The First Unitarian Universalist Church of Essex County will hold its October FAITH+WORKS on October 20, 2019. For this special occasion, we will travel to Riverside Church in New York City for “Stolen Hands, Stolen Lands: From 1619 to a Just Future.” This is an observance in honor of the 400th anniversary of the first Africans to arrive in North America and sold into bondage. Rev Dr William J. Barber II, leader of the Poor People’s Campaign, will give the homily on this occasion. The doors will open at 5 PM and the service will begin at 6 PM. Ministers are invited to come with their robes and participate in the procession and recession.
