Mark your calendar for this Thursday, January 19,

from 7:00-8:30pm! First Baptist Greenville is partnering with Baylor University’s Baptist Heritage and History Society to host an online webinar featuring Dr. Kimberly Kellison, Professor of History at Baylor University. Dr. Kellison will present on the research surrounding her new book, Forging a Christian Order: South Carolina Baptists, Race and Slavery, 1696-1860. This webinar is part of a series titled, “Making Baptist History Public History.” I will offer a pastoral response to Dr. Kellison’s lecture and wonder together how historical questions of humanity, slavery and faith continue to shape our relationship to the church, the community, and God. There will be plenty of time for Q+A following the presentation, so come prepared with your questions and thoughts!

This is a public (online) event, meaning everyone is invited! This would be a great event for Sunday School class leaders to attend to gain material for future class discussions; it is also a fit for anyone sensitive to the tension between the reality of American history and how we choose to interpret and recollect our shared history. Lifelong learners and anyone considering the history of slavery and the church for the first time is encouraged to tune in!

Register for this webinar.
