Homewod Flossmoor Juneteenth Festival
Junne 19th at Homewood Flossmoor High School
Juneteenth is a holiday celebrated on the 19th of June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the Confederate States. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day.
Voting is a right and a responsibility. Please vote for the person you believe is best for the country.
Voter suppression is an attack on our democracy. Please educate yourself. It seems that some people only care about winning elections, and have no interest in democracy.
A Day of Prayer
At Lansing Village Hall, 3141 Ridge Road, Lansing, IL 60438. Members of the community are invited to come together and pray on June 9, 2021, at 4:00 PM. As Apostle Paul admonished us to do;
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” I Timothy 2:1-2 ESV
It is a time to pray for God’s intervention in our lives, the lives of our leaders, and in our nation. The venue is the History Plaza Park – Adjacent to Village Hall at Burnham and Ridge Road and the time is 4:00 PM. Pastor Bigsby will be leading the prayer session.
We shall be prayed for:
- Racial justice
- End of the pandemic
- For love
- Youths, adults, and seniors
- Village, county, state, and nation
- Schools, first responders, politicians, and businesses to make the best and wisest decisions.
- Safer community
We are expecting a crowd size of 20 people. We will only be on the sidewalk and will not block any doors to the Village Hall. If the number of people exceeds 20, then we will circle the building or use both sides of Burnham Ave. We will practice CDC social distancing and face mask wearing guidelines.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a sign that says what they are praying for and everyone is welcome to pray with us, including local politicians and law enforcement. For additional information contact Reverend David Bigsby at 708-878-9296, In The Upper Room Ministry and/or LCC at 708-365-9510.
