EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

What Juneteenth is-
Juneteenth -- a blending of the words June and nineteenth -- is the oldest regular US celebration of the end of slavery.
It commemorates June 19, 1865: the day that Union Army Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas, and told slaves of their emancipation saying, "In accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free."
That day came more than two years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. Even after Lincoln declared all enslaved people free on paper, that hadn't necessarily been the case in practice.
African Americans and others mark Juneteenth -- also called Emancipation Day -- much like the Fourth of July, with parties, picnics and gatherings with family and friends.
Juneteenth has been celebrated informally since 1865, but Texas became the first state to make it a state holiday in 1980.
On June 19th, Presbyterian Church USA will hold a A Celebration of African American Intercultural Congregational Support.

God's Ministry in Motion
from Jeff Segur, TVPC Leadership
We find ourselves in strange and interesting times while at the same time, life continues to roll on. We try to put our best foot forward and keep our sanity in check.
How are you adapting? How are you coping? Where do you see yourself in all of this? Where do you see God in this current situation?
In all of this, we need to see God's guidance and presence in our lives. We invite you to see God's guidance and presence in the ministry at Terrace View and give praise to God that so much continues even though the building has been closed.
Pray for guidance and wisdom from God, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus for our perseverance and ask the Holy Spirit for the passion and power to endure so that we may all continue to be the light of God's Ministry in Motion.
Message of Hope
from Presbyterian Women- Joy Durrant, Vice Moderator
"Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers."
... Romans 12: 12-13
Rejoice in Hope! Our hope is not a wishful thinking kind of hope, as in "I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow." As Christians, we are marked by the unmerited gift of Jesus' redemptive love. Through faith, we can discard wishful thinking hope for a hope routed in certainty. We can hope for a future because we are certain of God's love, certain of salvation through faith in Jesus, certain of the Holy Spirit's guidance, and certain of eternal life. Surely, these certainties are reasons to celebrate! To rejoice is at the core of how we respond top God's grace and approach our lives each day in good time and in the challenging times in which we now find ourselves.
Rejoicing in hope affords us the opportunity to be patient even while suffering, to help God's children in need, and to extend hospitality to and learn from others, including (and especially) those who are unlike us. Our tangible actions of rejoicing in hope are the key that open doors for a glimpse of the kingdom of God on earth.
