Charlene Watts presents “Ode to Juneteenth,” a dramatic presentation about the response of the enslaved people in Galveston when they were informed of the Emancipation Proclamation. You do not want to miss this amazing woman and the story she has to tell us.

If you are not on one of our calling lists, please call the church office (210-493-4501) for a lunch reservation. A forever membership to LifeTimers is yours for a mere $10.

LifeTimers gather together on the third Thursday of the month from September through May in Maresh Hall at 11:00 AM.
