Worship with us on Juneteenth as we welcome guest preacher Rev. Fredd L. Ward III. Rev. Fredd is the Senior Pastor at South Congregational Church in East Hartford. His message will be “Proclamations Are Powerful (And Also Problematic)!”
In partnership with the West Hartford African American Social and Cultural Organization (WHAASCO), First Church is holding a special ground-breaking for a historic marker dedicated to Lemuel Haynes after worship at 11:30. All are welcome! Contact Barbara Lewis, Judy Schmitt, or Jennifer deSimas with questions.
Be sure to join the Juneteenth festivities in Blue Back Square after noon. A community picnic and performances by local artists and students are among the events scheduled.
