    The topics for Wednesday, February 3rd:

                          "Where Do We Go From Here" (Mark 5: 1-20)

    The Christian Education Team has decided the Theme for this year Black History month is “Where do we go from here?” We know the history, we know the problems, but we will try to address the solutions in this study. We will talk about some honest truths that some might not want to hear, but so be it.

    The America we thought we knew is gone. We are a nation following our leaders willingly into economic, moral, and political decline. No longer is our country based on godly principles and morality. What are Christians to do?

    It is not time to despair even as we face these difficult realities. 200 years of black history are behind us to show that African Americans do not need freedom or ease to be faithful. God’s work, His calling on His people, can be fulfilled no matter what.
