Creating liberation takes many hands and continual effort to become a reality.
Join us as we hear stories of people whose lives intersected with the Emancipation Proclamation through historical vignettes. We’ll explore what the proclamation meant for enslaved people at the time and follow the thread to the present-day annual Juneteenth celebration.

Parking: Our church has no parking lot. Jewish Family Services lot: JFS welcomes us to use their parking lot on Sundays. It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets. After you park, get a token from an usher in order to exit the lot. We also rely on street parking in our neighborhood. Here is a map with details.
