Church Announcement: Church Catch Phrase For 2015!
I strongly believed that if African Americans are going to celebrate a holiday New Year should be it. Historically on Dec. 31, most black congregations, use that particular service
as the start of their devotion service for the year ahead.
I also think New Year more important for us as a people than the 4th of July or any other holiday. Our history teaches that on December 31,1862 the black community would gather in churches and private homes all across the nation, anxiously awaiting news that the Emancipation Proclamation actually had become law. So, at the stroke of midnight January 1, all slaves in the Confederate States were declared legally free.
So, when the news was received, there were prayers, shouts, and songs of joy as people fell to their knees and thanked God. Black folks have gathered in churches annually on New Year's Eve ever since way back then, praising God for bringing us safely through another year. I have compounded below a number of churches with their slogan, buzzword, jingle and catchphrase for the coming year.
