We brought the celebration of Black History to a close yesterday. Our Youth Department led the charge every Sunday, for the entire month of February, during our virtual service. I thank God for inspiring us to recognize our heritage. It may have been a little awkward for some of us since we had to have the service using virtual platforms, but it was all a success. We thank God for:
Mayor Joyce Denson of Toomsboro Georgia for being with us during this month. Mayor Denson is a very humble servant of the Lord and the citizens of Toomsboro. She is the first black mayor of Toomsboro. She is one of the Lord’s Missionaries. Thank you Missionary/Mayor Denson!
We thank our Youth Department:
- Sister Rebecca Brown – Youth Department President
- Sister Tonya Fraley – Youth Department Leader
- Sister Erica Blockson – Youth Department Leader
- Brother Tyson Tillman – for his reading of “I Am A Black Child”.
- Jr. Deacon Kamarr Dixon – for his prayers and songs to start the service.
- Brother Jaden Walker – for reading the Old Testament.
- Bro. A.J. Richberg for reading the New Testament, a reading about the 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama.
- Sister Tokiyah Tillman – for welcoming everyone to our service, a reading about Stacey Abrams.
- Sister Ariana Walker – singing “Ain’t Gonna’ Let Nobody Turn Me Around”, and a reading about Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
- Brother Njavon Ingram – a poem entitled Stand Up.
- Sister Makira Price – a reading about Congressman John Lewis.
We especially thank all of the parents and other members of our family for their participation in making this a memorable event. Even though there’s only one month designated for Black History, we should recognize Black History throughout the entire year.
