Our Children, Our Stories” happens downstairs in the community room today during First Sunday Service! Children ages FOUR thru ten are invited to come downstairs after the Community Affirmation during the Song of Preparation for Story Time and return upstairs in time for Zawadi. Older Students may come down to help READ Stories to our youngsters.
**PARENTS, DO NOT send children under four years old downstairs. You may bring AND stay with them. Boundary-trained Adult volunteers are also needed.
At 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.
Creation Care will be observing Martin Luther King Jr day, Monday, January 21, 2019 as a work day rather than a day off. We will be focusing on the Church, Vanessa Knight Building, gardens, trails, yard and curb side. We are asking volunteers to assist in this effort. Work will be from 9:00am until 1:00pm. A communal feast will be served after the completion of work. If you have any questions see Sis. Marshall Honeywood.
