Weekly eBlast
July 18, 2013


Sunday, July 21, 2013, will be a day of celebration! 

 We will celebrate Liberian independence. This great country, colonized in the 1820's by freed and freeborn slaves from the United States, declared its independence on July 26, 1867. Since that time, Liberia has become a country known for its rich natural resources and three million Liberian residents known for their generous hospitality.

Join us this Sunday at First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens
9:00 AM and 11:00 AM services. 
We'll have a grand celebration.
