OneRace Movement is calling the church to the Day of Remembrance on August 25th of 2019 to commemorate the year the first slaves were introduced to the United States at Jamestown, Virginia 400 years ago in 1619. This year marks the 400-year anniversary, which will provide a significant opportunity for the church to engage in the national discourse around the celebration and lamentation of the African American legacy.
Lamentation and celebration are key expressions that will comprise the Day of Remembrance and the season leading up to it. We will invite people specifically into a special service hosted at participating churches across our city on Sunday, August 25th. The service will be comprised of times of reflection, response and resolution, intended to unite and strengthen the Body of Christ. You can register as an individual and sign up to receive more details about participating churches, or as a Senior Pastor, you can register your congregation as a participating church to host this special service.
At this historic time, we believe the church must demonstrate leadership by speaking with clarity regarding Biblical justice and racial reconciliation. As we march toward oneness leading up to August 25th we will prepare our hearts together through equipping events, Regional Prayer Gatherings, as well as pastor & marketplace groups and the 400 Conference. Come on this journey with us as we march toward oneness, a journey into the heart of the Lord, and into oneness with each other.
