New Hope Celebrates Black History Month

posted Mar 6, 2010, 8:32 PM by Aniesha Alford   [ updated Mar 6, 2010, 9:02 PM ]

Each year during the month of February, New Hope United Methodist Church celebrates Black History Month. This year, the children, youth, and adult members provided facts on influential African American leaders including Dr. Martin Luther King, lesser-known African Americans such as Nat Love – an African American cowboy, and local African American leaders such as our very own Vonta Leach – a Rowland Native, NFL player, and church and community supporter.

Some of the highlights of this year's celebration included the recitation of Dr. Maya Angelou's famous poem 'Still I Rise' by Miss Briana Grice, the performance of a traditional African dance by Mrs. Edith Washington, and the presence of many of New Hope's members dressed in their African attire.

New Hope United Methodist Church was awarded the first place trophy for their float in the Rowland Annual Christmas Parade and Festival.

For the 10th year, Ms. Emma Burns, with assistance from church members, friends and businesses in the community, coordinated entrance into the parade.

"My work with the youth and the Town of Rowland is a labor of love. I look forward each year to working with our youth and serving my church and the Town of Rowland", said Burns.

New Hope’s pastor, Rev. Larry Robinson, was elated by the church’s achievement and continued growth in the church. He is especially excited by the church’s increased outreach to the Rowland community.

“I commend our children and those who supported them in this event”, said Pastor Larry Robinson.

Whether you roll strikes or gutter balls, it’s fun to bowl and fellowship with New Hope United Methodist Church members and friends as part of the newly formed bowling team.

The team’s first meeting on Friday, January 15 was a get acquainted and practice meeting. League play begins on Friday, January 22 at 6:30 pm at the Lumberton Bowling Center.

The League currently consists of two teams.  More teams are expected to form as the league picks up momentum.

Currently, Darius McCallum is leading the way with an average of over 200, Pastor Larry Robinson broke the 100 pin mark, and all members are getting back into the “swing” after being away from bowling for some time.

The league is open to all church members and friends.  So come on out and get in on the fun.
