Mark your calendars for Wed., Oct. 29, 6:30-7:30pm at Kerr Hall. Bishop Peter Storey will visit Edenton St. UMC for a one evening only event. Bishop Storey will help transform and shape our hearts and minds to the likeness of Christ with his conversation with Rev. Sally Bates.
Bishop Storey, in his 40-year ministry in South Africa, was defined by sustained opposition to the infamous apartheid government and its oppressive racist policies, first in Cape Town during the forced removals of people of color and as chaplain to Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners on Robben Island. Later, as a Methodist and Ecumenical leader he played a significant national role in the Church’s anti-apartheid struggle. He and then Bishop Desmond Tutu were witnesses-in-chief for the SACC when the apartheid regime put the organization on trial.
Childcare available with reservation through Robin Ellison at the church office or online.
