Amazing Grace Sunday

Two hundred years ago, British politician William Wilberforce and his band of loyal friends took on the most powerful forces of their day to end the slave trade. His mentor was John Newton, the slave-trader-turned-song-writer, who wrote the world’s most popular hymn, Amazing Grace. This year is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade. But the work of justice and mercy continues. 27 million men, women, and children are still enslaved around the globe. How sweet the sound of freedom. Join churches around the globe in singing Amazing Grace and in praying for the end of slavery once and for all.

Tomorrow, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church will join more than 3,000 churches across the U.S. for Amazing Grace Sunday on February 18. We will have a special service tomorrow in honor of Amazing Grace Sunday. Everyone is welcome to attend.
