Jubilee Sunday Celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation!

We had a great Jubilee Sunday Celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation!
In case you didn’t know:
– President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863 declared that all persons held as slaves, in states, then in rebellion are forever free
– the Emancipation Proclamation, a very important document in American History, deserves to have State and/or National recognition or observance, at a designated day or time.
– the emancipating of said slaves was not an end within itself, but the beginning of a long struggle for equality and justice that continues today
Thank you all who came out and made this a successful event. Very Rev. Kevin Fausz, C. M., V. U., Pastor was the host while Rev. Dr. Michael A. Jolla, Pastor, West End Baptist Church was our guest speaker!
