Our February Adult Sunday School class is "Stars in the Heavens:  Influential African American Persons of Faith." Led by Rev. Steve Charnley in the Parlor. During Black History Month, we will explore the stories of four faith figures who have gone before us and who have greatly influenced our country or community for good. Come and learn more about these "hidden figures" in history as we embark on this stellar journey of discovery.
