WELCOME Our Black History Service is held on an annual basis on the third Sunday in February. Our service includes singing, speeches, skits, drama, speakers and preaching. We recognize that there were many who came before us; our forefathers and foremothers who paved the way being used in different ways and at different times in history. They were normal people who submitted to being used by God to make a difference through generations. We too, are given the same opportunity to be used by God. Not just because we are of the African American race, but because we are sons and daughters of the Most High. God wants to use you and me, no matter the skin color. God used His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ who made a mark etched so deep in history that it is still making a mark to this very day.

We have held many services with such themes as "Your Life's Blueprint", "That Was Then, This Is Now " , "They All Have A Story, What's Yours?" and this year's two-fold theme being "Our Black Heritage - Coming Back to the House of the Lord, Filling the Empty Pews"

 
BRIEF HISTORY

During Black History Month which is held in February, there are many services, recognitions and programs. It is an annual observance in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people such as Soujourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King Jr., and so many more. Events are held to recognize these persons in the history of the African diaspora.

The forerunner to Black History Month was created in 1926 in the United States, when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week of February to be "Negro History Week " which was chosen because it marked the birthday of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas.

Let us not forget, although we recognize the month of February as Black History Month; if it wasn't for Jesus Christ who shed His blood and gave His life for us, we wouldn't be able to celebrate anything.
Be Blessed
