America’s Black Holocaust Museum was founded in 1984 by Dr. James Cameron, the only known survivor of a lynching in the U.S. For more than 20 years, the museum told the story of African-Americans in the United States, but in 2008, during the great recession, the museum was forced to close for financial reasons. The vision was kept alive through an online museum which tells the same story: www.abhmuseum.org. Now, the museum is being rebuilt on the same spot it existed originally – 401 W. North Ave., the corner of North and Vel Phillips Ave.
On October 21, ministers, members, and friends of 12 SEA UCC congregations attended a sneak peek open house at ABHM in the hopes that it would motivate churches and members to raise money this fall to donate to the museum. Through the end of the year donations will be quadrupled due to matching grants! Individual donations will be accepted and may be sent to Plymouth Church, 2717 E. Hampshire St., Milwaukee, WI, 53211. Please make sure to designate ABHM on the check’s memo line. Contact Rev. Curt Anderson by clicking here with any questions. To read the full article about the museum click here.
This will be a combined meeting of all four Associations as well as the Conference Annual Meeting. This unusual format is in response to our hosting of General Synod in June 2019.
The intention of holding combined conference and association meetings is to most efficiently transact the business of both entities of the church in this year of hosting General Synod. This really is only 1 meeting, as opposed to viewing it as two separate meetings on the same weekend. The vision is for church delegates to represent their church in the necessary work of both entities. Therefore, there will be one registration fee for the entire meeting, which will cover Friday evening and Saturday.
The meeting registration fees will cover the meeting and meals. It will NOT include your hotel room. No childcare will be provided for either meeting. For more information, including hotel cost, click here.
