Celebrating Community at Pentecost

July 1, 2021 Amy Wheatley

Thirty parents, children and youth gathered outdoors at the church on Sunday, May 23 to celebrate Pentecost. Youth group teens helped dramatize the Pentecost story for the younger children. We heard how God’s spirit came to Jesus’ followers like a mighty wind and enabled them to tell people from different lands about God’s love. We learned that all were welcome in this new community of people who lived together, ate together, prayed together, and shared all that they had with one another. We concluded our celebration with cupcakes, bubbles and play with friends!

GCC Summer 2021

June 7, 2021 Antoinette Richardson

Our Battle for Democracy continues this summer as we take our campaign to five Cleveland neighborhoods to engage voters around the 2021 Cleveland mayoral primary in September and the general election in November. Our canvassing efforts are focusing on the Central, Fairfax, Glenville, Lee-Harvard and Slavic Village neighborhoods, which have seen historically low voter turnouts in recent elections. 

We are recruiting as many canvassers as we can from these five neighborhoods and from GCC congregations. We will provide canvassers with thorough training about how to engage people around voting and vaccinations in particular, and we will continue with COVID safety protocols, including mask wearing and social distancing. 

This month, we will begin in Lee-Harvard and Fairfax. Throughout the summer, we’ll add neighborhoods and revisit some neighborhoods.

We need lots of canvassers to engage with as many people as possible. To sign up for June, please fill out this linked form.

Stay tuned for additional communications, events and actions in our ongoing Battle for Democracy campaign!

Black Caucus Book Club – The Color of Compromise, Saturday, June 5, 2021, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

May 13, 2021 Elizabeth Shaw

All are invited to join a discussion of “The Color of Compromise” by Jemar Tisby, on Saturday, June 5, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM. In this book, the author writes about the roots of sustained racism and injustice in the American church. He presents a historical survey of the role of race in American Christianity, the brutality of racism, and the present-day challenges. He challenges readers to ‘leave behind the compromised Christianity that makes its peace with racism” and offers ways ‘to live out Christ’s call to a courageous faith. ”

Send an email to BlackCaucus@FHCpresb.org to receive a invitation to this discussion.
