To the families of color that we serve; we stand with you in celebration in remembrance that on this day in 1865 General Gordon Granger declared that all enslaved people were now FREE. All of the children that we serve are Valuable, Beautiful, Precious Children of God! Let us look with hope toward a bright future for our children and children’s children to come.

Tonight followers of Jesus will be gathering south of Steele Bridge along the Portland waterfront for a Juneteenth Prayer Vigil from 5:30-7pm. If you
plan on attending please wear a mask and know that this will be a beautiful time of prayer and hearing from our black and brown brothers and sisters.
