EAST LINCOLN: Gold Hill Missionary Baptist Church at 7747 Old Plank Road will have its monthly Food Giveaway Saturday from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM. Anyone who needs food is invited to come...first come, first served. They ask that you remain in your car and they'll bring the food to you.
LINCOLNTON: The first in a series of solo potter sales will have Rick Moss filling the Solarium at the Lincoln Cultural Center with a pottery selection including face jugs, platters, mugs, plates and more. They will be limiting the number of people who can enter at one time, but there will be plenty of time over the two days to shop--Saturday beginning at 9 AM and Sunday afternoon at 3.
The Greater Hickory Ministerial Alliance, an association of primarily African American congregations, will hold a call to action Saturday at 11:00 AM at Union Square in downtown Hickory. Their focus will be on racism, police brutality, and injustice in light of recent events. The public is invited to hear local pastors in the Alliance address the outrage and grief of the African American community and their allies as well as demand changes in the criminal justice system that can bring healing and peace to our world. "In times like these, pastors have to speak out prophetically against injustice on behalf of God and God's people" said the Rev. Antonio Logan, pastor of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church and president of the Greater Hickory Ministerial Alliance.
Logan will speak along with the Rev. Reggie Longcrier, Exodus Missionary Outreach Church; the Rev. David E. Roberts II, Morning Star First Baptist Church; the Rev. Cassandra Rawls, Hartzell Memorial United Methodist Church; the Rev. Kurt Massey, Hickory Bible Church; and the Rev. Anthony Freeman, Clinton Tabernacle AME Zion Church. The event will be live streamed on Facebook through the Greater Hickory Ministerial Alliance page at https://www.facebook.com/Greater-Hickory-Ministerial-Alliance-101827691371919/.
