All are welcome to celebrate Black History Month at Braden! Our theme is:
Preserving Our Heritage: Embracing Hope for the Future
How can one have hope when all around they see the adversity people of color are enduring on every side? Where are the people who have overcome and how did they manage to be true to themselves while building successful careers and businesses? How is the African American community addressing these issues and encouraging people through them?
The Black Church has traditionally been the place of refuge and a beacon of light in times like these. Braden United Methodist Church, a landmark in the community for 110 years, is continuing the tradition of activism and outreach by hosting Black History Month events that will focus on Preserving African American Heritage while demonstrating ways to embrace the great hope for change in the community for the future.
