Celebrating Black History Month
The Lord reminds His people throughout the Bible to tell all generations of His wonderful works. He did not want them to forget how He demonstrated His grace and goodness to them and the world. Part of what that means for the church is that we must preserve the memory of the people and places the Lord has worked in the past. Hebrews 11 is an excellent example of how the church should cherish and celebrate people of faith who honored God with their lives.
February is Black History Month. As a church, we want to celebrate the contributions and accomplishments of the incredible men and women who’ve helped spread the Gospel and build the church.
We have taken some time to compile for you resources as well as some works written by African and African American men and women for you and your whole family to enjoy! Take some time to read through some of these and learn more about our incredibly diverse church history!
