Black History Celebration Service
11:00 am on Zoom Feb 28
February is that month that Canadians observe Black History and celebrate the contributions of our sisters and brothers of African origin have made to this country we are all part of.
At Mount Zion we will take the opportunity to celebrate our diversity and recognize and lift up the culture and lives of our Black communities during a service on Sunday February 28. We will begin the service at 11 am, instead of 10 to allow friends that would like to attend their own services before joining us to do so. Bishop Pryse will preach and Laura Mae Lindo MPP for Kitchener Centre will be our guest speaker.

Pastor Philip, a member of the synod’s Racial Justice Advisory Committee encourages us to delve deeper into the issue of racism. That committee is calling on us to explore the incredible collection of resources that they have compiled: podcasts, videos, books, articles, and academic chapters from members of the RJAC...and then to share our learnings, and the experience with others thoughout the month of February.Visit https://rjaceastern.wixsite.com/home/we-challenge-you to start learning!
