Celebrating Black History Month: A Resource List

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. If you aren’t already, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram! We’ll be highlighting some of these men and women each week.

Also, 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!
