Who Are You?
Know Your Name
Rev. Naomi King
Sun. | Jan. 19 | 10AM
Join us on Sunday with Rev. King preaching on “Know Your Name.” God knows all of us before we are born and calls us by our names into this world. And yet part of reclaiming ourselves from oppressive forces can we discarding those dismissive, belittling, and hateful names and calling ourselves and inhabiting names that remind us God knows us and calls us. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called us to such creative practices in joining God to draw this universe closer to equity, justice, and compassion.
HAPPY MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY!
Church Office will be Closed on Monday, January 20 in observance of this day.
