It is sunny in Atlanta.
We are waiting for you.
Take a moment to give thanks on this Thursday!
Join us March 31-April 3 in Atlanta, GA for the annual gathering of Black Staff Association. It promises to be an exciting meeting with lots of information. The Executive Team is busy working for you.
The 2019 Annual Meeting is planned to be an impactful and meaningful meeting. In addition to discussing how the Special General Conference may potentially impact the Black Church and Black Staff, we will have two full days of exciting plenary sessions and a day of service.
Meeting Highlights Include:
Visiting the Atlanta University Center where we will see some rare and historical documents such as an original Green Book, documents for the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection (https://youtu.be/CqkPndOY2N0), and rare murals painted by Hale Woodruff. Mr. Woodruff was chair of the art department from 1931 to 1946 and one of the most influential African-American artists-educators of his generation.
Global Ministries is hosting us on Tuesday. We will end the day with the membership dinner. We will hear some smooth jazz and spoken word and celebrate the achievements of the year and learn about Anna E. Hall and John Stewart…part of our proud history.
For our Great Day of Service project on Wednesday, we will roll up our sleeves at East Point First Mallalieu UMC. Remember the words of Atlanta’s most beloved son Martin Luther King, Jr., “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.”
Hope to see you in Atlanta! Please find attached to this e-mail the registration form along with a tentative schedule. Make the decision today to join us with a friend or two. This meeting is too good not to share with others serving in ministry beyond the local church.
I want to extend a personal invitation to you to join Black Staff Association. WE NEED YOU! If you are not able to join us, we would appreciate you paying your membership dues for the year. We want to hear from you.
