From http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/black-history-facts: “Black History Month began as “Negro History Week,” which was created in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson, a noted African American historian, scholar, educator, and publisher. It became a month-long celebration in 1976. The month of February was chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.”

WALK IN THE VISION CHALLENGE!

Bishop Fugh has called us to a season of Lent for one whole year as we return to holiness as an Episcopal District and Body of Christ. The scriptures to guide us are Nehemiah 8:1-10 and 1 Peter 2:1- 10. As a church family we are: 1) Becoming Tithers; 2) Fasting from speaking negatively about any human being (if it’s true); and 3) Developing a ‘GO’ ministry to make disciples.
