“Emanuel”: The Untold Story of the Victims and Survivors of the Emanuel Church Shootings in Charleston, South Carolina

Emanuel Directed by Brian Ivie Friday, March 8th at 9:00 pm ​

Presentation of this film is made possible by the generous support of the First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church of Farmington Hills.

On June 17, 2015, national headlines blazed the story: Churchgoers gunned down during prayer service in Charleston, South Carolina. After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, nine African Americans lay dead, leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror. Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, Emanuel, from Executive Producers Stephen Curry and Viola Davis, is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.

5th Sunday—Season of Preparation

Sunday, April 2

Scripture: Ezekiel 2:1-10

Spiritual Insight: Are you stronger today than when you first started on this “Season of Preparation” journey?  What is the evidence?  Are you able to discern rebellion against the Father?  Do you know sin when you see it in others and in yourself?  Do you speak truth to power?  The Holy Spirit who dwells within you and is stronger day by day will give you God’s “words to (speak to the rebellious) whether they will listen or refuse [to listen]”.

Personal Prayer:  Embolden me Holy Spirit! I pray that I have no fear of persons, fear their hateful and callus words nor become dismayed by their presence.  Give me courage and power that because you dwell in me and guide me, You will use me for the edification of Jehovah! Praise be to God Almighty.  Amen.

 

“Liberty and Justice for All”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Liberty and Justice for All”

Please join in solidarity on Sunday, September 4th  (2016) as we worship worldwide recognizing:  “Confession, Repentance and Commitment to End Racism Sunday”

Racism will not end with the passage of legislation alone; it will also require a change of heart and thinking. This is an effort which the faith community must lead, and be the conscience of the nation. We will call upon every church, temple, mosque and faith communion to make their worship service on this Sunday a time to confess and repent for the sin and evil of racism, this includes ignoring, tolerating and accepting racism and to make a commitment to end racism by the example of our lives and actions.

What:

  • Every faith leader is asked to preach about racism and our responsibility as people of faith to end racism.
  • Bishop Adam J. Richardson has prepared a powerful and moving litany for this Sunday, which we will get out and widely distribute soon.
  • “The Male Investment Plan”, a toolkit developed by Rev. Staccato Powell will be available as a guide. It is designed to effectively position African American males ages 5-25 through a rigorous and dedicated Saturday Academy mentoring program with tools to equip them academically, while also teaching them civil responsibility and spiritual enlightenment. The Male Investment Plan is a ready made tool to be implemented in churches and organizations everywhere. The only requirement is committed leadership of implementation through to successful effectiveness
  • Send a report of your Sunday’s engagement to: JDupontW@aol.com.

(Photos and personal stories are encouraged.)

Historically, the Black church has been the conscience of the nation; and we shrink not from that conscience stirring role for the nation once again.

This is a joint effort spearheaded by the AME, AME Zion, and CME Churches.  Joining in partnership are the United Methodist and UAME Churches, the National Council of Churches (and representatives from communions which comprise the NCC), and the Conference of National Black Churches.

Please be in prayer as we begin this effort, asking God to guide and empower us for this effort.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Bishop Reginald T. Jackson, chair – Social Action Commission  or Sister Jackie DuPont Walker, Connectional Director of Social Action.
