Black History Month 2018: Without Apology

Can you believe that another February is here already?  We are excited about the way we are going to celebrate the achievements of black and brown peoples here at North Church during this Black History Month – without apology!

Dr. R. Clifford Jones, president of the Lake Region Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, kicks off the month with our West Indian heritage emphasis on February 3.  Dr. Freddy Haynes, senior pastor of the Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, visits us on February 17, as we celebrate our African-American heritage.  In addition, on that Saturday, the renowned Morgan State University Choir will be with us providing music in the morning, and a full concert in the afternoon.  To close out the series, Dr. Alyn Waller, senior pastor of the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church right here in Philly, will preach on February 24, on where we are in the civil rights struggle.

We look forward to seeing you here, and hope you will bring a friend!
