Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church Celebrates

African American History Month

Join us!

Special Events


Sunday Forums

 Each forum is held in our Family Room following the worship service.


February 11 – Literacy

The ability to read is a powerful tool; this is why it was forbidden by law to teach the enslaved to read. The book chosen to showcase the theme of literacy is Bronx Masquerade by Nikki Grimes. This is a teenage/young adult novel that explores the power of the spoken and written word. We will have copies available in the church library that may be borrowed.


February 18 – Music

Music is important in the African American experience, in both secular and religious life. By way of video clips and group singing, we will explore the power and meaning of music in helping to understand the life, history, and theological context of African Americans.


Soul Food Dinner

African American History Month at Lakeshore concludes with the rich fellowship of our Soul Food Dinner, which follows worship on the last Sunday of the month.
