In the context of a gentrifying neighborhood the predominantly African American Church is compelled to reach out to its new neighbors and of all ethnic backgrounds. All are invited to join for the morning services at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM in our Sanctuary or for Unity Sunday at 10:00 AM on the first Sunday of every month.
