Black History Month

We are celebrating Black History Month at Emmanuel Baptist Church. Darryl Hambrick was the guest speaker at Emmanuel Baptist Church. Speaking on time was the focus of his message. We must always keep in mind that time changes each second of everyday and we should learn from the past in order to prepare for the future. The message was well delivered in an appropriate amount of time. The congregation wore African attire in celebration, also. The liturgical dancers performed as well as members of the Sunday school that read what Black History was about.
