October 09, 2016 – Paterson, New Jersey: Brother Windsor Elony sings and plays the tambourine while another member of the congregation leads everyone in song. The First Baptist Church built in 1825, primarily served white European immigrants until the 1990’s. Despite dwindling numbers since then, the church has been able to rely on new immigrant groups to sustain it. Today, one of the congregations it serves is the Haitian-Goshen-Baptist Church of Paterson, which worships in a small chapel within the old church. Photograph by Todd R Darling
