On June 19th,1865, word finally reached Galveston, Texas that President Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed all the enslaved people in the US. News of their freedom was intentionally hidden from the enslaved people for over 2 years. This year is the second year that Juneteenth is a federal holiday. We’ll celebrate by learning more about the traditions and meaning of this important holiday for the Black community.
This Sunday we will have a multi-platform service. A limited number of people can register to attend in person, OR folks can still attend via our online Zoom option. Those attending in-person will follow our in-person gathering guidelines including wearing high-quality face masks. Registration is required, so that we can manage the number of people in the sanctuary and follow our gathering guidelines. Children are welcome with their parents in the sanctuary. A small creativity and play area is provided for very young children inside the sanctuary. Currently no separate in-person classroom space, this includes no separate programs for children or separate nursery care area.
