Celebrate Black History Month

Each year, St. Luke’s honors black history throughout the month of February with special programming in the Davis Room on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. after worship. After the close of the first ever black presidency, and into a future for us all to share, join us in these offerings, which explore and exalt the work of those who fought for civil rights.

For information on spiritual enrichment at St. Luke’s, or about our Black History Month programming, please email SET@slechurch.org.
