About The Event

The first of a two-part program exploring the early history of First Church and its ties to slavery in Cuba.

At the first session, on February 12, the First Church History Group presents "The Stories behind the Tiffany Window." This session will explore the group's findings on the topic of the Tiffany window in the sanctuary, its connection to the Atkins family during the nineteenth century, and the family's economic ties to slave labor on sugar plantations in Cuba.

At the second session, on February 26, the History Group will lead a follow-up session, "How Do We Respond?" The group will pose some questions about what these historical findings might mean for the church today, for general discussion.

All are welcome. Sign up to receive an email reminder three days before the event. Email Samuel Foster, or fill out the signup form, if you have any questions.
