African American History Month

The history of African Americans is weaved into the tapestry of America. African American History has impacted history of our church, community and world. We give special attention to the lives of African American Disciples who have committed their life and ministry to be a blessing to the entire Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). I encourage you to explore the resources for worship, study and education. Visit the websites listed that are full of resources and discovery. Go here for the 2018 African American History Month Resources (PDF) ledger size 17×11 and the 2018 insert of Lift Every Voice and Sing (PDF) 8 1/2 x 11
