The Literary Club meets by Zoom on the first Sunday of every month with lively discussions of books by black women, including Toni Morrison, Angela Flournoy, Valerie Jarrett, and Isabel Wilkerson.
Join us on April 2, 2023 to discuss Memphis: a Novel, by Tara Stringfellow.
A spellbinding debut novel tracing three generations of a Southern Black family and one daughter’s discovery that she has the power to change her family’s legacy.
Summer 1995: Ten-year-old Joan, her mother, and her younger sister flee her father’s explosive temper and seek refuge at her mother’s ancestral home in Memphis. This is not the first time violence has altered the course of the family’s trajectory. Half a century earlier, Joan’s grandfather built this majestic house in the historic Black neighborhood of Douglass—only to be lynched days after becoming the first Black detective in the city. Joan tries to settle into her new life, but family secrets cast a longer shadow than any of them expected. Goodreads

Children and Youth
The goal of Christian education is to prepare each student to glorify God, to enjoy Him, and to serve Him in a chosen calling. Currently, we are not meeting due to Covid-19. Check out the children sermon tab. You'll find a link to a weekly sermon and activities. Join us on 5th Sundays where we focus our church service on children.
The mission is to provide support and encouragement to the youth of Northeastern through financial assistance toward education beyond high school. Funds for the scholarship stem solely from contributions of dedicated and caring organizations and individual members of Northeastern. Occasionally, outside organizations through a member's sponsorship may contribute.

Christian Education at Northeastern over the years has fulfilled its mission in a variety of ways to enhance the spiritual growth of the members and of the extended community through many activities. Because we are a congregation in which African Americans predominate, our focus in all of these activities is on the ways in which African American history and culture have influenced our religious heritage.
We are currently holding many of our meetings and activities on a virtual platform or by conference call due to the pandemic.
If you are interested in participating in any of these activities, don’t hesitate to call the church office for the most current contact information. We welcome new members--both virtually and in person!
Whether in current or past activities, Northeastern Presbyterian Church continues to support Christian Education based on African American multicultural experiences. We welcome all to join us as we prayerfully work towards our goals.
