Celebrating Black History Month

Weekly

As we join our community and country in celebrating Black History Month, we will be spotlighting theologians, authors, artists and individuals who inspire us and bring beauty to our lives. Each week, we’ll be going live at 12:00 pm on our youth’s YouTube channelRev. Greg Moore kicked us off, sharing how Howard Thurman and his book Jesus and the Disinherited has shaped his ministry and life.  If you missed it or others in this series, check it out here.
