank You.
The history of our New Year Watch Night Service
Every New Year's Eve, Mount Hermon and scores of other black churches gather for Watch Night to bring in the New Year. But this custom is not just a countdown as it can be traced back to "Freedom's Eve" in 1862.
Though John Wesley held New Year's Eve services in the 1700s, they took on a critical meaning for African Americans.
slaves in the Confederate south were officially freed.
Today, we still gather on New Year's Eve to commemorate Watch Night.
On December 31, 1862, blacks all over the states gathered in churches and homes and awaited the news that the Emancipation Proclamation had officially become law.
