Worship and weekly news for September 10, 2023

posted in: News, Worship | 0

Hello faith family! This is the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost – September 10, 2023. This week we celebrate Alexander Crummell was an American minister and academic. Ordained as an Episcopal priest in the United States, Crummell went to England in the late 1840s to raise money for his church by lecturing about American slavery. Abolitionists supported his three years of study at Cambridge University, where Crummell developed concepts of pan-Africanism and was the school’s first recorded Black student and graduate.

If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to our church or online giving.
