Galilee Missionary Baptist Church has featured several activities for Black History Month, including a Black Business Showcase. On Sunday, Feb. 18, the Black Business Showcase was open to members of the church and non-members between the church’s 8 a.m. and 11a .m. services. About 40 businesses participated, including The Chronicle.

Dr. Nathan E. Scovens, senior pastor at Galilee, said that the showcase was part of the church’s mission statement to make disciples, build community and change lives.

“We strongly believe in economic development and opportunities that will enhance and empower our community,” Scovens said in a written statement.

He offered a Scripture for the businesses, Proverbs 16:3 (NLT): Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.”

He ended the statement with the closing, “In the spirit of Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics).”
