Civil Rights Pilgrimage

Date: September 10, 2019

We want to encourage folks to attend the local Civil Rights Pilgrimage, a walking tour of Columbia’s historically black churches on September 22. This is an opportunity for us to practice our core belief Unity, outside the walls of our building, and it’s a chance to meet other brothers and sisters in Christ while learning about the history of Columbia’s black community.

Anyone is welcome, and the organizers hope to see people of all races and denominations attend. Anyone who would like to come just needs to show up at 3 p.m. to St. Luke United Methodist Church, 204 E. Ash St. The event will begin there with a devotion and singing of hymns. From there, the visitors will visit multiple locations then return to St. Luke for dessert and coffee. Participants are asked to bring a dessert to share. The event ends at 6 p.m. Buses will be available for those unable to walk from church to church.
