The Black church experience is multifaceted and multidimensional. When you go you will experience heavenly layers of diversity, gifts, talents, and passion. My church in particular carries a certain grace to bring together black people from around the globe from different countries in Africa to the Caribbean and everywhere in between. The black church is diverse and expands outside of the church walls into the four corners of the earth; we’re everywhere, we’re powerful, and we’re arising.

Church was my second home growing up, full of a community of prideful people who wanted nothing more than to help you find joy in life and use your gifts to give back.

Before the pandemic I was attending The Enon Church on a regular basis; I was considering joining because I felt the pastor consistently conveys a good word and members seem to be very welcoming and friendly. Also, the music and choir are definitely a draw for me because of my long involvement with the music ministry in my home church.

Since I was young girl, I was taught the value of the black church from my mother and I instilled that same value of Christianity into my own children’s upbringing. The black church is deeply rooted to my faith. I am a member of the Enon Baptist Church in College Park under the leadership of Dr. Gregory L. Pollard. I have truly benefited from the spiritual teachings of Pastor Pollard and from the love and grace First Lady Libby expresses to all. I love and enjoy being a member and leader of the Ministry in Motion Season Saints Dance Ministry, which I truly miss very much.
