An Atlanta church marked a major milestone Sunday.

New Hope AME Church, one of the oldest churches in the nation, celebrated 150 years of worship on Sunday.

The all-white attire celebration included a number of special guests, performances, and a keynote sermon from Bishop Reginald T. Jackson of the 6th Episcopal District of the AME Church.

Moses Few is the oldest serving member of the church and has been a member for over 90 years.

"We just love each other. Even when new ones come in they join right in," Few said. "We all become a little part of the family."

The architecture of the church is authentic.

The church has been used in four films, including Tyler Perry's "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" and Oprah's "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks."
