School & Thanksgiving Supply Drive 2021 (update):


This year things are just a little “different.” Instead of confining our support to schools only, we are extending our efforts to the general community, because everyone needs help staying healthy.  We still ask you to bring donations of personal hygiene and cleaning supplies to the church office.  If you need a pick up, contact the church office.  We will get them to our partners at community schools serving Avondale students and are organizing distribution activities at the church (more details on those TBA).  Click the picture on the right for the complete list of requested items.  Contact the church office for more details.  Sponsored by the Sunday School.

Reflections on Black History Month

The Board of Christian Education

“A Teaching Ministry Serving God’s People”

Mrs. Doris Jackson, Chairperson

Dr. Carter G. Woodson (1875-1950), started Negro History Week in 1926, chosen in the second week of February between the birthdays of Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln, which evolved into Black History Month in 1976. 

    Dr. Woodson devoted his entire life to bringing the achievements of his race to the world’s attention.  He founded the Association For The Study of African American Life and History in 1915, and the Journal of Negro History in 1916.  He published the Miseducation of the Negro in 1933.  The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASLAH) held its 102nd Annual Meeting in Cincinnati, September 2017.

     “Every individual in the United States should study Black History.  Without this knowledge, one’s historical perspective is fragmented, distorted and incomplete.  While Black History shows the trials and tribulations experienced by African Americans, it more importantly celebrates the contributions, achievements and the overwhelming endurances of people.”    Anonymous
