June 10th Service: Juneteenth

On June 19th, many people in the United States will celebrate Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, in recognition of the abolition of slavery in the United States. Why not celebrate January 1, 1863, the day Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation took effect? Because it took until June 19, 1865, for Union soldiers to arrive in Texas and enforce the Proclamation. This Sunday we will learn more about this holiday and its history as well as celebrate this significant day.

Worship Leader:  Rev. Suzanne Marsh
