Black History Month at First Baptist







Black History Month 2023 is just around the corner, and First Baptist Church of Crown Heights has a lineup of exciting events to celebrate. This year's theme is "Resistance," and the church is eager to honor and recognize the rich history and contributions of the African American community.

The celebration begins on the first Sunday with "Let Us Break Bread Together." This event is an invitation to families and friends to worship together on Communion Sunday. It's an opportunity to come together and break bread as one community.

February is also American Heart Health Month, and the church will be celebrating with a "Red for Heart Health" event on the second Sunday. The church is asking everyone to wear red to bring awareness to heart health and celebrate Valentine's Day.

The celebration continues on February 19th with African Heritage Sunday and a Book Fair. The church will be dressed in African attire or red, black, and green to show pride and celebrate the rich culture of the African American community. The Book Fair will highlight the gifted writers of the church and is an excellent opportunity to learn about their works and support them.

Finally, the celebration will close out with a "Salute to HBCUs" led by the youth on the fourth Sunday. The church is encouraging everyone to dress in their favorite HBCU sweater or represent their fraternity, sorority, lodge, or black community/civic organization.

In conclusion, First Baptist Church of Crown Heights is committed to honoring and celebrating Black History Month with a lineup of exciting events. So, mark your calendars and plan to celebrate the rich history and contributions of the African American community.
