Hold On

June 16, 2022

The first African slaves arrived in what was not yet the United States in 1619. These people would be legally deprived of their freedom until January 1, 1863, but the last group of enslaved people in Galveston, Texas would not get Union Army-backed word of the Emancipation Proclamation until June 19, 1865. That’s the basic outline of the story of Junteteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Black Independence Day which we’ll celebrate this Sunday along with Father’s Day. In the context of worship, we’ll also look at other long-term struggles and how our faith can carry us through. Please join us in person or online at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
