Central Baptist Church's affiliation with the Philadelphia New Sanctuary Movement is a renewal of CBC's prophetic engagement in the original Sanctuary Movement, declared in a congregational vote in 1984. This reaffirmation today of our historic commitment is grounded in our congregation's vision of “justice rooted in spirituality” and “making a difference in community.”-Congregational Meeting April 25th, 2010.

Day of the Dead -- Nov 1st Action at City Hall and DA's office

DAY OF THE DEAD PROCESSION on Nov 1st @ City Hall and the DA's officeNSM plans are in the works to put together a creative public action calling for the end of the fear and silence in the Philadelphia immigrant community due to police and ICE collaboration!  Watch for details. As we process around city hall, we'll be stopping at each corner for a different symbolic action to be lead by various immigrant groups. 

*** There has been some conversation among CBC's immigration group about organizing to do group singing at public events like this.  NSM has asked if CBC can be prepared for Nov 1st and lead something musical on one of the four corners?
