KYW News Report

The Equity and Social Justice committee would like to encourage all members to participate in Moorestown’s 3rd Annual Juneteenth celebration being held at the Perkins Art Center from 10-3 on June 18th. We are proud that as a church we are providing parking and a shuttle to support this event.

Methodism in Black and White

Rev. Patti Walz offers a presentation entitled, “Methodism in Black and White.” Included are photos of Philadelphia’s Historic St. George’s United Methodist Church and Mother Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, and an overview of the difficult history of union and division. The photo below was taken from St George’s balcony that was built with a segregated section for its Black members. Those members left the church, went down the street, and eventually developed the AME church.
