Sunday School

Juneteenth National Independence Day, is a federal holiday in the United States. It is celebrated annually on June 19 to commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States.

The holiday’s name is a portmanteau of the words “June” and “nineteenth,” as it was on June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger ordered the final enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas at the end of the American Civil War.

What We Believe

The Bible is the inspired Word of God

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and our only infallible authority. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible should have the place of pre-eminence in the church, home and each person’s life. By doing this, there is a joyful, fruitful, and victorious Christian testimony.
