UCC neighbors join to learn about Afro-Christian history

Afro-Christian Convention:
The Fifth Stream of the United Church of Christ

A story of faith, resistance, resilience, and empowerment
in the hostile environment of racism

YES! There really IS a distinctly African-American history in the UCC!

Registration is open for a night to make new friends in four UCC congregations while combating racism. Falcon Heights Church joins St. Anthony Park UCC, Clark-Grace UCC and Macalester-Plymouth Church in learning about this “Fifth Stream of the UCC,” Thursday, March 7, 5:30-8 p.m. at St. Anthony Park UCC.

The four churches are planning this March 7 event to build community with some of our closest UCC neighbors on a Thursday night in Lent-—joined via Zoom by Rev. Dr. Yvonne Delk and Rev. Henry Simmons, the editor and two of the authors of the book “Afro-Christian Convention.”

The evening begins at 5:30 with a soup and bread meal and fellowship, followed by Mother Delk and Rev. Simmons joining us via Zoom. Order the book here from Pilgrim Press and support Franklinton Center at Bricks, North Carolina, where the book began.
