First Afrikan Church, January is the month we rest and dedicate time to spiritual, relational, political and cultural enrichment; rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of cultural and spiritual knowledge, and set the tone for the rest of the year through reflecting on the church’s theme. This year’s theme is Sankofa: Standing in the Present, Remembering our Past, Building our Future.
Please pick up your Shabbat Meditation Booklets after service in the Narthex.
